inside of a moment shines the wet unbelievable
beside every problem there's a rat
under siege and broken
with all the right drugs

in time, in depth, in present tense
i'm cold and awful, yes I know
uptight, intent
on making sense
we are who we are

instead of a motion there's a rest
unachievable
because in a cold wind there's a laugh
underneath, unspoken
in all the right tongues

in time, in depth, in present tense
i'm cold and awful, yes I know
uptight, intent
on making sense
we are who we are
in mind and breath
in my own head
i'm so unpopular, I know
in life and death
and second chance
we are who we are

and half along
were slaughtered in song
when left alone
we were unsafe
when all is done
to be honestly numb
is all I can be
lying here
awake

a mild psychosis holds my hand
underneath it all
a kind of ferocious old regret
on its knees and groping
for just the right gun

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite IME song, therfore my favourite song of all time. It is too beautiful to describe, the guitar solo is just gorgeous and the lyrics are amazing. Such a great band, come back IME!

    General CommentSimply one of my favourites, of IME, of music. Lyrically, musically, Soft Bomb Salad reeks of pure genius. That's what I think anyway :)
