Evrybody's talkin at once
Noone's list'nin
The words mite as well go unspoken
the furfurrah is never broken
monotone drones blurring into a hum
Block them out and carry on

And they never pause for breath
For to do so would mean death
But they're dyin anyway
Cos none hear what they say
And their words just disappear
Cos there's not an open ear

Listen to the rabble babble
Listen to the rabble babble
Watch them push and watch them scrabble
Listen to the rabble babble

And what can you do but shut them out
They're making you fear making you doubt
And what can you do but turn away
You can't hear a single word they say
And what can you do but go
Before they kill evrything you know

When you escape you find
that they're still there in your mind
cos even tho you've left
you can't hear now, you're deaf
and you're totally bereft
no sound.
silence surrounds.
silence drowns.
