  • Now the sea eats the sky
    But they say it's a lie
    There's no birds left to fly
    We'll hide out

    Oh, the weather's against us
    Houses underground
    The flowers upside down
    In our dreams

    In the eye of the storm
    The land where you were born
    Try to make no sound
    We hide out

    'Cause they watch us in sleep
    And the language that we speak
    And the secrets that we keep
    In our dreams
    (In our dreams)
    (In our dreams)

    I said I'm so sorry
    To have kept you waiting 'round
    I wish I could've come up
    I could've shouted out loud
    But they got exits covered
    All the exits underground
    I wish I could figure it out
    But the world's upside down

    In a world upside down

    Oh, to dream this all off
    In the islands of the mind
    The places they can't find
    We'll hide out

    And the black sky came down
    And the cities underground
    The flowers upside down
    In our dreams

    Oh, to meet you again
    To pass you on the stairs
    To see you everywhere
    In my dreams

    'Cause they watch us in sleep
    And the language that we speak
    And the secrets that we keep
    To ourselves
    (In our dreams)
    (In our dreams)

    I said I'm so sorry
    To have kept you waiting 'round
    I wish I could've come up
    I could've shouted out loud
    But they got exits covered
    All the exits underground
    I wish I could figure it out
    But the world's upside down

    I said I'm so sorry
    That the world has fallen down
    I wish I could do something more
    I could shout it out loud
    They got exits covered
    All the exits underground
    I wish I could figure it out
    But the world's upside down

    (Upside down)
    Back to days of yore when we could be sure, all year, all summer Writer/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
