Lyrics

 

last night

the rhythm inside

the way that you cried

i almost died

i love you

 

backstage

a primitive age

my decadent rage

I'm so afraid

i hurt you

 

tonguetied

with hesitant pride

the will is defied

i'll never lie

i hate you

 

heartsore

on the killing floor

the beautiful war

you wanted more

i'll take you

 

and we'll float away

on the rivers of the sun

 

heartsick

the battle so thick

burning down the wick

a misery trick

I'll feed you

 

rockstar

you never went far

the mystery you are

your broken guitar

I need you

 

last call

you're breaking the wall

the bottom will fall

and then we'll all

be torn through

 

last night

the rhythm inside

the way that you cried

i almost died

i love you

 

(From the album Multitudes)
