Pleased to meet you, nice to see you
Welcome to the siren
Elegy has gone away and run off with the gun
Dirty word is on the loose and on found its way to your heart
There no dreams but bottle dreams but you don't play today

Even though we seemed to sleep we listen for the sirens
Whisper of a freedom gun held nothing out by that girl
Even though she's poor as dirt she walks just like a princess
She could be your sister don't you know

When the rains come, put on your best
Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
I'd surely die if i thought you'd be impressed
You think everybody is a ghost

When you find yourself a room in the tropic of cancer
You reach for the nearest rope and pulled on it so hard
Words they circle high and free and listen for your answer
Please don't give me liberty just give me what I want

Funny thing about my eyes they don't get any older
You were 5 and I was 6 and we were scared to dance
And if I saw your blood run out I'd laugh just like a soldier
You could be my sister don't you know

When the rains come, put on your best
Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
I'd surely die if I thought you'd be impressed
You just let me know and i swear ill do the rest

When the rains come, put on your best
Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
I'd surely die if I thought you'd be impressed
You think everybody is a ghost

    Pleased to meet you, nice to see you
    Welcome to the SILENCE
    Elegy has gone away and run off with the gun
    Dirty word is on the loose and found its way to your heart
    There's no dreams but battered dreams, but you don't play today

    And even though we seem to sleep we're listenin' for the sirens
    Whisper of a freedom gun held up out by that girl
    Even though she's poor as dirt she walks just like a princess
    She could be your sister don't you know

    When the rains come, put on your best
    Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
    I'd surely die if i thought you'd be impressed
    You think everybody is a ghost

    When you find yourself alone in the tropic of cancer
    You reach for the nearest rope and pulled on it so hard
    Words they circle high and free and listen for your answer
    Please don't give me liberty just give me what I want

    Funny thing about my eyes they don't get any older
    You were 5 and I was 6 and we were scared to dance
    And if I saw your blood run out I'd laugh just like a soldier
    You could be my sister don't you know

    When the rains come, put on your best
    Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
    I'd surely die if I thought you'd be impressed
    You just let me know and i swear ill do the rest

    When the rains come, put on your best
    Fashion in the truth for the lies in your chest
    I'd surely die if I thought you'd be impressed
    You think everybody is a ghost
