lyrics

There’s something amiss
has it really come to this
everything we thought was permanent was fleeting
the people go by
god knows their heart’s as big as mine
would I be relieved if I could just discern some meaning
if I could just move
there’d be nothing to lose

but we fall to the floor
stuck in this crowded hour we don’t know what it’s for
we rattle the cages just to make the lions roar
and bolt for the door
in the nick of time
afraid of what we might find

I know that look on your face
as if these years had been a maze
and every path you wandered down has led to nothing
you soldier on with your act
but you’re too weary now for that
tired clinging to the high ground you’re always seizing
if you could escape
walk away without pain

but we fall to the floor
stuck in this crowded hour we don’t know what it’s for
we rattle the cages just to make the lions roar
and bolt for the door
in the nick of time
afraid of what we might find

If we could let go
it’d be different I know
but we clamp it down
before the blood begins to flow
if we could just move
we’d have nothing to lose

but we fall to the floor
stuck in this crowded hour we don’t know what it’s for
we rattle the cages just to make the lions roar
and bolt for the door
in the nick of time
afraid of what we might find
