She came into my bed
In the middle of the night
She said I'm tired of sleeping

The world was going mad
She wasn't seeing things quite right
She said the streets were bleeding

I remember thinking...

I think I might as well
Turn in for the night
I think somebody's trying to tell me something

So I gathered up my things
Walked back from the light
Wondering what that something, might, be

Ehhh, ehh, ehh, ehhhh, ehh...

She came into my bed
In the middle of the night
Said you must be mistaken

Wasn't sure what she just said
Wasn't sure if she could believe
I think somebody's trying to tell, me, something

Ehhh, ehh, ehh, ehhhh, ehh...

So how can we stay still and silent?
How can we stay still and silent?
How can we stay still and silent?
How can we stay still and silent?
How can we stay still and silent?
How can we stay still and silent now?

    My InterpretationI can't be sure, but it seems like the song is about how people see all of the problems in the world. It's difficult to see the big picture. The problems don't go away when we ignore them, they nag at us. (I think somebody's trying to tell me something) And yet we still stay still and silent.
