lyrics

Well we slept on through the sunrise
Heard the ticking hands
Eating through our best-laid plans
With no language to deny us
No words to come between
The desert and the dream

With curtains drawn
On the circling dawn
Child of the morning
I am dumb

And the madmen who keep the dollar afloat
Make every vote a donkey vote
So we sink into the midday hum
Under the awning and the gum

The servants of state
In an empty debate
With me and my date
Feeling dumb

Tongue-tied to the wind

And if the truth is naked
Then meaning is a ghost
A rich but unattractive host
So let's get all the tried and tired tidings to strip away
To what they already say

Oh, and I still don't know how you had me at hello
And I don't ever wanna know
Cause I can't see
What you're doing with me
No, thankfully
I am dumb

Tongue-tied to the wind
