Shut Up

Album: Silence Yourself (2013)
  • Come on in
    I have a bar set up, how about a drink?
    No thanks
    Oh come on loosen up a little, have a drink
    No thank you, I don't want one
    Sit down
    Should we call room service, you're not hungry?
    No, thanks
    How old are you really?
    I'm trying to be patient, how old are you?
    I'm 65, how old are you?

    Too many to convince
    Too many to hire
    And nothing you ever own
    The world's a dead sorry hole
    And I'm cold, and I'm cold
    And I'm cold, and I'm stubborn
    I'm sick and keep it open wide
    And speaking words to the blind

    Speaking words to the blind
    Speaking words, oh

    And the soul of the pure
    And the eyes of the lover
    And the one who truly saw your soul
    And the one who truly saw your soul

    I'm the one, who truly saw your soul
    I'm the one, who truly saw your soul

    And if you tell me to shut up
    I would tell you to shut it
    Did you tell me to shut up?
    Oh if you tell me to shut it
    I'll shut it now

    Young, just born
    Fragile and trembling soul
    You hold it to the light
    That pulls down the moon at night
    You kept on holding it
    Oh, you kept on holding it
    It was a dangerous thing to do
    But you did it when no one knew
    When the eyes were closed
    And the people asleep

    Not an animal
    Not a human
    Not a soul
    Not a soul

    And if you tell me to shut up
    I would tell you to shut it
    Did you tell me to shut up?
    Oh if you tell me to shut it
    I'll shut it now

    I am a breaker of ocean
    Leaden like a bullet to the sun
    I am a breaker of ocean
    Leaden like a bullet to the sun, to the sun, to the sun
    To the sun, to the sun, to the sun, to the sun, to the sun, to the sun
    I am a breaker of ocean
    Leaden like a bullet to the sun
    I am a breaker of ocean
    Leaden like a bullet to the sun, to the sun, to the sun
    To the sun, to the sun, to the sun, to the sun, to the sun Writer/s: Ayse Hassan, Camille Berthomier, Fay Milton, Gemma Thompson
