All We Did Was Talk Talk
Trapped me at the bottom
whose sides are a burning hell
Where words echo like a ringing bell
while I'm caged inside a prisoner's cell
But words mean nothing more than -
And I can’t hope to make an escape
Not from this pathetic place
No way anything can erase
All the words you said...
and said again and again.
And where exactly is the escape?
Where do the elusive answers lie?
Salvation in that last goodbye
Saves us all from the need to try...
And now I find finally at last
I think I can bury the past
The one that never would come my way....
If anyone comes back to that living hell
and feels the need to break the spell
You're really going to have to shout
I'm gone - found my way out
Ready to see what this life's about.
You're looking down into
nothing but an empty hole -
one that has lost a soul.
It's funny that I didn’t even have to run
Just no more talking – all the talking's done.
You might find me talking to the sun -
For me, I don't want to talk talk.
Cause all we did was talk talk.
Now, I don't even want to listen.
