DrugCrazed Lyr Add: Silence (Michael Marra) (5) Lyr Add: SILENCE (Michael Marra) 06 Nov 13


I listened to Coope Boyes and Simpson's "As If..." album yesterday and this one struck me as a nice song. I like it more now I've listened to the lyrics and realised I have no idea what the hell is going on.

There is no such thing as silence
In the heavens or the well
Some protozoa make semaphore
His metaphor to tell

There are hydrocarbon radicals
That take the place of one or more
Of the three hydrogen atoms
And they cheer each other on

A moamat(?) amoeba
Please don't ever change
Tomorrow you'll be gorgeous
And this well will be unchanged

Strange fruit and wishful thinking
Bring me women and bring me men

Well the heavens can be noisy too
There's a din up there as well
If you had them for your neighbours
You'd think they came from hell

Due to isotopes of thorium
And alpha types of rain
You can make out the rules of shinty
Up and down the milky way

Strange fruit and wishful thinking
Bring me women and bring me men

But when humans try the silence thing
They pull it inside out
They find their lips can't fashion
What their heart appears to shouts

In panic and confusion
Or a quiet word of prayer
If they didn't have to human be
The silence would be there

Strange fruit and wishful thinking
Bring me women and bring me men

Strange fruit and wishful thinking
Bring me women and bring me men
