lyrics

He left his fork out on the table
She doesn’t like dirty dishes left on the table
He left the wooden door open wide
She never opens the wooden door to the outside

And they sit in
Silence
At the table every night and they
Speak
Only to pass the rice
And when it’s storming
They go down to the lake
For goodness sake
Cause when you’re underwater
You can’t feel the rain

Gated house, not for keeping out
But for keeping in
Alarm code on, not to catch a con
But a prisoner, planning escape

And they sit in
Silence
At the table every night and they
Speak
Only to pass the rice
And when it’s storming
They go down to the lake
For goodness sake
Cause when you’re underwater
You can’t feel the rain
Oh you can’t feel it, no no

Prisoner don’t look now
Just bide your time
Locked in people
Try not to look for a sign
Spend your quiet hours
In hushed power
Waiting for the day
When you may say
“I’m free to roam the desert sands
With an icicle inside my hands
No more hiding when the storm comes in
Let it hit full force with the wind
But no
you’re just a boy
Don’t you dare make a noise, oh oh

Don’t you break the,
Don’t you break the -

Silence
At the table every night, oh ooh
Speak
Only to pass the rice
And when it’s storming
They go down to the lake
For goodness sake
Cause when you’re underwater
You can’t feel the rain, ooh ooh
You can’t, you can’t feel it,
Oh, you can’t feel the rain
