you sit like a shadow inside a shadow, TV kills another soul you don't know why the phone never rings on Sundays the walls are alive from the light outside, it's like a film inside a film the city's gonna teach you the part one day and you shield your weakness, hey but they know your secret still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights the fears will be fading away in systems of silence I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white you live for this city, breeding its illusions with your hands against the wall another day has coached you into surrender you're bleeding its emotions, walking its desires like a dance you can't perform the city's gonna teach you the steps one day, yeah and we've lost our senses, hey but I'll take my chances still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights the fears will be fading away in systems of silence I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white and you freeze like they told you and you give yourself up and you reel spread-eagled (hey) still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights the fears will be fading away in systems of silence I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights the fears will be fading away in systems of silence I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white (systems of silence) oh yeah
