"Sound of Screams" as written by John Henry Everard Hamson and Marcus Stephen Ratcliff....
If you want the sound of screams
Start turning in a forest to the draw of the lights
Running to the river at night, head ringing
Watching parents jumping over the sides
If you love the sound of screams
Bed jumping, him and her are full of passions tonight
Filling up your head with the slides
Blood rushing through your collar
'Til you run out of life

I can see gallows where the old trees were
And the lock where they would drown the bikes
I see the places that we owned because we found them all first
'Fore the generations came behind

Now you're telling me that I can't look back
I've got a life and all the plans are made
Oh well I think I'll take the time before you talk me 'round
To put a man o' war in the way

Sisters!

Looking for the days when the back streets took us
Jumping bridges in a fated car
I'm searching for them in the boredom of a shop-bought buzz that experimenting tore apart

By the field on the park I broke my arm
And when I did it made a precious sound
Like the parting of the lips before the jackals start to howl
Like they're doing right here and right now

If you want the sound of screams
Start turning in a forest to the draw of the lights
Running to the river at night, head ringing
Watching parents jumping over the sides
If you love the sound of screams
Past longing, better find a way to slow down the time
Oh sound of screams, still-beating hearts

It's not far enough
