Noises from Your FaceDom Bouffard & Helga Davies
00:00 / 03:33

words are just noises

from a hole in your face

like aaargh,  ohhh and blah

why should i listen to the noises you're making?

your aaah is my oh

my blah is your ahh.

you think a noise means this

and i say it means that

if it means both

it must mean nothing

if it can mean anything

it must mean nothing

why say nothing?

nothing. nothing. nothing. nothing.

save your energy

save your time

save my ears

repeat

repeat is just an instruction

repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat

fade fade fade fade fade fade (fading)

keep fading while saying

fade fade fade fade fade 

dot dot dot dot dot dot 

i say this but i think that

are you thinking this? or that?

i say this but i think that

are you thinking this? or that?

 

here is the chorus

it should be catchy

i'll just repeat it

here is the chorus

it should be catchy

i'll just repeat it

here is the chorus

it should be catchy

i'll just repeat it

here is the chorus

it should be catchy

i'll just repeat it

 

i can see sound

dripping from a hole in your face

sound is coming from my face too

it means shut up

shut up shut up shut up shut up 

shut up shut up shut up shut up 

i've heard sounds like yours before

and nothing good happened

i've heard sounds like yours before

and i wish i'd stopped them sooner

i don't like your sounds

i don't like your sounds

i will take your noise and make it mine

ooh will be ahh

k will be t  (note: the phonetic sounds of the letters)

p will be r

s will be d

k will be t  

p will be r

s will be d

k will be t  

p will be r

s will be d
