### What does this say?

This is probably trivial for some of you. We shall see.

If you're stumped, here's another sample:

NJ7I9U VNF7UJB6R5 WRCXFS
CBGD6HV5E4 NM8YUHI7 4BG57T6
CFR5 3C4F65R

Hint:
Spoiler:
It's a lot simpler than you think.

It almost certainly has something to do with the positions of keys on a keyboard, but my first few guesses as to the nature of the relationship haven't yielded anything. Actually, I'm certain it's not a substitution cipher, so maybe my intuition about the keyboard is misleading me,

and I don't have the time at the moment to figure it out.

Well, you're not wrong, but it's probably not the kind of relationship you're thinking of.

Thanks, skeptical scientist, for knowing symbols and giving them to me.
