It's Getting Louder


1. It's Getting Louder

I never say
I think of nothing else
On any day
I could betray myself

I never spend
I only waste what's mine
I never lend
When I can borrow time

I'm staring into space
I'm hiding in disgrace
I cover up my face
I leave this lonely place

It's getting louder
I feel it ringing in my head
It's getting nearer
It's like a stranger in my bed

For every word
To pass unspoken by
For every dream
That's left unbroken

I can count a thousand times
Can read a thousand lines
Can see a thousand signs
That say the blame is mine

It's getting louder
I feel it ringing in my head
It's getting nearer
It's like a stranger in my bed
It's getting harder
I can't go anywhere alone
It's getting darker
I feel it raining in my room

Now I'm standing on my head
I'm lying in my bed
Believing what I said
I close my eyes instead

It's getting louder
I feel it ringing in my head
It's getting nearer
It's like a stranger in my bed
It's getting harder
I can't go anywhere alone
It's getting darker
I feel it raining in my room

2. Island

I sleep with eyes wide open
I speak thoughts I know have never been spoken now

I dream in fifteen colours
I scream silently but over and over

Nothing to say
Nothing means nothing
Life go away
Life leave me something but

I can feel this world in motion
I can feel this world's illusion
I can feel a world within me
I can feel this island spin me round

I try, I never reach there
I cry, intuition leading me nowhere

Nothing to do
Nothing to bound me
Life is untrue
Life all around me but

I can feel this world in motion
I can feel this world's illusion
I can feel a world within me
I can feel this island spin me round

Living in an open space
Sitting in an empty place
Staring at a stranger's face
Disappear without a trace

Nothing to say
Nothing means nothing
Life go away
Life leave me something but

I can feel this world in motion
I can feel this world's illusion
I can feel a world within me
I can feel this island spin me round

I can feel this world in motion
I can feel this world's illusion
I can feel a world within me
I can feel this island spin me round

Living in an open space
Sitting in an empty place
Staring at a stranger's face
Disappear without a trace

Nothing to do
Nothing to bound me
Life is untrue
Life all around me but

I sleep with eyes wide open
I speak thoughts I know have never been spoken
