chris orrick – all along the shore lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
i vaguely remember when the winter broke
like waking up from a coma to shades of indigo
the ultraviolet in the light became unbearable
the ultraviolence of my life became my parable
the self-destruction burned a fire through my flesh
the craving like an infantile desire for the breast
elixir set upon the wires in my head
that told me only those that get admired are the dead
and my obsession was fanatical
i couldn’t entertain suggestions of sabbatical
to play the part i had to make the measures radical
no virtuosity to calm the inner animal
and social scientists will say that i’m irrational
self-preservation is to be a bit theatrical
because everyone is terminal
and the universe will never take you personal

[hook]
and at the very least he found some peace
while the world was busy counting sheep
the night became dawn
and he never awoke but his demons were gone

[verse 2]
i vaguely remember when the summer came
like waking up from a coma to have another name
to feel reborn and find your happiness restored
and realizing now that you will never find reward
the only proof of your existence in this life
is to p-ss along a star and view the absence of its light
you’re nothing more than a shadow to be observed
an astronomer who witnesses the dip upon the earth
i’m a measurement on instruments
an insignificant coincidence
but somehow that is magnificent
and darling that’s the core of our predicament
you find yourself an unwilling partic-p-nt
i see no reason we should rectify our differences
existing wasn’t meant as false imprisonment
enjoy the cognitive dissonance

[hook]
and at the very least he found some peace
while the world was busy counting sheep
the night became dawn
and he never awoke but his demons were gone

[outro]
now i’m gone till november
gone till november
the devil tried to k!ll me now i’m gone for forever
all along the shore they screamed out “no surrender!
if we’re gonna die then we all die together.”
gone till november
gone till november
the devil tried to k!ll me now i’m gone for forever
all along the shore they screamed out “no surrender!
if we’re gonna die then we all die together.”

i saw you standing there
saltwater in your hair
sungl-sses hide your eyes
we all know what’s inside
you don’t know my name
you don’t know my name
you don’t know my name
but i know your blood
all along
all along the shore
all along
all along the shore
all along the
all along the shore
all along
all along the shore

they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
they watched it
