Lying here and all I want is to beat my face against this wall
Motionless you drift away, and I’m left wondering
“If it means so little to us why do they fall down you like rain?”
Your hand in mine
I felt explosions for the first time

I realised words are just words
Heartbeats singing us to sleep
Chasing a dream, but some things are never meant to be
The air is filled with a cold uncertainty

Your beautiful but you don’t mean a thing

Why do I even care?

As I take this first breath
Glittering blackness paints me a brand new colour
Forget ‘us’ this is mine, with eyes like diamonds shine
Swallow me whole sugar
Swallow me whole

    General CommentI think Carpathians two releases (the self-titled EP and the full-length "Nothing to Lose") tend to have songs where the meaning are interconnected. Sorta like a concept album, but not quite. Notice here Marty sings about 'explosions for the first time'. THe next song on NTL is called Explosions.

    These songs are clearly about a relationship, but other ppl can say more about this...

    General Commentthe lines in the book are exerpts from Bret Easton Elis novels, not stories.. which is where the song gets its title
