lyrics

This wall is thick and wide, press your ear and all you’ll hear is the quiet inside
We don’t talk to the neighbors; we live with these strangers on the other side

Do they feel this other home, it’s a strange sensation
Do they feel the absence of whole, like there’s something missing
Do they feel other lives seeping through, on a low vibration
Like a thought in the back of your mind, something tied to a stone and sinking

This house is split in half, there’s no line between us
Hallways in the dark, twist and turn then suddenly stop

We’re not alone but we’re not together, one hand can’t talk to the other
Just out of sight, hidden from view, I know you’re there but I can’t see you

Who erected this wall, who made this division
Who made two when there should only be one, why’d they make this decision
Why’d they leave this dead space at our side, this constant reminder
Something’s been lost you didn’t know you owned, something tied to a stone and sinking

This house is split in half, there’s no line between us
Hallways in the dark, twist and turn then suddenly stop
Maybe we can tear it down, find some way around it
A secret passage, a magic word, to open invisible doors

I look for you, for a passage through to the other side

Missing rooms and awkward angles, phantom spaces, twisted, tangled
The flow has been interrupted; this house has been corrupted by this arbitrary line

Do you feel this other home, it’s a strange sensation
Do you feel the absence of whole, like there’s something missing
Do you feel other lives seeping through, on a low vibration
Like a thought in the back of your mind, something tied to a stone and sinking

This house is split in half, there’s no line to lead us
Back to the start, back to the way it was before this wall went up
Maybe we can tear it down, find some way around it
A secret passage, a magic word, to open invisible doors

To the other side
