It's the sound of revolution in the bedroom
But we know there's nothing doing
Because we're hiding on the staircase
It's the sound of them standing in the kitchen
And she says, "Well, it's been bitching," and he says, "Yeah, you're a bitch and..."
It's the sound of your floating inhibition
When you're standing in the kitchen
And you know there's something missing
It's the sound of an emotional adventure
And she said it was forever, and he said it was forever
We say...

It's the sound of confusianity, confusianity, ah ha (x2)

It's the sound of revolution in the bedroom
But we know there's nothing doing
Because we're hiding on the staircase
It's the sound of them cursing their existence
Jungle drums beat in the bathroom
Separation's in the distance
It's the sound of contention around at our place
'Cause they're shaking in the hallway
And we know he's packed a suitcase
It's the sound of you scoping next to me
And as they tear themselves apart
You say it's better than TV
And I say...

It's the sound of confusianity, confusianity, ah ha (x2)

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Repeat to fade

    General Commentanyway, i think this song is pretty self-explanatory, confused kids watching their parents fight 'separations in the distance'...

    My Interpretation"Well, it's been bitching,"
    is actually
    "Well, you've been bitching,"

    I think this song is about two people , most likely the kids in the family, watching their parents arguing while they're hiding on the staircase. They can tell that separation is in the distance based on how their parents are arguing so much..
