lyrics

It's colder than water
And thicker than ice
If I could lose feeling
That would be nice

You've got Marilyn Monroe's eyes
And Helen Keller's ear drums
"Beware of Silence" is on your fence
On your doormat "Unwelcome"

My name's a dead language
A word you forgot how to use
I guess there's no use in keeping dead flowers in a living room

If the rain was my apology
And every word a drop
Would you let it get lost in the ground
Or collect it in pots
And would it water your garden
Or flood your house
Would you use an umbrella
Or would you dance around

I'm the city of Pompeii
You're the volcano that blew
I guess there's no use in keeping dead flowers in a living room
