Two plastic cups, a piece of string
And still I can’t hear your voice for anything
It was the loudest shouting, I’d never heard us fight
Now it’s tinnitus on my pillow, in my ears tonight

Speak a little louder, speak a little clearer
If you speak at all
I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you
Through these thin walls

A monkey on a metal frame
Wires in my hands
Waiting for a voice to speak
In words I understand
When all there is is rattling in hollow ribs
Of paperclips and sand

Make me a bride or hail me a king
And still you won’t find a heart in a man of tin
The grass that was greener grew up to be a maze
And we’re all stuck in here, we have no voice
We have no flag to raise

Come a little closer, draw a little nearer
If you’re there at all
I can’t see you, I can’t see you
Through these thin walls

A monkey on a metal frame
Wires in my hands
Waiting for a voice to speak
In words I understand
When all there is is rattling in hollow ribs
Of paperclips and sand

When all there is is rattling in hollow ribs
Of paperclips and sand

I’m tired today
I’m tired today
Know love don’t put it away
Know love don’t put it away

I’ve known love…
