Open Up Your Face
The Cat Empire Lyrics


While the traffic hums
When the madness comes
As the wire buzzes
While the weary run
Like a flower that reaches out its fingers to the rain
Like a bird that flies above the gutters and the graves

Open up your face
Open up your face
And move without a trace
You move without a trace

And the water's fine
As we drift away
Every single night
Every single day
Like a human cannonball who hears the match strike flame
Like a prisoner listening to the rumble of the train

Open up your face
Open up your face
And move without a trace
You move without a trace

Then I'll know you want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you...

And it's coming down
Tropical the rain
All the neighbours running out
On the street again
Like a cool wind blowing through desert after noon
Like the priest who kneels before his mary in the gloom

Open up your face
Open up your face
And move without a trace
You move without a trace

Then I'll know you want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you
You want me, I want you...
