Simple Town

its a simple town; with a lonely sound
there's demons in the trees
come and rescue me
its a simple town; where the face becomes a veil
where the eyes become a jail;
for the settlers minds to pale
its just a simple town
where the secrets drown
before they get around
but tonight they have been found
with the words come shatter out your mouth
you made a thundercloud come and rain on me
under a simple sky in a simple town
you made a knife of sound, cut the air for me
cut the secrets free
its a simple town, just a simple town
but that simple choked
the life right out of me
cause simple things
aren't so simple anymore
death is easy to ignore
when its numbers on a screen
and that simple town
it likes a simple war; chooses red or blue
the rest can be ignored
while the secrets wait; on tortured lips
till they're moved to sing; with the passion of a kiss
and theres the words....
