Lyrics from Under (Album)




UNDER (album)*





Moments


Days of sabotage and storms

Of reckless haze

Dreary lights in the calm

And remorse



We’re not prisoners of our actions

Nor our worst enemies

Only in the calm after

The onslaught



Give us shelter in moments of riot

Give us shelter in disarray


We’re not prisoners of our actions

Nor our worst enemies

Only in the calm after

The onslaught



Give us shelter in moments of riot

Give us shelter in disarray





*NightTime*



How did I get here I think I asked for it

Straight long road ahead three figures further and further

Every howl in my heart

Every stain in my head

Can’t they hear me scream

Running through the air

Around me worlds collide

This is the final hour





There’s a place in my mind they stop walking

Time stands still so I can catch up with them

Every howl in my heart

Every stain in my head

Can’t they hear me scream

Running through the air

Around me worlds collide

This is the final hour



Why are they trying to leave me behind

Time stands still so I can get them in my mind

Every howl in my heart

Every stain in my head

Can’t they hear me scream

Running through the air

Around me worlds collide

This is the final hour


Around me buildings falling

Running through the air


Every howl in my heart

Every stain in my head

Can’t they hear me scream

Running through the air

Around me worlds collide

This is the final hour

*Under*

It’s just a figment

Of your intelligence

I know what you were thinking under

We are what we think we are

I know what you were thinking under



Put me under

We are not the same

I promise you that

Can you promise me

That you won’t think it again

And I promise you that I’ll take everything back



If I could see myself through yours

I’d know what you were thinking under

But I’ll forgive myself

Cos we’re all the same

I’d know what you were thinking under

* *

Put me under

We are not the same

I promise you that

Can you promise me

That you won’t think it again

And I promise you that I’ll take everything back



We are not the same

I promise you that

Can you promise me

That you won’t think it again

And I promise you that I’ll take everything back



* *

*Held*

* *

We walk all alone

In this we suffer

We moan

Displaced debris

Collective doubt

Endless journey

To be unbound



And held

We walk all alone

In this we suffer

We moan

Displaced debris

Collective doubt

Endless journey

To be unbound



And held

*Beastie Queen*



It's wet outside I’ll sink right down

These murky mounds I’ll choke I’ll drown

Into endless clouds push my head right down

To the ends of the earth

In the dregs and the dirt



Into bottoms of my hidden voice

And rising oceans of my hidden poison

Right deep down to the ends of the earth

In the dregs and the dirt

I'll sink right down



Push my head down


Are you beautiful cos they told you so

Are you a beast or a beauty when you're on your own




It's cold outside I’ll sink right down

These murky mounds I’ll choke I’ll drown


Into bottoms of my hidden voice

And rising oceans of my hidden poison

Right deep down to the ends of the earth

In the dregs and the dirt

I'll sink right down


Push my head down


Are you beautiful cos they told you so

Are you a beast or a beauty when you're on your own


*All things pretty*

* *

See you shine precious

Through these pallid shades of grey

Come over here

And play with me



Here’s my heart, let’s swim

Through a bliss-coated kiss

We could be all things

Pretty and precious



We could run

We could run

We could be

We could be



We could run

We could be

We could be

Things pretty


We could run

Through eternity

We could run


I want a pallid shade of grey

Make precious go away

I throw my heart through your window

And drown myself in your bath

* *

We could run

We could be

We could be

Things pretty



We could run

Through eternity

* *



* *

* *


*Note to Self *



It hurts I've lost my mind

I'm a sorry sight tonight

It'll turn up soon

I can't think where I had it last time

I know this is not the last time

It'll turn up soon



The lights are coming through the blinds

I feel so sick tonight

It'll turn up soon

And the walls are closing in now

And i know that i'm being bad but

It'll be alright


This dirty feeling

I'm losing sense

I'm losing sight

How'd I get here tonight



It hurts I've lost my mind

I'm a sorry sight tonight

It'll turn up soon

I can't think where I had it last time

I know this is not the last time

It'll turn up soon

This dirty feeling

I'm losing sense

I'm losing sight

How'd I get here tonight

I'm almost gone tonight

This dirty feeling

On broken glass

I'm on my knees

How'd I get here tonight

I'm almost gone tonight












* *


*Shiny Tears*



I have some qualities and some included things

That have their own life

And those that I’ve made

And those that I dream


It’s such a hard life

Move my arms and move my legs

And you’ll pat my back

And take all my included things


No more



Not remembering anything before today

Or I could take them out

One at a time, one at a time

Shine with the qualities in the light

Shine with the qualities

And with shiny tears



No more

Shiny tears

Shiny tears are burning bright.





* *


*Little Steps*
* *

It feels like the first one of the last days coming round

Reflecting in our water

In our direction

Little steps off the ground



Now is the time to realise

And create what we want now

Reflecting in our water

It was a lie

It’s the first day in disguise



Eyes to eyes

Hand to hand

Give me yours

I’ll give you mine




Eyes to eyes

Hand to hand

Give me yours

And I’ll give you mine

Eyes to eyes

Hand to hand

Little steps off the ground


Eyes to eyes

Hand to hand

Give me yours

I’ll give you mine

Little steps off the ground

Give me yours

I’ll give you mine



*Gone and Buried*

* *

Underground

There’s a place

Lonely hearts sound

A quiet place



But I can’t bury you now

We don’t get lost somehow

I knew it from the first day

To be whole



I‘m sick of you everyday

I really need you to go away

Underground in a place that’s safe

Now disappear in time and space



Underground

There’s no place

For soul mates found

Hearts embraced


But I can’t bury you now

We don’t get lost somehow

I knew it from the first day

To be whole

* *

I‘m sick of you everyday

I really need you to go away

Underground in a place that’s safe

Now disappear in time and space

*
*

**Underground

There’s no place

For soul mates found

Hearts embraced

* *
