The Thirsty Blindfold

The Thirsty Blindfold

By Those Heartless Romantics

 

Through the world the wicked light

- The wicked light, oh such a wicked sight

Through the world the wicked light

The wicked light wanders merrily

 

Through the night the godly screams

- The godly screams, when gods scream

Through the night the godly screams

The godly screams, meander wearily

 

Alright, I'm trying to say

I'm devoid of animus

All that's left are bitter lies,

Bitter lies and a thirsty blindfold

 

Well once I was told

Eat some, then drink some more

But then leave some room

For anger, anger to take hold

 

God, but I've also been told

To look at the world around me

And be happy that there's still

Some beauty, some beauty left

 

I suppose it was meant

As a 'halt halt halt

Smell these roses please,

Stay still, stay still, do you feel that breeze?

 

 

Through the world the wicked light

- The wicked light, oh such a wicked sight

Through the world the wicked light

The wicked light wanders merrily

 

Through the night the godly screams

- The godly screams, when gods scream

Through the night the godly screams

The godly screams, meander wearily

 

Alright, I'm trying to say

That I'm some savage beast

But damnedly, damnedly,

I let your music soothe me

 

My heart went

Towards a little rent

In the fabric of this world

And so beauty, beauty left me

 

Gone too my soul,

Good riddance, dirty sickly coal

This body's revolution

Both agrees with and excites me

 

I suppose it was meant

As a little joke, 'ha ha ha,

Cease cease cease, no roses no more

To halt halt halt for'

 

Neither too the wind

Can I enjoy

There's no beauty left,

No beauty left in its' chill

 

Through the world your wicked light,

Your wicked light, your wicked light

Through the world your wicked light,

It scatters and it swirls

 

Through my world your godly screams,

Your godly screams, your godly screams

Through my world your godly screams

Liltingly unfurl
