I'm not in your house
But I'm not in your head
And you're not even listening
It's so hard to know
When you're not scared

Please don't help me
Please don't hate me

Stop putting me down
Cause I won't ever understand
(stop panicing)
(stop panicing)
I see it in your eyes
I see it in your mind
(stop panicing)
(stop panicing)

I'm trying not to speak
Cause you can't hear my voice
And nothing seems familiar here
On the other side
Of this town

Please don't help me
Please don't help me

Stop putting me down
Cause I won't ever understand
(stop panicing)
(stop panicing)
I see it in your eyes
I see it in your mind
(stop panicing)
(stop panicing)

Hold on
Hold on
(crushing walls with eager eyes)

If I see this all again
I'll try to take my time
I wonder how fast you can cry

All this time I thought you knew
All this time I thought you knew

    General CommentThe title was going to be 'out swimming in the flood' but a month before release the tsunami hit, so they changed it to Palanuiks Laughter, because of what he said in one of his books about canned laughter in sitcoms being recorded in the 1920's, so basically its dead people laughing. They thought the idea of dead laughter was pretty cool, personally I think it's a little morbid.
