V1 (Intro: Part 2)
The static comes in slow 
You can feel it grow 
Our stream of conscience flows 
Under the streets below 

V1: Interlude (Don't Palm Mute)
Whoa, whoa-o, whoa, whoa-o 

The rivers made of sound 
Still running underground 
Runs like a silent flood 
We run as thick as blood 

Pre-Chorus 1
    Can you hear it rise?  Up from the ground

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Down!  Can you hear me? 
This is the sound of the desperation bound 
By our own collision 
We are the voice of breaking down 

Interlude: Same as Intro: Part 2 (Don't Palm Mute)

V2 (Same as V1)
The static comes alive 
Beneath the broken skies 
John Perkins said it right 
Love is the final fight 

Pre-Chorus 2
Let it rise above 
Rise above 
There is no song 
Louder than love 

Chorus

Bridge (Can't hear the solo well enough -- update to come when album version is released)

Pre-Chorus 2

Outro (Intro: Part 2 -- No Palm Mute/Double time!)
