Performance

Album: Performance (2018)
  • That flashing light in a tunnel
    You're in decay, in a change
    Though it's not quite what you wanted it's obvious it could be rearranged

    Hot like a crack in the concrete
    If only we needed it the same way
    I suppose it's another performance

    Never mind, you're only alone if your eyes are open
    Never mind, you'll be sorry for a day
    Never mind, some words are better left unspoken
    Never mind, you'll be better off this way

    Wearing your cap like a bluebird
    Watched you get carried away
    Mmm I got too drunk to notice how obviously I need you to stay

    We were contained by logic
    If only it didn't cause so much pain
    I suppose this is all a performance

    Never mind, you're only alone if your eyes are open
    Never mind, you'll be sorry for a day
    Never mind, some words are better left unspoken
    Never mind, you'll be better off this way

    That flashing light in a tunnel
    You're in decay, in a change
    Though it's not quite what you wanted it's obvious it could be rearranged
    Hot like a crack in the concrete
    If only we needed it the same way
    I suppose it's another performance
    I suppose it's another
