Inertia Creeps

Album: Mezzanine (1998)
  • Recollect me darling, raise me to your lips
    Two undernourished egos, four rotating hips
    Hold on to me tightly, I'm a sliding scale
    Can't endure, then you can inhale clearly
    Out of body experience interferes
    And dreams of flying, I fit nearly
    Surrounds me, though I get lonely slowly

    Moving up slowly, inertia keeps
    She's moving up slowly, slowly
    Moving up slowly, inertia creeps
    Moving up slowly, she comes
    Moving up slowly, she comes
    Moving up slowly, inertia creeps
    Moving up slowly, she comes
    Moving up slowly, she comes, moving up slowly

    In my home no chrome as clear as
    See me now with my nearest dearest
    Been there when I'm over careering
    Room shifting is endearing
    Between us is our kitchen
    Would you found my irritant's itching
    Been here before
    Been here forever

    Moving up slowly, inertia keeps
    Moving up slowly, inertia creeps
    Moving up slowly, inertia keeps
    Moving up slowly, she comes
    Moving up slowly, moving up slowly
    She comes, moving up slowly
    Inertia creeps, moving up slowly

    She comes
    There be no sound in my eidertown
    Awake I lie in a morning's blue
    Room is still my antenna in you
    Nylon burns the bedspread with two
    Gravity's zero see me stall
    I bounce off walls lose my footing and fall
    It can be sweet though incomplete though
    And the frames will freeze
    See me on all four's
    It's been a long time

    She comes, she comes

    I want to x you, she comes
    I want to x you, she comes

    I caught your radio waves
    I caught your radio waves
    Will you take a string
    Say you string me along
    Say you string me along
    Say inertia creeps
    Inertia creeps and she comes
    Say she comes, say she comes
    Say she comes, say she comes Writer/s: ANDREW LEE ISAAC VOWLES, GRANTLEY MARSHALL, GRANTLEY EVAN MARSHALL, ROBERT DEL NAJA
