Lyrics

All these unspoken words
Are piling up like carrion
This blinds us like a fog
We can't drive with the windows down
The stench is sly and fetid
Denying us the freedom of the road
We're dying to be heard
And what's killing us is these unspoken words

You shape your lips like vowels
I click my tongue sometimes
You'd think it would be easy
For hearts like yours and mine
The silence is a lazy swim
In nothing but the shallows of a pool
Not speaking is absurd
When what's killing us is these unspoken words

Things can get nasty
Nightmares or dreams
What's the worst could happen
If we both come clean

Someday we'll find our voices
Sing yours and I'll sing mine
We'll tell our tragic stories
Line by lucid line
The fog will clear its vapours
We'll come up smelling roses in the spring
We are two wounded birds
But what's killing us is these unspoken words

We are two wounded birds
What's killing us is these unspoken words
