I remember desert places
Shadowless and cold
Where heaven looks down
On this empty hole
Lovers here to taste the ruins
Dark and obscene
But all I want is you
In my sunken dreams

I remember all the places
I remember when we met
You alone and graceless
Me covered in sweat
We hid among the empty aisles
Shuddered 'neath the scene
And your lips reached out
In my sunken dreams

She finished the move, presenting blue waves of doubt
Natured now and blown apart
This fury and cruel matriarch
She leads me to the edge of my own frail being
And my own mortality in question
The sanctity pushed me on and off to the depths of my own cowardly demise
And in this decay I find another day, will I burn at the stake
That I know into the decay another day, will I burn at the stake
To have a chance to obey
And will I start again
Where I first began
With a flat fluid embrace

And I remember when I tried to find a voice
In the distorted German channels of my own mind
And that seemed so long ago, that was so long ago

And I remember when I tried to find her voice
In the distorted German channels of my own mind
And that seemed long ago, that was so long ago

    Lyric Correction"Looking for that fleeting embrace.

    And I remember when I tried to find a voice
    In the distorted, drowning channels of my own mind."

    The song is called "Sunken Dreams," and Conrad Keely, who wrote the song, is of Irish and Thai descent.

    General CommentSomeone with more motivation than me should figure out what the spoken interlude and the repeated line at the end say and post it.

    General Commentsunken dreams could be dreams never realized. so this song is probably about a failed relationship, like most songs. this one sounds a lot like the cure. i love the choir at the end. maybe if someone posted the full lyrics, someone other than me or the person above me, then it would be clearer to interpret.

    General CommentSo this song prolly the best off of that album, and here is the spoken part.
    She finished the move resending blew waves of doubt
    Natured now and blown apart
    This fury and cruel matriarch
    She leads me to the edge of my own frail being
    And my own mortality in question
    And the sanctity pushed me on and off to the depths of my own cowardly demise
    And in this decay I find another day will I burn out the stake
    That I know into the decay another day will I burn out the stake
    To have a chance to obey
    And will I start again
    Where I first began
    With a flat fluid embrace

    And I remember when I tried to find her voice
    In the distorted German channels of my own mind
    And that seemed long ago, that was so long ago

    General Commentthis song is like wanting someone as a lover for the wrong reasons....out of fear and vane...but..those same emotions lead you to build bridges at the same time. they dont sustain those bridges. they drive people away. i dont know why his mind is speaking german....maybe he's struggling to understand himself
