So let’s play catch up
Does your memory need a backup?
Oh, please lay down, lay low
Don’t speak so slow

Living on the silence
Silence living on you
You go outside, (outside) outside, (outside) outside
Because there’s nothing else to do

Then you're there
And you want the warmth of a loving heart,
Of a hallway porch
There’s no turning round

Try to take it back what you said,
But the empty words won’t leave your empty head
And no one is gonna hear your wolf cry now

So cry outside, (outside) outside, (outside) outside

Why do you think of the feathers of the perfect dove
Tuberculosis, set the wings of love

Red shoes, black eyes
What a surprise

Hey, hey!

What do you know
Space smashing at your toes
Like a crocodile with eyes closed
Saying, get out, get out
You’re not from this land

Hailstones of memories frozen
Sorry for these helpless swarms around you
Spelling out your name in a new way

Whatever I have, it’s yours
Oh, I give in, I play by all the rules of outside

Bye bye, love
I think it’s gonna rain
