The people upstairs
Seem to have come from nowhere
I don't know what to think
The little Italian lady
She screams in my face
I don't know what to feel

She's speaking in tongues
I don't know what she sees
But it seems to have something
To do with me
It's anybody's guess as to
What it all means
A cloud of confusion hangs over me

The people upstairs
They don't go anywhere
They hardly even answer their door
I don't recognize
The spirits they praise
But it seems to be all that they do

And it frightens me
And it keeps me up at night
They don't use lamps
They only have candlelight
I still don't know
About what they pray
I just don't know what to say

The people upstairs
I don't want 'em there
But at the same time, I'd like to find out
What are they hiding?
And what brought them here?
Up in the room above mine

And she screams in my face
The language, I can't understand
And then the older lady
Quickly grabs her hand
And they go back upstairs
Shut themselves away from the world
A cloud of confusion still hangs over me
