Meyrin Fields Lyrics – Broken Bells

Cycle down in the belly of the ocean
Why he ever notice it as sucking up?
Rise up and sound this state
That everything else in this world can be broken

When the scolding flow closes the distance
Up from the devil then seeping out
Your tiny vengeful life might pass through my mind
But I blink and it's over

It's coming
Wait for it
Redawning
No contest
All of a sudden
Your Body and Soul
Will call a grave
You've been avoiding

This city
Your culture
Your modern
Day suffering
Is over
So what if
I love it
I can't help it
That's all

Several times in the glimpse of our intentions
I turned the stone and found a brand you light
I can form no more words as I cannot dare see no drama washing me over me

Will someone measure this moron now?
I'm back again in this one light town
I cut the tie and I don't have to rely on nothing no more

It's coming
Wait for it
Redawning
No contest
All of a sudden
Your Body and Soul
Will call a grave
You've been avoiding

This city
Your culture
Your modern
Day suffering
Is over
So what if
I love it
I can't help it
That's all

Windows Lyrics – Broken Bells

City dark, higher up, you notice
Set it up, leave it up, you're hopeless now
The whole world is treating you wrong

Pushing back 'cross the sand
Find a light between the system
But before we collide
[?]

All the world beyond the window
All the world beyond, you are

All the love up above
Tell the lights, I'm not to see it
Tight grip, empty hand
Otherwise we start to look in

All the world beyond the window
All the world beyond, you are

City dark, higher up, you notice
Set it up, leave it up, you're hopeless now
The whole world is treating you wrong

City dark, higher up, you notice
Set it up, leave it up, you're hopeless now
The whole world is treating you wrong

In the night, you could run
Like a book between the pictures
And you look underground
For the light, detect the ridges

All the world beyond the window
All the world beyond, you are

City dark, higher up, you notice
Set it up, leave it up, you're hopeless now
The whole world is treating you wrong

City dark, higher up, you notice
Set it up, leave it up, you're hopeless now
The whole world is treating you wrong

An Easy Life Lyrics – Broken Bells

So tell me where it hurts
Do those stunts prove anything?
I doubt that I believe that anyone is doing it

Darling read this from a book
But you're the one you're hurting
No no

Safe from distraction
Polishing all these severed hands
Oblivion is nice
Til it bites you in the ass

Up in your role
Without a single clue
The riddle of a name
In every poison arrow end

Twilight hours on a hook
With no money burning
No no

I gotta desert you
Quietly slide out your back door
The vertigo is nice
But it makes it hard to dance

Guess you want to win the prize
Company odds exchange this night
Losing it all again ain't wise

Whoa, wait
She said that I record?
I got shift than I deserve
Look back from anything, but
The question is simple
Why not be smiling?
No no

What did it hurt?
Leaving it all to happenstance
One of these nights
When I can't get settled down

What did it hurt?
Leaving it all to happenstance
One of these nights
When you just can't settle down
When you just can't settle down

Heartless Empire Lyrics – Broken Bells

And what you found was gold
As black as dried blood
The taste was so, so sweet
And one loves to love

The whole idea seems unfair to all
But it's always that way

So circles, crowds take in
Coincidental sun
And careful hands tie their knots
And you're dumb to be done

No, I'm not desolate enough
And heartless empire from
Where to end it

Those who search search by themselves
Leaving nothing to gain
Cast like stones into the night
We're all one and the same

The High Road Lyrics – Broken Bells

We're bound to wait all night
She's bound to run amok
Invested enough in it anyhow,
To each his own
The Garden is sorting out
She curls her lips on a bow
I don't know if you're dead or not
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes,
This army has so many heads
To analyze...
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head...

[Chorus]
Cause they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour in your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

The dawn to end all nights
That's all we hoped it was
A break from the warfare in your house
To each his own...
A soldier is bailing out
And curled his lips on the barrel
And I don't know if the dead can talk
To anyone...

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many hands
Are you one of us?
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head

[Chorus]
Cause they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It's too late to change your mind
You let laws be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let laws be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let laws be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let laws be your guide...

Vaporize Lyrics – Broken Bells

What amounts to a dream anymore?
A crude device;
A veil on our eyes
A simple plan we'd be different from the rest
And never resign to a typical life

Common fears start to multiply
We realize we're paralyzed
Where'd it go,
All that precious time?
Did we even try to stem the tide?

Why should we waste it on
Buying into the same old lies?
The longer we wait around
The faster the years go by

It's not too late
To feel a little more alive
Make an escape
Before we start to vaporize

Doubtless, we've been through this
So if you want to follow me you should know
I was lost then and I am lost now
And I doubt I'll ever know which way to go

Your Head Is On Fire Lyrics – Broken Bells

(Look behind
Your head is on fire
Whirling masses
Rolling ashes
Keep on yawning
Career dawning
Life is Tasteless
Folding paces)

To turn away from the night
Allowing the light a low
He's surely fooling yourself
Leaving life on the shelf

You'll never know
How low an angry heart can go
How long a sitting hands return meant

(Look behind
Your head is on fire
Whirling masses
Rolling ashes
Keep on yawning
Career dawning
Life is Tasteless
Folding paces)

