CODE OF SILENCE

Live 04 Oct 2003 version


There's a code of silence that we don't dare speak
There's a wall between us and a river's deep
We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
But there's a code of silence and it can't go on

Is the truth so elusive, so elusive you see
That it ain't enough baby, to bridge the distance between you and me
There's a list of grievance a 100 miles long
There's a code of silence and it can't go on

Well you walk with your eyes open
But your lips they remain sealed
While the vows we made are broken
Beneath the truth you need to reveal
Well I came to know now darlin'
Need to know what's going on
So come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

You walk with your eyes open
But your lips they remain sealed
While the vows we made are broken
Beneath the truth we need to reveal
I need to know now darlin'
Need to know what's going on
So come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

There's a code of silence that we don't dare speak
There's a wall between us and the river's deep
We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
But there's a code of silence
And it can't go on, (can't go on), can't go on
And it can't go on, and it can't go on, (can't go on), can't go on, (can't go on)
And it can't go on, (it can't go on), because it can't go on, (??? on), ???
Aha, aha
Aha, aha
Aha, aha
Aha, aha
