lyrics

no more lying now; I will go to sleep
lock the words up in your mouth
trapped behind your teeth

your tongue crackles like the leaves beneath my feet
your eyes are black holes
they take but don't release

and oh, I creak like floorboards under
all the weight of you
and when you walk around I mutter
all that we've been through

you weave lies just like the braids in schoolgirl's hair
you keep them going til there's
nothing else left there

[chorus]

I waited years just for my chance to say a word
now I am thunder
I will rumble 'til I'm heard

[chorus]
