only talking sense lyrics – finn brothers

there’a a wild thing in the woolshed
and it’s keeping me awake at night
a devil in the closet
and a feeling i’d prefer to hide
he is religion
he won’t hear me when i cry for help
he has a vision of me
but i am somebody else

we talk the pillow
there are times when i’m tied up to the fence
only talking sense

there’s a mirror lake before me
but i’m frozen when it’s time to jump
it’s like maybe i’m afraid of what i’ll find
when independence comes
you steel my shadow
you make my blood run dry

we are true only when we talk to the pillow
there are times when i’m tied up to the fence
only talking sense

did you suffer as a child
that’s why you want me to cry
you are afraid of me
that’s why you’re so unkind

you won’t deny it
when your child is tied up to the fence
and i’m only talking sense
lonely when we talk to the pillow
and your child is messed up in the head
i’m only talking sense
