I'm putting your patience to the test
I'm putting your body on the line, for less
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice
Slippin' your body through the street
I'm sending your girlfriends to the night, for cheap
Wearing a jacket made of meat
Sending a letter waved with walls so sweet
And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey
Life in the shade
A violent cloud
In Nassau, usa
Running for the rights
Playthings in the sky
I'm just tryin' to find
A mountain I can climb

I'm putting your patience to the test
I'm putting your body on the line, for less
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice
And now you've seen that...

Waltz on the grey
Life in the shade
A violent cloud
In Nassau, usa
Born on the rise
Circles in the skies
I'm just tryin' to find
A mountain I can climb

Tell us, are you gonna tell us?
Why do we feel so jealous?
Why do we feel so silent?
Why is it always silent?
(I didn't want to hurt you baby, I didn't want you to suffer, and everybody is singing)
Why are you waiting? Behind my door...

Life turns to dust
And when it turns to rust
Gossip is a truth
A little before a life you took
And why do you look surprised?
Ever since I'm in the skies
I'm just tryin' to find
Enough space for you and I
