Shakespear's Sister – Run Silent lyrics

Think about what you're doing baby
Think about faith
Think of the blood that's running
'Round in your veins
You're soft and naked
You're young and strong
My heartbeat races
As you aim the gun
And these prison walls
Can't hold me anymore
Run silent, run deep
You've taken over me
And even when I sleep
Run silent, run deep
When you talk of reconstruction
Do you want it to last
Don't talk of revolution
As a thing of the past
I need a hero are you on my side?
Or just a temple for my sacrifice
And these prison walls
Will have to let me go
Run silent, run deep
You've taken over me
And even when I sleep
Run silent, run deep
From my soul to your fears
From my lips to your ears
One heartbeat
In this world tonight
And in these prison walls
I see an open door
Run silent, run deep
You've taken over me
And even when I sleep
Run silent, run deep
