Words (Moginie, Blasko)

Words.... from outer space
Words.... from the mouths of babes
The mouth moves faster
Than the mind can chase

I’d better keep watch on my heart
I said too much right from the start
I’d better keep it under, keep it under, keep it undergound

Words ...like double Dutch
Words... that lack the human touch
Wish I could recall the ones
When they said too much

I’d better keep them in my heart
So better off to hide them and start
To keep them buried under, buried under, buried undergound

I will follow your empire to its end
I will
I will

I’d better keep a constant heart
I’d better go back to the start
