Lyrics

playFor you my dear sister
playHolding onto me forever
playDisco dancing with the rapists
playYour only crime is silence

playCan't work at this anymore
playCan't move I want to stay at home
playTied up to all these crutches
playNever far from your hands

playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playCan't speak
playCan't think
playWon't talk
playWon't walk

playDoctors tells me that I'm cynical
playI tell them that it must be chemical
playSo what am I doing girl
playCry into my drink I disappear

playEyes for teeth grating over me
playBring down the shadows of my mind
playSleep and breathe under our sheets
playInhale the anxiety
playIn - between
playIn - between
playIn - between
playIn - between

playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me

playThrough September under the weather

playIn - between
playIn - between
playIn - between
playIn - between

playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me
playTsunami tsunami
playCame washing over me

playTake the GI's I will have the spies

meaningMeaning

"Tsunami" is dedicated to Jean and Jennifer Gibbons, known as "The Silent Twins".
They were two sisters from West Wales who stopped talking to the outside world at the age of eight and only communicated with each other in secret language. They committed several robberies, were imprisoned together and from their cells wrote a book of poetry, September Poems. When Sister Jean died, Jennifer was able to communicate again, freed from silence.
