What did you say?
I can't hear anything with these headphones on.
I like to play my music just as loud as it goes.
It empties my mind and helps me with my time.
It distracts me from the sound in my heart.
Can you make that sound go away?
It keeps knock, knock, knocking all day.
I think there's somebody there,
Standing at the door.
What did you say?
I just can't concentrate with the TV on.
I like to sit here close to the screen, if you know what I mean.
All those people on there, they seem like good friends to me.
They distract me from the sound in my heart.
Chorus
I don't know what they want, but they want something,
Well what ever it is, I don't really want to know.
Oh Oh Oh Oh...
What did you say?
I don't know what you're trying to tell me.
But I can't stop to listen now, cause I gotta go.
I'm meeting some people, we're going out tonight.
To distract ourselves from the sound of our hearts.

    General CommentThis part ----> I like to sit here close to the screen, if you know what I mean.
    All those people on there, they seem like good friends to me.

    ...reminds me of Fahrenheit 451. The walls are the tv screen and his wife is obsessed with her "friends" that she watches everyday. just a thought. Duvall is amazing. So are the Smoking Popes.

    General CommentIt's a play on the "I stand at the door and knock..." verse from the Bible. From somewhere in Revelation I think. I guess from his point of view, he's pointing out how people would do anything to avoid religion and "distract themselves from the sound in their heart". ie. distract themsleves from God knocking on the door and not letting Him in to their lives.
