You told us that
We were too young
Now that night's closing in
And in the half light
We run

Lock us up safe
And hide the key
But the night tears us loose

You can't recognize me
And I can't recognize you

We run through the streets
That we know so well
And the houses hide so much
We're in the half light
None of us can tell
They hide the ocean in a shell

The ocean in a shell

Our heads are just houses
Without enough windows
They say you hear human voices
But they only echo

They only echo
They only echo
Only echo

(We are not listening, we are on the streets)
(We are not listening, we are on the streets)
(We are not listening, we are on the streets)
