The Sound Lyrics

Boom... The Static comes in slow
You can feel it grow
Our stream of conscience flows
Under the streets below

Ooooh

Ooooh

The rivers made of sound
Still running underground
Runs like a silent flood
We run as thick as blood

Can you hear it rise
Up from the ground
Can’t drown it out
Can you hear it now

This is the sound of a heartbeat
This is the sound from the discontented mouths
Of a holy nation
We are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me?
This is the sound of the desperation bound
By our own collision
We are the voice of breaking down

The static comes alive
Beneath the broken skies
John Perkins said it right
Love is the final fight
Oooh
Oooh
Let it rise above
Rise above
There is no song
Louder than love

This is the sound of a heartbeat
this is the sound from the discontented mouths
of a holy nation
we are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me?
This is the sound of the desperation bound
by our own collision
we are the voice of breaking down

Down

Down

Down

Let it rise above
Up from the ground
Can't drown it out
Can you hear it now

This is the sound of a heartbeat
This is the sound of the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation, we are the voice of breaking down

Can you hear me
This is the sound of the desperation bound
by our condition, we are the voice of breaking down

This is the sound
This is the sound

with all the terrible songs today focussed on hate, crime, and sin,it's really nice to have a band you can always rely on to have great music and meaningful lyrics.

If you dont know who the John Perkins is that they are talking about you need to look him up and read all his books. The Sound was written because John Perkins has pioneered The Sound.

This is the best song in the universe!!! When you hear it you just have to sing and get up and jump around like crazy...if you're in the privacy of your own bed room and happen to hear it on the radio
