lyrics

in the middle of something that I don't understand
reddish, softly murmured to your neighbour's ear
for no one to hear.

to listen to what is slowly running
dripping on a slope that's made out of the inside
that's made out of

So you can't say
what is hidden
what is unknown
to the shallowness
of your being here
to the shallowness
of your being here

it must stop
the blabbering scribble
that says nothing
and nothing is here
but the red of the shoes
the quiet of the crowd
what is it worth to you?
the red of the shoes
the quiet of the crowd

Really the sound of it surprises you
to the point where you wonder
how did I end up here
Really the sound of it amazes you
For a march is about to start
and you sound determined

to go the whole way through
this reddish and pulsing path
that crosses so many roads
where the water's running

They're swollen with questions

and how you wish you'd break more often that once a year.
how are you occupying your time?
are you waiting for tears to flow
comparing them with travellers
following a steep slope

so you disgust yourself with emptyness
and this is it for now
the red of the shoes
the quiet of the crowd
what is it worth to you?
the red of the shoes
the quiet of the crowd

and shall you never return
