Written by Vonda Shepard and Gerard McMahon

I seem to walk on ice
Some things make me think twice
When I get that resistance
Like having freedom with my hands tied

I've censored what's inside way too long
I can't live so black and white
Somebody listen
Somebody say what's on your mind

I've got the wheels of the reckless
I'm gonna scream on the edges

Wake up the house start the clock work
Turn on the lights anybody home
Break all the glass on my windows
Wake up the house so I'm not alone
Disturb this neighborhood
Maybe it'll do some good
You know what I'm missing
When everybody's asleep at night

Somebody's got to tlak
Might as well be my job yeah
Maybe somebody's listening
You know I've censored this heart too long

I've got the wheels of the restless
I'm gonna scream on the edges

Wake up the house start the clock work
Turn on all the lights anybody home
Break all the glass on my windows
Wake up the house so I'm not alone

I can't live so black and white
You know what I'm missing
Something's making me think twice
Is anybody listening?

(Repeat Chorus)
