[Verse 1: Oliver Sim]
If I'm beating every hand away
No one stays
I've got so cautious
And now I choke on every move I make
Let one play
To be that careless

[Pre-Chorus: Oliver Sim]
With every kiss from a friend
With everything I pretend not to feel
Am I too high? Am I too proud?
Is the music too loud… for me to hear?

[Chorus: Oliver Sim]
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise
Try as I might
With every beat comes a violent noise
The melody's sung
And I don't know the voice
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise

[Verse 2: Romy Madley Croft]
You've been staying out late
Trying your best to escape
I hope you find what you're looking for
Let a moment take place
Without running away
I hope you silence the noise

[Pre-Chorus: Oliver Sim]
How could eyes this wide
Lose sight of a world outside?
I've looked away, cowardice
With every kiss from a friend
With everything I pretend not to feel
Am I too high? Am I too proud?
Is the music too loud… for me to hear?

[Chorus: Oliver Sim]
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise
Try as I might
With every beat comes a violent noise
The melody's sung
And I don't know the voice
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise
