Better

I have to say, in this case Kenny Chesney describes how I feel about Noise sometimes better than I can. This especially holds true if I’m irritable in a mood episode and I’m not the one choosing the noise.

Here are the lyrics:

Wrecking balls, downtown construction

Bottles breaking, jukebox buzzing

Cardboard sign says the lord is coming

Tick, tick, tock

Rumors turn the mills back home

Parking lot kids with the speakers blown

We didn’t turn it on but we can’t turn it off, off, off

Sometimes I wonder how did we get here

Seems like all we ever hear is

Noise

Yeah we scream, yeah we shout ’til we don’t have a voice

In the streets, in the crowds, it ain’t nothing but noise

Drowning out all the dreams of this Tennessee boy

Just tryna be heard in all this noise

Twenty-four hour television, get so loud that no one listens

Sex and money and politicians talk, talk, talk

But there really ain’t no conversation

Ain’t nothing left to the imagination

Trapped in our phones and we can’t make it stop, stop

This noise

Yeah we scream, yeah we shout ’til we don’t have a voice

In the streets, in the crowds, it ain’t nothing but noise

Drowning out all the dreams of this Tennessee boy

Just tryna be heard in all this noise

Every room, every house, every shade of noise

All the floors, all the walls, they all shake with noise

We can’t sleep, we can’t think, can’t escape the noise

We can’t take the noise, so we just make

Noise

Yeah we scream, yeah we shout ’til we don’t have a voice

In the streets, in the crowds, it ain’t nothing but noise

Drowning out all the dreams of this Tennessee boy

Just tryna be heard in all this noise

All this noise

Can’t take the noise

Can’t take the noise

Can’t stand the noise

Can’t take the noise
