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, ah, la, la, la, de day
Ah, la, la, la, de day, ah, 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, de day
Ha, la, la, la, de day, ha, la, la, de day

Ooh, ooh, ooh

She runs through the streets
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's running to stand still

HEWSON, EVANS, MULLEN, CLAYTON
