lyrics

Hey, you caught me sleeping again, hey, hey,
Please keep it a secret from them, please, please

Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
They speak without mouths
One of us is in time, one of us is just out
Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
They’re here in your house
One of us is just in, one of us is just out

They won’t miss a little will they?
Hey? Hey?!

Don’t pretend you don’t know
You brought this on to yourself
One of us is in time, one of us is just out
Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
They speak without mouths
One of us is just in, one of us is just out

And the devil comes to town
And it seems at first that it’s all working out
But they say he’s in the detail
And it’s the small print that’ll catch you out

Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
Your words they won’t count
Never mind what you thought,
They’ll put words in your mouth
Pillow creeping with static
Embracing the crowd
Most of us are in time
One of us is just out

Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
They hunt without sound
Citizen one is in time, citizen two is just out
Speak don’t speak it don’t matter
Your words they won’t count
One of us is just in, one of us is just out

Hold my breath and hope they disappear
Hold my breath and pray for a citizeness

Strung up as a traitor
They’ll cut you down and pull you apart and turn you into a song
Better just to sit there,
Then you can say with hand on heart that you’ve done nothing wrong
