Solway Firth lyrics

Today, up on this hill,
I’m counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm,
a look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth

They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of YOU

HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

While I was learning to live,
we all were living a lie-
I guess you got what you wanted
So I will settle for a slaughterhouse
soaked in blood and betrayal

It’s always somebody else…
somebody else was me-
you want the real smile?
Or the one I used to practice,
not to feel like a failure?

I don’t need you to do it for me
I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me
I just want to feel like any other man

I won’t show you the whole story
I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away…
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

I’m not ahead of my time-
I just drew the first breath-
If I’m alive tomorrow
I will alleviate the pressure…
by cutting you out of me

I found my bottom line-
dead on the front lines-
I know I’ll never go home
So set fire to your ships and
past regrets and be free

I don’t need you to do it for me
I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me
I just want to feel like any other man

I won’t show you the whole story
I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away…
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

While I was learning to live,
you taught me how to die-
I guess I got what I wanted
Another needle in the back through
purified scarification

It wasn’t somebody else-
you f**king did it to me.
You want a real smile?
I haven’t smiled in years.
