ichiban – the ether lyrics

Loading...

[intro]
come and walk with me
come and talk with me

yeah

[verse 1]
he met her on the train she said lilly was the name
supple frame really one thing really on his brain
he said are ya hungry let me take you out to dinner
even though he was old enough to be her babysitter
then, she agreed so he wined and dined her
friends lookin’ for lilly but n-body could find her
he said [?] grown accustomed to she knows it so well
after they’re done they’re goin’ straight to the hotel
low self-esteem the scene it’s really obscene
sixteen, sellin’ her flesh for material things
eyes clenched tight as he proceeds touching her
numb to the world, to her he’s just another customer
bottom of the barrel she couldn’t feel any lesser
he f-cks, busts, then leaves a bill on the dresser
now little lilly staring up at the ceiling
a ghost in the sh-ll with eyes unrevealing

[chorus]
inhale the ether let it sink in deeper
was once a dreamer now a non-believer
numb from the anesthesia growin’ weaker
close to the edge and beginnin’ to tinker
inhale the ether let it sink in deeper
was once a dreamer now a non-believer
numb from the anesthesia growin’ weaker
close to the edge and beginnin’ to tinker

[verse 2]
[?]’s only fourteen, last year in middle school
spendin’ every day getting punked, jumped and ridiculed
keeps a solemn face and a heart that’s sincere
bullied by his peers he chokes back his tears
burries his head in a hoodie hangs low in the dead zone
his only escape he finds through a pair of headphones
it’s here he feels bliss but it’s only momentary
n-body knows that he’s far from the ordinary
parents and teachers act like they’re so concerned
not knowin’ that he’s been pushed past the point of no return
today will be the last day that he rides the bus home
mother tryin’a call him but no answer on the touch tone
phone ringin’, he smashes it until it’s broke up
then heads inside the bathroom and locks the door shut
he sits in the tub and lets the warm water run
two pink clouds in an hour it’ll all be done

[chorus]
inhale the ether let it sink in deeper
was once a dreamer now a non-believer
numb from the anesthesia growin’ weaker
close to the edge and beginnin’ to tinker
inhale the ether let it sink in deeper
was once a dreamer now a non-believer
numb from the anesthesia growin’ weaker
close to the edge and beginnin’ to tinker
