Lyrics

Nobody sees what you go through
As you lie alone in your room
TV lays its hands across your brow
to cover up disease in your eyes
Everything most recently in the world
has to be told how much its loved
Has to be told

And every light in town is on
And all the constant details ring like rain
And the vulture and the hyena
They'll wish you well
Busy burning every tight second from hell

Today after work I rode to your house
Through the wind on my way
Stifled back your years
You said why do you want dreams
and all I want is sleep
Yeah why do you want dreams

And every light in town is on
And all the constant details ring like rain
And the vulture and the hyena
They'll wish you will
Busy burning every tight second from hell

Tried so hard but it's no good
Quietly descending into the hum
And I can't stop my mind from thinking
and I can't stop my heart from beating
and I can't help my soul from seeing
and I feel like I just come home
All the pills that the angels are on
