"Strings And Drums" as written by and Darren Cordeux....
Turn your eyes to me
I am watching every move you make
What should I wear today on my sleeve?

Let's take a step and move away
Underground is where we'll stay
For a while

[Chorus]
I will mix my tongue with strings and drums
And give my soul away
Can you hear them come?
Strings and drums

You're my mystery
You are always at my fingertips
Without you I'm just bones and skin

I will lick your cuts and be your bruise
Until I fade from deepest blue
Into white

[Chorus]

I will change my words from nouns to verbs
And never be ashamed
Can you hear them come?
Strings and drums

I am writing myself clean
I am selling myself cheap
I am aching for a touch or a taste

And I'm aching, aching, aching now
I'm holding, holding, holding out
I'm calling, calling, calling out to you

[Chorus: x2]

I will change my words from nouns to verbs
And never be ashamed
Can you hear them come?
Strings and drums
Strings and drums

    General Commentmixing his tongue with strings and drums i think means that he's the voice in a band or something.. that's my stab in the dark

    tongue = voice, strings (guitars), drums (.....drums...)

    General CommentMakes me think of expressing yourself through music... mixing your tongue with strings and drums = making music, give your soul away= expressing yourself

    General Commentok... Im pretty sure this song is about scene music - parkway drive, bring me the horion ect ect. All that untalented c***. What should i ware on my SLEVE, nouns to verbs, if u put it into that context it makes perfect sence the whole song. i remember them live sayin stuff about scene music cuz they REALLY HATE IT. SAme with that song "spray on pants" watch the film clip you'll know wat i mean. but i really wish they would stop writing songs about those stupid music fads cuz it will just disapear over time :P
