about

This song is created by a suggestion coming from a verse of Arcade Fire’s song “Suburban War”. It speaks of that melancholic feeling we have when we think about a person which once was very close to us but now is so far that seems lost in the deep space.

lyrics

Your Body is cold,
under a white sky
I see those black holes,
Into your eyes

Why…
I feel I sway in the time?
Still rollin’ away in the tide…
I can’t close my eyes

TIME
PASSES
BUT PAIN
REMAINS

WHAT I’VE SAW
WHAT I’VE HEARD
I WILL NEVER
WEE P AGAIN

‘CAUSE MY
ANGER
FEEDS
MY STR ENGTH

THERE’S NO JUSTICE
IT’S NOT FAIR
I HAVE TO TAKE IT
THE WAY IT IS


BUT YOUR
MEMORIES
FILL
MY HEAD

WHAT YOU’VE FOUGHT
ALL FOR NOTHING
I WILL NEVER
BE THE SAME

Slow, deep, the spiral sucks me in
Feeds delight of lust and greed
Warm, feel safe in this womb,
Inside your lie…

I
NEVER
WANTED TO BE
SOMEWHERE ELSE

NOW
DARKNESS
ALL AROUND AND
EMBRACE MYSELF

Close, we were but, the things that I endured with you
Froze it all, now we are distant stars
I know…can’t cross the space between

It’s sidereal,
It’s sidereal,
It’s inside your eyes,
It’s inside mine

I DIDN’T WANT TO GO
NOT THIS TIME AGAIN
I JUST WANTED TO SHARE
THIS LAST TIME BY YOUR SIDE

BUT ALL I HAVE SEEN
IS ALL YOUR SUFFERING
IT’S INSIDE YOUR EYES
IT’S INSIDE MINE

EVEN WITH YOUR STRENGTH
A PAIN YOU CANNOT HIDE
IT’S INSIDE YOUR EYES
IT’S INSIDE MINE
