The Tension Lyrics Meanings

The Tension Lyrics

I am a foreigner
I don't know my name in this tongue
I'm glad to be alive here, I'd say
But it's hard to say
I have my family near
We dance together all day
That is foreign here, I heard
Those are foreign words
My father took me out to observe

Eyes pressed in
Pretending they see no life
Stumbling away from every living thing

Nothing withheld
Until one breaks the other's shell
It makes me want to run back to my mother's arms

Feel the tension
Every single place I've been
It sings and somehow everybody listens

We can't read this contradiction
Let us in, let us in Lord
Oh to be a learned citizen
Oh to be, oh to understand

But I am a foreigner
Maybe it's all for nought
I hate to be lost all day
But I will today
Once again
Keep me in
Slow success
