jessica law – lotus eaters lyrics

Loading...

we stopped to take on water on a long laconic shore
broken and defeated by the searing scars of war
when through the dusty darkness we glimpsed a glowing flame
and soon the mild+eyed melancholy lotus eaters came

and they said:
“why the struggle? watch the trees
they don’t have to toil to drop their fruit or shed their leaves
what’s to fight for? all will fall
mountains will crumble, time will claim the strongest city walls
after all

you’re with the lotus eaters now
no need to worry how the world spins round
no need to keep your head out of the clouds
why cling to hope of homeward bound?
’cause here we’ve all you need, the lotus leaves
will send you on a slumber sweet and sound
so stick around”

stop! wake up! you’re dead behind the eyes
we haven’t reached our home and there are battles still to fight
what happened to the spark that fear and fury would ignite?
i’ve lost you to the lotus and its languid little lies

stop! wake up! you’re dead behind the eyes
we haven’t reached our home and there are battles still to fight
what happened to the spark that fear and fury would ignite?
i’ve lost you to the lotus and its languid little lies
“let us stay here! what will last?
nothing but fractured fragments of the dark and dreadful past
what’s to fight for? all will fall.”
well, i say better to make a stand than stranded with no hope at all
as they call:

“you’re with the lotus eaters now
no need to worry how the world spins round
no need to keep your head out of the clouds
why cling to hope of homeward bound?
’cause here we’ve all you need, the lotus leaves
will send you on a slumber sweet and sound
so stick around”

“you’re with the lotus eaters now
no need to worry how the world spins round
no need to keep your head out of the clouds
why cling to hope of homeward bound?
’cause here we’ve all you need, the lotus leaves
will send you on a slumber sweet and sound
so stick around”

world forgive me, i’m so tired
i searched inside me but the spark of fury had expired
it transpired
i’m with the lotus eaters now
no need to worry now, though i’m not proud
let others make the world keep spinning round
forget the life you left behind
before the lotus drives it from my mind
i’ll leave these words for followers to find:
don’t get entwined
you’ll lose your mind
