Black Lodge 03:30
Seek what you cannot find What lingers in your mind Seek what you cannot know What you could not let go It’s knowing It knows Shake what you cannot hide Release it and let die And break what you cannot hold Release it and let go Tonight, we’ll ride Tonight, we’ll step inside I will take you there I will take you there
Walking through tainted memories Alive in dying history Just like when I was 19 I saw my future turn from me So I fled the scene I don’t look back, but the break was clean Awake in distant feelings Asleep through explained meanings The sound is ringing around me But I covered up my eyes to see This city breathes I still lose sleep I still lose sleep Something’s missing, something hidden I turn toward you, but I could not listen A fading story, that echoes for me A voice is calling to whisper softly that you’re alone tonight Someone’s turning Someone’s turning Was my future not worth learning?
Blue Nile 03:33
Wake to the sound That’s filling the air Someone is singing Something is there To trigger those thoughts You think of that smile You walk to the window, You’re hoping you’ll find Some truth that bends this lie: What you see is not there What you feel is not fair What you’re hearing is wrong What you have is not gone Sharpen your teeth For what is in store You taste the restraint As you ask her for more You wait for her call You wait for her song These comforts collect As you’re drifting along Into blue beyond and on
I want mine All the time And you play along ‘cause you could But have you thought about if you should Speak your mind And I’ll change mine Something cold, something true, something mean I’ll regret, you’ll forget, we’ll stay clean But you can you see this can’t be what we need It’s lust, it’s hate, it’s nothing in between In between the silence and the dark is a scream The season’s in, and I would gladly play your prey again
Spinning 03:39
I was turning, I was falling to you Caught in this trap That was intended for two I was looking, I was looking for you In our midnight In your blackening cocoon Which you were spinning for two So if we fall asleep will you wake with me? If I turn around will I shake this tender ground From all our spinning? If you are gone, then I’m just as happy Same as I was before you had said to me That you had needed someone
(brutalism) 03:02
MORE 04:10
Waiting your turn to fight in the war You wade through the pain While you pray for the cure When all of the signs warn you what you walk towards Just swallow your pill And think of it no more Asleep in her arms you forget what’s in store You’re safe from that stage Where they’ll ask you for more You’re closer to death, but as brave and as pure And your body will shake But your heart will want more Feel their faces getting redder than before Left with nothing just an echo on the floor Waiting up to find what nightmares are in store Waking up to find them only wanting more They wanted more They wanted more
