Jim Carroll – I Don't Hear You lyrics

The blue light flashes
Billy feels it's motion
He says, "should I go and set it free? "
Black-eyed suzie
Picks up on the notion
She says, "put it in the lonely tree"
He says, "baby, we best sharpen our imagination."
He says, "it seems like the rest
Don't comprehend the situation. " I don't hear you
All the words that come and go
Don't say what I'm after
I don't hear you
Scream it through a microphone
Whisper in a deadly tone...
Don't hear you not you jane's a dancer
In quiet desperation
She says: "what I give I give for free"
Her twin sister
Feels the same sensation
But says, "you must buy it all from me..."
She says, "oh, I feel best
When the rest is all uncertain. "
She says, "thoughts in my breast
Just hang there like a burning curtain" I don't hear you
You don't matter, you don't care
I don't call that living
I don't hear you
What you say don't reach inside
It is like you're gagged and tied
I don't hear you he said, "go with the flow
Though the currents can bring danger"
"you didn't know
You were dancing with a desperate stranger" I don't hear you
I've been dealing with deaf ears
I don't need no laughter
I don't hear you
It ain't hard to analyze
I know what you're really after
I can't hear you
