Lyrics

Scream and crash a familiar sound,
Empty beer bottles hit the ground,
Echoes in these rooms tonight
Window's open I don't feel right.
It's a weird thing with you and me,
The more we know the less we see,
Clouds gather it smells like rain
Jealous sunshine so easy to train.

Breaking glass, breaking glass
Everyone's living so loud and fast.
Breaking glass, breaking glass,
Silence is golden if you give it a chance.

Fourth estate and the farm was sold.
Don't ask why just do what you're told.
Scratch my back and I'll itch yours
Less milk and honey and more locked doors.
If you want something real look inside,
'Cause noise is noise and the colors blind
Too easy to show all we want to see,
Louder than bombs and sold for free.

Breaking glass, breaking glass
Everyone's living so loud and fast.
Breaking glass, breaking glass,
Silence is golden if you give it a chance.

Keeps us coming back for more,
Attention span short and easy to bore.
It's not worth living your life that way,
The years go by and who's to say,
That your ideas aren't as good as theirs
And the time you wasted unawares?
In the end you know the best
If you trust the beat inside your chest.

Breaking glass, breaking glass
Everyone's living so loud and fast.
Breaking glass, breaking glass,
Silence is golden if you give it a chance.

Breaking glass, breaking glass
Everyone's living so loud and fast.
Breaking glass, breaking glass,
Silence is golden if you give it a chance.
