Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can hear a statue
Wonder why they're so still
All able heels in a garden
Summer's water runs so quickly beside them!
Could it be it runs for them?

[Verse 2]
Dull to be, too staid to be, too bold or stunned
Too young and growing

[Hook]
Ten signs that read "silence"
Ten signs that read "silence"

[Verse 3]
Ten signs that read "silence"
Too cold to remember a face
Impossible to say
Ten signs that read "silence"
So bored in mammalian skin!
Impossible to say
Ten signs that read "silence"

[Verse 4]
In frozen green
What's alive?
Impossible to say

[Verse 1]
I can hear a statue
Wonder why they're so still
All able heels in a garden
Summer's water runs so quickly beside them!
Could it be it runs for them?

[Breakdown]
Could?
Summer's water runs so quickly
Ohhh
Dull to be, too staid to be

[Outro]
Over stone so still a statue's will to move
Like birds so stoically by the drain
Gardens carved of stone
The human whispers, so cold
A fountain ices over
A story over
A mouth says nothing
A few more seconds
Forever marble
Topiary moment waiting
Im waiting by the drain
See the ice never thawing
Their legs always still
Like hearts so stoically
By the drain see gardens carved of stone
The humans whispers, so cold
