Savage Garden: A Thousand Words

A THOUSAND WORDS
/Savage Garden/

We stumble in a tangled web
Decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid
All hope of salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes

So take all this noise into your brain
And send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin
Call you up and then
(I'll say the words out loud)

[Chorus:]
You can resurrect a thousand words
To deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reasons
Why I don't need you anymore

Time manipulates your heart
Preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read
I may perplex, but I'm not blind

So take all this noise into your brain
And send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin
Call you up and then
(I'll say the words out loud)

[Chorus]

I'll say the words out loud
I'll say a thousand words or more

Manipulation, fabrication
Conversation, annihilation
I'll say a thousand words or more
Damnation, frustration
Elevation, procreation
I'll say a thousand words or more

[Chorus] [2x]
