I like looking at the sky
As the wind the plays through
The skirts of the trees
The silence knows
How afraid we are of it

Cherished memories
Bleed and bloom
Our secrets like seeds
Get swept up and carried through
Our neighbourhood

Safe as houses
Tuck me in
Daylight waits for no man
You're still young and breathing's easy
Suck it in
What a waste this facade
What a pity we've come this far

The rain will fall and baptise
Our strongholds, our sheltered lives
Closed blinds, drawn curtains
And vinyl floors can't hide

Sane memories
Bleed and bloom
Our secrets like weeds
Creeps up to the roof
Our neighbourhood

Safe as houses
Tuck me in
Daylight waits for no man
You're still young and breathing's easy
Suck it in
What a waste this facade
What a pity we've come this far

Our lucious denial
Our devoured minds
Our thoughts remain impotent
Our pillows stay fertile

Safe as houses
Tuck me in
Daylight waits for no man
You're still young and breathing's easy
Suck it in
What a waste this facade
What a pity we've come this far

What a pity we've come this far
