Desolation

Album: Resolution (2012)
  • Spoken sideways and indirect
    Without a single word left unchecked
    And by your own admission
    No one is ever above suspicion
    Defenses never to be let down
    The lies readily abound,
    Gaping jaw tightly wound.

    In your desolation
    Still searching for nowhere
    Desolation
    You're living in nowhere.

    Smoking gun, cause and effect
    Paradise lost, a beautiful wreck
    And to you I solemnly swear
    All I ever wanted was away from here
    All that for nothing,
    What a fucking waste of time
    I only took what was rightfully mine
    Seek and you shall find.

    In your desolation
    Still searching for nowhere
    Desolation
    You're living in nowhere.

    The dying man might take you with him
    Until then I'll split the difference
    All that for nothing,
    What a fucking waste of time.
    I'm gonna take what is rightfully mine.

    In your desolation
    Still searching for nowhere
    Desolation
    You're living in nowhere.

    All that for nothing,
    What a fucking waste of time
    All that for nothing,
    What a fucking waste of time
    The dying man might take you with him
    I swear to you I'll split the difference
    All that for nothing
    What a fucking waste of time.
