lyrics

East of here is nowhere and West is not my home
North is where the buzzards fly South to pick the bones
Up is blocked by brain cells depleted from ill use
Down is where the siren calls for me to be her muse

Don’t waive to the neighbours
Don’t glance or even smile
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They always try to pry
Don’t talk to the neighbours about our escape plans
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They’ll catch me if they can

Just keep the windows blackened from cold and judging eyes
They’re keeping notes and making calls
It’s not safe outside
Just sing me silly phrases to calm my twitching nerves
Tonight at dusk we venture out with pockets full of dirt

Don’t waive to the neighbours
Don’t glance or even smile
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They always try to pry
Don’t talk to the neighbours about our escape plans
Don’t waive to the neighbours

They are listening through the walls

Now they’ve heard this song they know that I’m a freak
I’m hiding from the outside ‘cause the inside sets me free
Let’s huddle by the fire of the floor boards we’ve torn up
Let’s toss a coin to decide if we’ve dug deep enough

Escape from the neighbours and counteract their plans
Escape from the neighbours and gain the upper the hand
Escape from the neighbours
We’ll make sure that we win
Escape from the neighbours
I’m so over this
