Silence,
Silence speaks for you.
Silence speaks for you.
Diamonds,
Diamonds shine like you.
Diamonds shine like you.

Stop that, stop it, stop it as a panther.
Silence,
Silence speaks for you.

I want your blood
I want it in my hair.
I want your blood
I want it in my hair!

Shoot the water
Shoot the water
Shoot the water baby I've been found!
Shoot the water
Shoot the water
Shoot the water baby I've been found!

Shame,
Shame,
Shame is your name.
Shame is your name.
And desperate
Desperate things can't measure it.
Desperate things can't measure it.

Silence speaks for, silence speaks for
Silence speaks for you.

I want your blood
I want it in my hair.
I want your blood
I want it in my hair!

Shoot the water
Shoot the water
Shoot the water baby I've been found!
Shoot the water
Shoot the water
Shoot the water baby I've been found!

I've been found!
I've been found.

    Link(s)Apparently this isn't really supposed to have much or any meaning. From an interview:

    >TQ: There are some very ambiguous lyrics and song titles on the album. What does it mean to "shoot the water"?

    >KS: [Laughs] You know, my lyrics are incredibly ambiguous. I don't ever write lyrics about literal things, and often the way I write lyrics is just through singing vocals and going with it. I'll say a phrase and if I like the way it sounds I'll sing it for other people, and they'll have a completely different interpretation of what it means. And I kind of like that.

    >TQ: So do you see words as another note with the sound being more important than what they mean?

    >KS: Yeah, kind of. On my first recordings I didn't write lyrics. It was just a lot of gibberish. Then I realised that people really like listening to lyrics. I never listen to lyrics. To me it's 100 per cent about the vocal line and the melodies and it's all about finding words that fit into that. I look for words that have a vowel that fit a particular line, rather than words that prompt you to think about what I'm saying.
