lyrics

Like sirens at night
Like a child crying, a fight,
Or breaking glass.
The second when the war starts,
The moment when the lights go dark.

Slight creaking, when you're all alone.
The house can seem to breathe and the walls moan.
Voices on the wind; you let in
Fear, and like a wild rose it
Rambles and chokes you.

There are sounds, liable
To slip into your ear,
Cultivate an ancient fear
In a dark and primal
Corner of your mind,
These tones...
Will echo around
Behind your eyes
Where worry's allowed
Take hold
Will echo around like sirens.

Like violence, in real life,
Screaming civil strife. A call,
To arms in a barroom brawl.
All you hear is
Meat-thwack-thud, a gasp
You're asked but you can't even recall
What started it all.

Like sirens at night
Like a child crying, a fight,
Or breaking glass.
The second when the war starts,
The moment when the lights go dark.

There are sounds, liable
To slip into your ear,
Cultivate an ancient fear
In a dark and primal
Corner of your mind,
These tones...
Will echo around
Behind your eyes
Where worry's allowed
Take hold
Will echo around like sirens.
