Blackfield IV Lyrics


Pills

There's a pill for every hour
These days you don't have to feel
Deducting all your fears
And make them disappear

It's like driving with no lights tonight
They will get you home
They will run the show
There's an exit for the circus life
They'll lead you to the door
And cover all your holes
That go too deep

Springtime

Anyway I'll let you walk away
No revenge, no heavy tears to shed
Not a big role in my life you played
That's OK, I will just sit and wait
I don't mind if someone else will light your way
There's no rain and I'm ready for the springtime

I won't burn all the sweet letters you sent
I remember all the jokes you made
Everything is falling into place
Anyway don't forget the nights we spent
We stayed awake all night till the sunlight came
Singing birds now on their way for the springtime

XRay

Yesterday we rolled down the streets like rats
There was smoke all around me,
But we looked pretty happy
To damage this town one more time

We're so fashionable, glittering eyes
The jury suspect it's not art,
But we're like blind painters
We puke on our paper
I'm waiting to see what comes out

Confusion is dripping so fast
On those with the suits and the ties
Soon they'll ask maybe
Me and my lady
We are the X-ray of life

Sense Of Insanity

Mother, have you seen the world today?
They're shooting all over town
I'm a sinner
I'm not the one you prayed for
Doesn't matter, I'm still alive

I was walking on the clouds
You've got to be brave if you want to have crowds
Dreams guide me to the mountain
I was standing like a priest with his ancient Bible
I was preaching the sense of insanity

Brothers, let's get out to the streets
Sure there's something you want to say
They won't hear you like they never did
All your heroes ran away

I was walking on the clouds
You've got to be brave if you want to have crowds
Dreams guide me to the mountain
I was standing like a priest with his ancient Bible
I was preaching the sense of insanity

Dreams guide me to the mountain
I was standing like a priest with his ancient Bible
I was preaching the sense of insanity

Firefly

Firefly, I'm flying in circles til I die
I light my way within the lines
I don't know where I am

Firefly, on my tail there's dying light
I don't know how long it will last
Before I'll meet the ground

Moonshine over the mountain
No promised land, no true love waits
Speed up and then we slow down
The clocks in my skin are winding down

Firefly, I'm glowing in the dark tonight
Those tiny wings won't get me far
I'm pretty where I am

Firefly, those funny sparkles in the sky
You've got no purpose while you are
Guided by the wind

The Only Fool Is Me

It's late and I'm wondering why
I'm sitting here and watching the world spin around
What does it mean?
Tomorrow a new day begins
I know that no one loves for free
The only fool is me

She never came through my door
It was a dream
I'm sure that I saw her before
Or it was my tears
Someday our faces will cross
Too bad that no one loves for free
The only fool is me

Jupiter

Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We werenít scared to fail and fall

Now all I can do is to stand
And watch those new boys in the game
How theyíre laughing and having fun
Making rules under the sun

I wonít win her pretty eyes tonight
Itís been so long since I played it right
Iíll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before sheíll even notice Iím around

They used to call me the city queen,
But now Godís playing his jokes on me
Iím all alone, far from the city
Iíve got no room, no time for dreams

I wonít win her pretty eyes tonight
Itís been so long since I played it right
Iíll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before sheíll even notice Iím around

Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We had no time to fail and fall

I wonít win her pretty eyes tonight
Itís been so long since I played it right
Iíll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before sheíll even notice Iím around

Once we were young, we had no plans
What simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all
We weren't scared to fail and fall

Kissed By The Devil

I think it's over now
We always knew
The butterflies have gone
I get so cruel

Some sorry lover
Kissed the devil
And was speaking of you
It's easy to be lost
And to be found by you

I think it's over now
We always knew
The butterflies have flown
You get so cruel

Give me back now, give me back what I was giving to you
You left me at the wrong scene and rather blue

When she goes away I think of her
But when she goes away I think of her

I think it's over now
We always knew
The butterflies have gone
We get so cruel

Some sorry lover
Kissed the devil
And was speaking of you
It's easy to be lost
And to be found by you

Lost Souls

I wish I had some more time
In this life
If I could turn the clock back to the start

To hug you, dear in my arms
That would restore my slow heart
Hey, let's stick around together
Then run away
There's a special place where all the lost souls

I heard you pray for more time by my side,
But no one cares about us beside us
We made it to here for our love
From this decade with precious love vowed

To hug you, dear in my arms
That will restore my sore heart
Hey, let's stick around together
Then run away
There's a special place where all the lost souls

Faking

Time never waited
He is not your best friend
Well, you've got to chase it

Inside her eyes the casino waits
Would you play now?
She always wins, necklace made of lies
Faking
It seems you held the wrong cards tonight
Faking
Faking

Pain is like a secret
You won't tell, you've got to keep it
When you're down and wasted

Inside her eyes the casino waits
Would you play now?
She always wins, necklace made of lies
Faking
It seems you held the wrong cards tonight
Faking
Faking

Inside her eyes the casino waits
Would you play now?
She always wins, necklace made of lies
Faking
It seems you held the wrong cards tonight
Faking
Faking

After The Rain

Rain, after the rain there's the sun
There's the sun after the rain
