Now solitude of will has held you still against that wall Dividing soul from self, you cannot help but to dissolve Back down
[Chorus] Don't come crying for help when the fire surrounds you When desperation calls you will obey Don't you follow the mass to an endless grave You've cut that vital main, now Lay your fear on the line and wake up Lifeless years, unholy tears Throw your panic aside and let go Pain will bring to light your fears
The gravity of death is on your breath, it dwells inside Hold fast to your distraction, feed ambivalence your time
Hold your breath, retain your silence I don't buy your self-reliant soul

The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
