Oh, won't you keep it down?
I want a quiet life
I'm tired of the sound
I'm tired of the light
Oh, won't you keep it down?
It's playing on my health
You're talking far too loud
I want to hear myself

I haven't slept,
The night is cold
I tried to slow my breath
But every time
I stopped myself
I came too close to death
I tried my best to wake you up
But you were far too deep
And even though you cried last night
It's me who cannot sleep

Oh, won't you keep it down?
I want a quiet life
I'm tired of the sound
I'm tired of the light
Oh, won't you keep it down?
It's weighing on my health
You're talking far too loud
I cannot hear myself

I'm getting old
I lose the seams
I hear the crack of bone
And every girl who halves my age
Is one I'll never phone
I loved the noise when I was young
I carved it like a clay
But Jesus Christ, I cannot think
I do not know the day
