RUNNING TO STAND STILL

And so she woke up
Woke up from where she was lying still
Said I gotta do something about where we're going
Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain
Maybe run from the darkness in the night
Singing Ha la la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Sweet the sin
Bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers
But I only see one way out
You gotta cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice
You know I took the poison, from the poison stream
Then I floated out of here
Singing Ha la la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
She runs through the street
With her eyes painted red
Under black belly of cloud in the rain
In through a doorway she brings me
White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging
She is raging and the storm blows up in her eyes
She will suffer the needle chill
She is running to stand...still
