We're caught in a trap like prisoners in a cage
Growing old from hate not from age
The runnin' love we had is down to crawl
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

You go out with someone else while I'm out with someone too
Yet we come back to prison when we're through
Why don't we just stay out? But we still can climb the wall
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

Are we afraid that we'll wind up along?
Is this the tide that keeps us hanging on?
Why don't we just stay out while we still can climb the wall?
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all

Are we afraid that we'll wind up along?
Is this the tide that keeps us hanging on?
Why don't we just stay out while we still can climb the wall?
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all
We hardly ever talk and we never touch at all, at all
