Woke up to the sound of feet
drumming on the pavement.
A thousand people in the street,
Standing in the spaces in between the rain.
Down and out. Down and out for so long.

After all the floodwalls broke
And the river overcame us,
After all the lights went out,
Orion gave us sanctuary.
Down and out. Down and out for so long.

I’ve been awake for so long.
The nights and the days - they’re so long.
And you’ve been asleep since the trees gave their leaves
to the ground.

Hey, do you think we could work something out?
You’ve got the faith and I’ve got the doubt.

I’ve been awake for so long.
The nights and the days - they’re so long.
And you’ve been asleep since the trees gave their leaves
to the ground.
