Ring the [Incomprehensible], let it in, say softly begin
If it feels like the first time, don't let it in
'Cause it wanders by
Like something that could have been

If I were to write this song
That could penetrate your ears
Would it calm your trembling soul?
Would it ease your every fear?

Can we go back to
The place where we all used to see through
Every thing blinding us?
Now you don't understand anything anymore

You shiver at the signs
You're afraid to show that
You're always so willing to know

Could the song solve all our problems?
Could it have the strength to heal?
Would it cripple and destroy
And leave nothing unrevealed?

And then might it uproot every lie
And force us all to cower
Beneath this tremendous weight
In the wake of all its power?

Can we go back to
The place where we all used to see through
Every thing blinding us?
Now you don't understand anything anymore

You shiver at the signs
You're afraid to show that
You're always so willing to know

Oh, did you know, did you know
Did you know better?
Don't you know, don't you know
Don't you know better?
Don't you know, don't you know
Don't you know better?

Don't you know that
You shiver at the signs?
You're afraid to show that
You're always so willing to know

If I were to write the song
That could somehow change the world
Would it be, I can't surrender
I can fight to the death?

Would it give something to live for?
Would it give our final breath?
Would it be a lulling opera, sweet as a child's kiss?
Would it sound like all the others?
Would it sound something like this?
