lyrics

IS THIS FENCE TO KEEP OUT OR TO LET IN?
BEST TO STAY MUTE TO THE DEAFENING DIN,
THAT'S THE PARTY LINE WE ALL HAVE TO TOW,
BUT DO WE ALL HAVE TO,
SHOULDER THIS HEAVY LOAD?

THERE'S STREAMS OF DISEASES, STILLBORNS AND MURDERS,
THERE ARE NO DREAMS JUST SLEEP WITH NO MURMUR,
THERE'S A LULLABY SUNG BY STATIC NOISE SIRENS,
AND POEMS AND SLOGANS COMPOSED BY A SLAGHEAP,
LORDING ITS KEEP.

WE'RE ALL NOISELESS THUNDER,
ALL THIS WILL PULL US UNDER.

THE WAVES BREAK DOWN ON THIS FATAL SHORE,
BECAUSE THERE IS NO LOVE IN LORE,
AND THE PAINT SPLATTERS OVER THE DUSTY WHITE CANVAS,
REVEALS THE FORM OF A BRICK-SHIT IRON BAR CENTRE.

TO BLACKBAR, TO SILENCE, TO BE SEEN INSINCERE,
LIKE A FUNERAL DIRGE USED TO CULTIVATE FEAR,
TO BE WEIGHTLESS, TO BE LIGHT, TO BE LIFTED UP,
I AM BUT ONE BUT MANY COULD SHARE THEIR CUP.

WE'RE ALL NOISELESS THUNDER,
ALL THIS WILL PULL US UNDER.
AND THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER,
BUT I'D RATHER RUN WITH ANOTHER.

THERE'S A CLAWING AT THE BACK OF MY HEAD,
A CLATTERING ROUND MY SKULL,
MY SOUL SEEKS THE LAY OF THE LAND,
MY BODY IS A BATTERING RAM,
I BELIEVE THESE CUNTS WILL SINK,
THAT THERE IS POWER THAT LIVES IN INK,
THAT TO CRANE STIFF TIGHT AT THE FALL OF THE SWORD,
IS THE PATH NOT TO TAKE ANY MORE

WE'RE ALL NOISELESS THUNDER,
ALL THIS WILL PULL US UNDER.
AND THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER,
BUT I'D RATHER RUN WITH ANOTHER.
