In an ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Ringing like a bell
As if I had a choice, oh well!

Left in the morning
While you were fast asleep
Into an ocean of violence
A world of empty streets

You've got your reasons
And me I've got mine
But all the reasons I gave
Were just lies to buy myself some time

In an ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Now who here among us
Still believes in choice?
Not I!

No way of knowing
What any man will do
An ocean of violence
Between me and you

You've got your reasons
And me I've got mine
But all the reasons I gave
Were just lies to buy myself some time

I'm gonna work it out
Cause time wont work it out
I'm gonna work it out
Gonna work it out
Cause time wont work it our for you
I'm gonna work it on out
Cause time wont work it out for you
I'm gonna work it out
Cause time wont work it out
I'm gonna work it all out out
Cause time wont work it out
I'm gonna work it all out
