Living End – Maitland Street lyrics

I hear the sirens? Oh no

Coming to remind me? To go
Silence is golden? I know
Until the silence - is known

And the plans were carried on

We were the victims all along
Is it true did the world stop turning

When the rain came down

When the rain came down on

Maitland Street

Would we drown in the sorrow
Of another defeat?

Will we be remembered if we

Don't get beat?

Got your head in the clouds
Your feet on the ground

Will we be remembered?

Will we be remembered?

Or lost in history

Of Maitland Street

Searchin? For somewhere to go

Looking for an echo

We found a place that we called home

But it was empty yeah

Yeah there was nobody there

And the clouds began to break

We tried to run but it was too late

Now it's done and you gotta move on

'Cause it's never gonna be the same

Doesn't anybody know?

What happened all those years ago?

Doesn't anybody know?

Is it true did the world stop turning

When the rain came down
