Accident Without Emergency

Album: Opposites (2013)
  • The light leaves me terrified
    I hate when the darkness dies
    Don't you ever want to be brave?
    It seems that we feel the same way

    I would never leave you crawling
    Even on the bathroom floor
    It can be a lonely place,
    Have you ever been there before?
    No need to run away, no need to run away

    Once you feel love, you'll taste the pain
    Sent from above, you can't complain

    Can I raise my head this morning?
    My mind's needing cauterized
    I'm in the shallow end drowning, it's a soup of flies
    Or am I on a wall? Or am I on a wall?

    Girl I should have told you but I've never been brave
    Standing side by side, we'll take this whole place

    The light leaves me terrified
    I hate when the darkness dies
    Don't you ever want to be brave?
    It seems that we feel the same way

    If this is an accident then where's the hurt?
    At least someone here should be covered in blood

    Tell me how to recognize you
    Now that you're compromised
    My skin's covered in holes,
    Can you please take a look inside?
    No need to hesitate, no need to hesitate

    Girl I should have told you but I've never been brave
    Standing side by side, we'll take this whole place

    The light leaves me terrified
    I hate when the darkness dies
    Don't you ever want to be brave?
    It seems that we feel the same way

    I'll take a good look at myself
    It's you I want and no one else
    Don't you ever want to take sides?
    I guess that's family suicide

    If this is a concert then where's the crowd?
    Let's sing it out and sing it proudWriter/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
