Grace for Drowning Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rousseau
Deform to Form a Star  
Disc 1  
1. Grace for Drowning (2:00)
Instrumental
2. Sectarian (7:41)
Instrumental
3. Deform to Form a Star (7:51)
Oh once in a while
I learn how to smile
Horses shadows and rain on stone

No god here I'm sure
This must be the cure
For all this carrion and aimless drift

Retreat from the begging
And invites to the wedding
Revelation means nothing here

In time we forget our need to devour
All the stories of tortured souls

Crawl into your arms
Become the night forever
Coiled and close, the moment froze
Deform to form a star
Here on earth together
I got time to share and a well used stare

This smile isn't pure
Certain or sure
Cold precision was never there

The way we uncoil
Return to the soil
Flaws are everything and chaos reigns
4. No Part of Me (5:45)
I feel worn out
There's no point drinking
When life slows right down
And holds you up above the water line
So sleep will never come

One last time then
Before I lose you
You don't have to pretend
I know that love for you was just security
There's no part of me in you
5. Postcard (4:28)
I think it's time that I got off the kitchen floor
But is there really any point at all?
Waking up this morning felt the same
Better sleep while life is so mundane

It could have been yesterday that I locked the door
I blocked the windows up so I can't be sure
Now I haven't even got the will to eat
I'm lame and self-obsessed, that I will concede

I'd like to light a cigarette but I cannot
The lighter's dead and the gas has been cut off

I'm the one you always seem to read about
The fire inside my eyes has long gone out
There's nothing left for me to say or do
'cause all that matters disappeared when I lost you...
6. Raider Prelude (2:23)
Instrumental
7. Remainder the Black Dog (9:27)
Scintilla falling behind
Did you arrive at the place that you came from?
A cultivator of dread
The paranoia took root in your cold heart

Neurotic up with the dawn
Prescription pills to ignore, the map is useless
If you would dare to dissolve
You'd get the thing that you craved for so long now
 
Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye  
Disc 2  
1. Belle de jour (3:00)
Instrumental
2. Index (4:49)
I'm a collector, I collect anything I find
I never throw anything away that's mine
And I'd collect you too if I was given half a chance
And trap you under the glass and add my autograph

I catalog, I preserve, and I index
And file you into my collectible Rolodex
I keep the rubbish what other people give away
And keep all of the pieces in a metal tray

Hoard - collect - file - index
Catalog - preserve - amass - index

I'm a collector and I've always been misunderstood
I like the things that people always seem to overlook
I gather up and catalog it in a book I wrote
There's so much now that I forget if I don't make a note

If I collected you and put you in a little cage
I could take you out and study you every day
It isn't easy being me, it's kind of lonely work
My obligation to collecting is my only thirst
3. Track One (4:16)
Fall of winter, fall of all sundowns
The treachery of the coldness of your smile
Violator, among the trees they hide
Perambulator, fade into the night

Buzz killers stride, fall into the tide headlong
Twin sister stars, bouncing off cars are headstrong
4. Raider II (23:21)
A fist will make you understand intention
To raise alarm is underhanded, so I cut off the phone
I bind you up with tape and catch some TV
It's getting late, the shadows in the street are watching us

Check for fibers in the gaps between the teeth, the floorboards
Check the fingerprints, go through the trash
Maybe I just wanted some attention
Compulsion seeks its own way in rejection of the light
Every story needs to have an ending
We might as well give up all this pretending and clear the air

The night is crawling closer to the action
Your mouth is driving me into distraction, you talk too much
Well, every story needs to have an ending
We might as well give up all this pretending and clear the air

A plague inside your home, I'm raider
Defiling all you own, raider
A cat among the crows, I'm raider
The butcher and his prose, I'm raider
5. Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye (8:01)
That's something that you're laughing at me
And I hope you know what it is that you're laughing about
'cause it won't be long now 'til they're reeling you in
The same situation, the same disappointment you bring
So I hope you're happy with the impression you made
Deep in denial, like you planned it this way
But you're lost to me, like dust I have cleared from my eye
Your words have no meaning, so I stare up into the sky

Breathe in now... breathe out now...