The Ghost Inside Lyrics – Broken Bells

She sold her love to a modern man
Cause solid currency's the hardest to love
All other modern hels you cover your eye
Don't let the lady finger blow in your hat
Di-da

Feel like a daughter
She's like a star tonight
Without wanting
She gave up
The ghost inside

Just like a whiskey bottle drained on the floor
She got no future, just a love to endure
This gives some matter to shaking her hide
'Too late to leave him' are the songs in her car
Di-di-da

Feel like a daughter
She's like a star tonight
Without wanting
She gave up
The ghost inside
They call it chivalry
Never pull a punch for free
You ever wonder what it had to move on
This phony article
That put you on the floor
A double standard
Here we look when we walk

Feel like a daughter
She's like a star tonight
Without wanting
She gave up
The ghost inside

Was it all for show?
To turn into all of them
Turning a page
Trust me darlin'
I'm carving 'em up through the dust in your town
Crawling over rubble just to sound me out
Tend to wonder why?

Sailing To Nowhere Lyrics – Broken Bells

Tomorrow I sail the world
Lovin, more than I know with blood on my hands
Wouldn't know, you're a devious sister
Guts on your blouse
Close your old ways

And diamonds a dozen
Sailing to nowhere
They burn and float on
Still we move on through the night

Boiling systems
Drain the lot
They go down by their hearts
One by one
Long to find
A way up
Following the ghost down

Running in circles
A mouse on the table
I try to feel, I just don't
Hurtin' and dead inside
Go on and cut 'em in half
Said I

Trap Doors Lyrics – Broken Bells

Walk out before you make it worse on yourself
Now's not the time for that elegant laugh
Digress from the people
Once by your side
Once by your side
But now that it's over
You have to pick up
And start again, start again

Falling to earth
And you're calling it out
You're burning yourself and your challenge to winter
Gotta clip the lines and move for yourself
Just move for yourself, love
Now that it's over
You have to pick up
And just watch your back, watch your back

And close your eyes to us
Fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad, have we grown too tired
Longing to find

Learned that in time
You want it to end
Your life at this temperature
Life under water
You gotta let these fools all trample themselves
They trample themselves, just dying to enter
You're preaching to the choir
So turn around, turn around

And close your eyes to us
Fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad, have we grown too tired
Longing to find

And close your eyes to us
And fight fire
Trap doors to endless wisdom
Young lad, have we grown too tired
Longing to find

Citizen Lyrics – Broken Bells

This is a day without
A trace of reason
No matter where you turn

And the walls will fall
Affirming nothing
So what's it all about?

Call on a bright star
Or play your hand as an intellect
Wounds always speak too loud

Get along for awhile
See the sin in the sea
How the innocent are bound to the damned
What is, just is, I know
So we're trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

Are we all to ride
The edge of nothing?
Shake hands if I deny

And if they don't know
Their heart is stopping
Cause everyone is right

Get along for awhile
See the sin in the sea
How the innocent are bound to the damned
What is, just is, I know
So we're trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

From the moment that we're born
Till we're old and tired out
Do we ever know?

From the moment that were born
Till we're old and tired out
Do we ever know?

October Lyrics – Broken Bells

So you showed me around your town
To hell again and back
Our love sucks
Already made all the friends hand off

I know it might seem odd
Because your not the only one
I remember my self as a lonely child
So I was
And you've got me wrong
You've got me wrong

(Ground your sense of worth
Cos the spark of morning burns
And all of your searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

Remember what they say
Their's no shortcut to a dream
It's all blood and sweat
And life is what you manage in between

But what you don't know
Is you're too young and eager to love
Seething eyes
So you're about to get into
The ditch that you opened up

(Ground your sense of worth
Cos the spark of morning burns
And all of your searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

Sister's allay
and leave you behind
You want it sewn
I cut the light
of a lot of mood

Sister you know enough
But for now just let it go
Don't run, don't rush
Just flow

Through the give and take you had to learn
How to cross the coals and not get burned
But you're really just a little girl
Playing in the park until the sun goes down

sometime you want to rise
One did it's our desire
No doubt you think you braided your own hair
So you're all grown up

Should you want to cross the line
Which way do you want to fly?
Pretend that love could help you find your way
But you got me wrong
But you got me wrong

Mongrel Heart Lyrics – Broken Bells

Is it hard to wait
Drawn by your mongrel heart again
If you don't answer, would you want to be found out
You duck through the wind in your old blight on the town

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that spectre down

And would it be wrong
To clamp down on your racing heart, love
And if they'd known, what sifted down to be found out
It's not what you deserve

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn its waiting game
To bring that spectre down

Faster than you were going to allow
Turn out the lights or say get out
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now
Five days on, trapped by a wave

Love is turning you out
Sliding worry round
I try to warn this waiting game
To bring that spectre down

Black corn was soaking
You'll be cut down in the seedy stairway
If you don't answer, would you want to be found now
Sapped from the bed to the window

Looking back on that time
Starting in the minds
What it is to be twenty nine
Fame sets your life down

Would it be wrong
Would it be wrong
To disappoint you now
Disappoint you now
