lyrics

De-spare


You check your compartments for stowaways
And head out to the sea where it’s so easy
To disappear
You place your defenses on red alert
Batten down the hatches and disguise your intentions
Prepare for a war, that you induce and then ignore

Back in this world you have no chance for surviving
You kick and you scream but no one is listening

You contrive confusion and calculate
Rush in headlong to where failures lay in wait
You missed your chance to ruin all my plans

Back in this world you have no chance for surviving
You kick and you scream but no one is listening

I can’t sleep for fear of dreams that you’ll invade
Dawn lights the night ablaze with a brutal morning in silver flames
That just won’t wait
So I fire bullets into your skin
That won’t yield
That won’t pierce
That won’t let me in
You bluff my call, then you stutter, blush and stall

Back in this world you have no chance for surviving
You kick and you scream but no one is listening

And me
I’m still awake
No chance for sleep
It’s much too late
