Death in Midsummer

Album: Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? (2019)
  • Come on down from that cloud
    And cast your fears aside

    You're all here and there
    And there's nothing inside

    May God's will be done
    In these poisoned hills

    And let the devil be cast out on his tail

    There was a voice that called me
    There was a light that burned me

    Come on and let's be sure
    Let's not pave the way

    Your friends have died
    And their lives, they just fade away

    Some worked the hills
    Some worked in factories
    Worked their lives away

    And in time
    You will see your own life fade away

    There was no time to go back
    There was no time to go back
    (Come on)

    They were in hills
    They were in factories
    They are in graves now

    They were in debt to themselves
    And what is it made of now?

    I go around and feel how it fades
    I walk around and I see what's fading
    Walk around and you'll see how it fades
    Walk around and you'll see what's faded Writer/s: Bradford Cox
