SOUNDS TO ME
LIKE THERE'S SOUNDS
FLOATING FREE,
SOUNDS YOU CANNOT SEE,
LIKE A MESSAGE
SOMEONE'S TAPPING OUT
ON T.N.T.
TAPPING,
CLAPPING,
RAPPING,
THE SOUND OF FINGERS
SNAPPING,
TAPPING,
SNAPPING,
KNOCKING,
RAPPING,
A LITTLE SOUND
GROWING,
COMING,
GOING,
ALL THE TIME
KNOWING
THAT IT'S GETTING STRONGER
WAIT A LITTLE LONGER
IT'LL GET A LITTLE STRONGER.

LATE AT NIGHT
SAFE BEHIND
YOUR LOCKED DOOR,
TRY AND FEEL,
TRY AND FEEL
THE SPIRIT.
LATE AT NIGHT,
LISTEN AT THE WINDOW.
MAYBE YOU CAN HEAR IT,
BUT IT'S GETTING NEARER,
NEARER EVERY DAY.

IT'S FAR OFF,
BUT GETTING NEARER,
NEARER EVERY DAY.
SO SOFT,
BUT GETTING
CLEARER,
CLEARER EVERY DAY.
LATE AT NIGHT
SAFELY IN YOUR BED,
TRY AND FEEL THE SPIRIT.
LATE AT NIGHT,
LISTEN OUT YOUR WINDOW,
MAYBE YOU CAN HEAR IT.

IT'S A RAP SOUND,
A ROCK SOUND,
A CLICK SOUND,
A CLOCK SOUND,
A SWEET SOUND,
A STREET SOUND,
A STAMPING HAND
AND FEET SOUND,
A TRASH SOUND,
A SMASH SOUND,
A WHISTLE
AND A CLASH SOUND,
A WOOD AGAINST
A HEAD SOUND,
A SOUND
THAT COULD BE THUNDER,
BUT VERY FAR AWAY.

IT'S FAR OFF,
BUT GETTING NEARER,
NEARER EVERY DAY.
SO SOFT,
BUT GETTING CLEARER,
CLEARER EVERY DAY.
LATE AT NIGHT
SAFELY IN YOUR BED,
TRY AND FEEL THE SPIRIT.
LATE AT NIGHT,
LISTEN OUT YOUR WINDOW,
MAYBE YOU CAN HEAR IT.

SOUNDS.
SOUNDS TO ME
LIKE THERE'S SOUNDS
FLOATING FREE,
SOUNDS YOU CANNOT SEE,
LIKE A MESSAGE
SOMEONE'S TAPPING OUT
ON T.N.T.
T.N.T.
SOON YOU'LL SEE.
