    Nothing Left to Say

    I can’t see anybody who knows me,

    Tell me why I shouldn’t be scared,

    Only a bar and a bottle can help me,

    Give me something to lean on,

    And take me somewhere else,

    ‘cause I don’t believe anymore,

    Can’t you see that I’ve had enough?

    And I don’t believe anymore,

    There’s no-one looking down from above.

     

    Somebody give me an answer,

    Somebody say a prayer,

    Find me someone to believe in,

    Don’t just walk away,

    Is there anyone who can heal me?

    Does anyone know my name?

    Find me someone who can hear me,

    Now there’s nothing left to say.

     

    I try to talk but my cowardice beats me,

    Try to let out what’s locked in my head,

    I wanted to hide so that you wouldn’t see me,

    Helpless, weak and uncertain,

    Embarrassed by myself,

    I don’t believe anymore,

    Can’t you see that I’ve had enough?

    And I don’t believe anymore,

    Forsaken everyone I have loved.

     

    Somebody give me an answer,

    Somebody say a prayer,

    Find me someone to believe in,

    Don’t just walk away,

    Is there anyone who can heal me?

    Does anyone know my name?

    Find me someone who can hear me,

    Now there’s nothing left to say.

     

    ‘cause I’m hopeless, and I’m nothing,

    I can’t stand the sound when I hear my name,

    Am I broken? I’m defeated,

    I’m ashamed to say what I want to say,

    Am I falling? Am I jumping?

    Am I making sense? Do I sound insane?

    Can you hear me? Am I shouting?

    Should I save my breath now there’s nothing left to say?

     

    Somebody give me an answer,

    Somebody say a prayer,

    Find me someone to believe in,

    Don’t just walk away,

    Is there anyone who can heal me?

    Does anyone know my name?

    Find me someone who can hear me,

    Now there’s nothing left to say.

    Somebody

    If somebody, somewhere,

    Watches over me,

    Then somebody, somewhere,

    (had) Better prove to me,

    There’s more than sky and space and stars up above us,

    Until then I don’t think I need care,

    That somebody, somewhere,

    Watches over me.

     

    If somebody, somewhere,

    Has to walk with me,

    Beside a river, over a mountain, across the sea,

     

    Why on a starless night send eyeless to guide us,

    Where only the frail need to find,

    And when the light reveals the con to control us,

    They still praise the blind leading blind.

     

    So when you need to feel strong, call jesus,

    (he) Makes being pious and wrong, alright,

    Sheep don’t like being alone, they call Jesus,

    Cos he’s got you under his spell,

    What choice is heaven or hell,

    Be scared of that kind of love.

     

    Nobody, nowhere,

    Has to rescue me,

    Cos I’m not a slave, not a liar, not a victim, poor or diseased,

     

    He’s gonna rain his might down upon us,

    For finding the flaws in the lies,

    And (so) what makes a maker make unbelievers,

    To punish for owning their minds?

     

     So when you need to feel strong, call jesus,

    (he) Makes being pious and wrong, alright,

    Sheep don’t like being alone, they call Jesus,

    Cos he’s got you under his spell,

    What choice is heaven or hell,

    Be scared of that kind of love.

  • 03:38 Story Lyrics
    Moth to the Flame

    They watch her move, watch her move her body, hang off every move so elegantly sleazy, she’s got them lapping honey from the palm of her hand, then chokes them on the air that’s dirty, dank and heavy.

    She’s gonna wring them out, milking every penny, her faithful are devout, lonely sad and many, majestically she owns them with her poise and command, on every single level she will leave them empty.

    Like the dying find god, (promises of every kind of paradise), and like a moth to the flame (draw them in with guarantees to satisfy), they’re gonna get what they want (preying on another willing sacrifice), but they’ll still burn in the end (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven).

    Want and need, comfort, blame and answers, blissfully naive, follow any master, brazenly creating both supply and demand, while weakening the weak to feed their lust for power.

    Like the dying find god, (promises of every kind of paradise), and like the moth to the flame, (draws them in with guarantees to satisfy), they’re gonna get what they want, (preying on another willing sacrifice), but they’ll still burn in the end, (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven), they’re gonna get what they want, (keep just out of reach to bait and tantalise), but they’ll still die in the end (we’re all inventing heaven, everybody’s selling heaven).
