I have been listening, such an ancient song
My eyes are closed but I never sleep
I felt transparent and saw that lash on your eyes
You waved me twice on over to my seas

Chorus:
We found ourselves none in this city
you said our songs' cruel, it sounds hissy

brand food is ruling my sanity
Scream to your entrance
I felt simply in

Night lights are swayed on
I prayed for death

Circle and turn around, A closer sky

My name, feel, feel, and feel all tight
My name feel, feel, your love was right

I lip sync, have to pretend to conversation-sigh
you didn't know how, you've never even tried
attraction leeches, but never ever dies
We're leaving next week, behind your risky eyes

Chorus

Night lights are swayed on
I prayed for death

Circle and turn around, A closer sky

Chorus

Circle, circle and turn around
the little white lies won't make a sound
Circle and turn around, A closer sky

Chorus (to end)

    General CommentI think this song is about how life in a big city can come to be too much, at cartain times. The "we found ourselves none, in this city" line refers to privacy as the city is crowded with people, maybe as many as to feel suffocated, and maybe "pray for death."

    This is no way "bashing" life in a city, I live in one and it's just one bands' opinion.

    General CommentI have the impression Enon mainly sings about how hard it is to have a rolling conversation (if you know what i mean) not only this song, but too, as an example, Natural Disasters.
    Especially the couplet about "have to pretend to conversation-sigh" is very obvious.

    Gawd, I've been turning this track like twenty times today. I like it far too much.

    General Commenti think the line "we found ourselves none, in this city" just means they feel meaningless in the crowds and no one would notice or care if they're there or not.

    General Comment the lyrics as listed on this page of the band website - enon.tv/hocus/vt.none/… - are actually:

    i have been listening such an ancient song
    my eyes are closed but I am not asleep
    i felt transparent when I saw the lights in your eyes
    u waved me twice on a way to mercy

    we found ourselves numb in this city
    u said our song's cruel, it sounds hissy
    prelude is ruling my sanity
    screen to your entrance i walked simply in

    Night lights are swayed on, gray water
    circle and turned around across sad skies

    my name, free will and we all die
    my name, free will your lie was right

    a lip sync how u pretend our conversation sigh
    u didn't know how u never even try
    attraction we chase could never ever die
    but i'm leaving next week behind your wisky eyes

    we found ourselves numb in this city
    u said our song's cruel, it sounds hissy

    circle circle and turn around
    the little white lies won't make a sound
    circle circle and turn around across sad skies

    we found ourselves numb in this city
    u said our song's cruel, it sounds hissy
