lyrics

I saw you peeking through the bushes at me
and when you thought I could see
I saw you leave

I found the lock undone on my diary
But then thought fortunately
I knew you'd see.

Cause we're a long way from home.
We are 300 million people afloat.
We got holes in our throats
from screaming in each other's ears but we're speaking in code
That no one knows.

I saw you speed away in black SUV
and then stood there wondering
how much you'd seen.

The kids are setting fire to the streets.
and all we read we don't know who to believe.

Cause we're a long way from those.
We are 300 million people afloat.
We got holes in our throats
from screaming each other's ears but we're speaking in code
That no one knows.

(I saw you peeking through the bushes at me.
The kids are setting fire to the streets.
And you were speaking like the devil through me
While we were hand in hand and glued to the screen.
And we were screaming only just out of reach
While they were singing only just out of key.
Yeah we're believing everything that we read,
But we're not reading anything that we see.)
