Scream at the Clouds

Lyrics

V1

The phone sat idle for eight whole days,

As we waited for the villain to come out into the sunshine.

It’s our time; planted from a seed we climb,

And still we struggle trying to remember

How did they start this curse?

You’ve got a lot of belief in words.

If your children grow up to break your laws,

Will you tell them they were your only flaws?

Will you show them how to be saints and gods?

I don’t believe it’s impossible. It’s not impossible.

 

CH

So we scream at the clouds and their silence is all we have.

We dare ask, but can’t accept that as an answer.

Oh, my love, I’ll try not to be blind, but I’m so human.

 

V2

We walked on taller into the fog,

Where they shout out your name, but you long forgot.

And we cringe when his majesty calls his dogs,

But we’re sure of the silence and don’t get caught.

I know I don’t need anyone.

I am the only daughters and only sons.

I am a million colors and one resolve.

I am hands wide open and grateful palms.

And a heart for catching the stars that fall.

I am one voice offering countless calls.

 

CH

So we scream at the clouds and their silence is all we have.

We dare ask, but can’t accept that as an answer.

Oh, my love, I cannot pretend that I know what you’re looking for,

But I won’t waste this time.
