Standing in the wind and rain
I'm underneath your wheel tonight
Was underneath your heel tonight
This truth has brought us to our knees
Waiting here out in the street
A prisoner under these lights
Was holding fast not holding tight
Will time reward us some reprieve

And it's a lie we both believed (fall down)
Now you're lying there with me (fall down)

(Fall down) just lay your head down

Reading through the news today
I'm picturing your fading smile
I'm picturing your frozen eyes
Those dreaded words slip from your lips
Could we please just start again
Without this sense of pending dread
These thunderclouds lie overhead
Without this cage around my bed, love

It's a lie we both believed (fall down)
Now you're lying there with me (fall down)

(Fall down) just lay your head down

It's a lie we both believed (fall down)
Now you're lying here with me (fall down)
Can we try to make it clean (fall down)

It's a secret that's unspoken
T'was the cause of all your tears
We'd rip the night wide open
T'was the morning that we feared
There's glass upon this playground
There's cocaine in your church
Is there water in this desert
Is there water in this desert?

Fall down

    General CommentWow. This song is really something else. I've heard these guys compared to Coldplay, U2, and Radiohead before...but I feel like Clark's vocals are just plain better. There are very few singers who can actually send chills down my spine, but he's one of them. His ethereal voice just soars, and I love his falsetto. Not only does he have a beautiful voice, but he can convey so much emotion in his songs...something most other artists I hear these days fail to do. They write some pretty good lyrics too! This is one of those songs that can make you ache on the inside when you listen to it. Amazing.
