Strange empty faces
Staring at me
I don't hear any music
But my foot counts till three
And then my mind starts swirling a beautiful

Who are you darling
Take your shoes off, come here
In my arms you'll be safe
While I hum in my ear
Nice and softly this wonderful

Let me swim on your lap
Climb through your eyes
You can eat my past
I'll drink all my lies

I can't hear you darling
Long gone are my ears
They went fishing for stories
In the sea of lost years
And now I'm drowning in the silence of a howling

My eyes walked out
Hunting for faces
That are buried in caves
Of forgotten races
Winking to the beat of this powerful

Oh my love
I must have been sleeping
Why don't you wear shoes
And why am I weeping
