A Whisper in the Background

I try to keep it down
but these walls are like paper
I can hear a TV through the floor
I hear every sound
from my lovely neighbors
but I don't want to hear them
anymore

All the while my head's been spinning
brought me to my knees
here I am with my hands on my head
I beg for quiet, please

but it's always there
just a whisper in the background
I can't turn my head down
I can't turn my head down
I still hear it
I still hear it

Oh, the rain
it falls to my head on a sound wave
and turns my skylight into a drum
I beat-beat-beat my way through a night
of no sleep
I can't keep
trying to ride the gain
until the night fades into day

All the while my head's been spinning
brought me to my knees
here I am with my hands on my head
I beg for quiet, please

but it's always there
just a whisper in the background
I can't turn my head down
I can't turn my head down
I still hear it
I still hear it
I still hear it
I still hear it
