Black Black lyrics

Speed of Sound

Do you think I'm gone? Most of this would pleasure you alone. It's that I can't even see, there's midnight behind my eyelids. No one's home, and I'll lie to everyone, not even my lovers will see what's wrong. All my skin is drenched in light, that's what's wrong. I died in a fire, I died in a fire. It's already done. I've got ideas I'd never put in words, but you sparkle when I speak. How can I resist it, you're alone. And I'll lie to everyone, not even my lovers will see what's wrong. All my skin is drenched in light, that's what's wrong. I died in a fire, I died in a fire.

Never Feel Sorry Again

The voltage sailed, with pure hindsight, was the best thing to own, you can burn through a crowded room, but you'll never feel sorry again. We could say that I've broken through, left ear failure, I would say that I died alone and I'll never feel sorry again.

You Are the Sunshine of My Life

You'll leave me, what do you mean? Where the hell will you go? I thought I owned you. In the winter time I'm not alone. She feels just like a bird. She thought I owned her, but I'm sleeping with somebody else, lying to somebody new. I thought I owned you? I'm flooded out with energy, energy and deceit. I thought I owned her? Holy hands and Holy feet, why the hell would we meet? She thought I owned her, but I'm sleeping with somebody else, lying to somebody new. I thought I owned you?

Valentine

Wait, stop, wait just hold on a minute. Six years ago I was driving home from your house. Now it's fire filled hallways and tears from each finger. I've counted the years, I am six different people now. Valentine, you move your hands like you were wearing mine. All of your hearts are as smooth as shutters. You're as supple to me as a warm little ball of milk. Still, your first compromise was the very first flaw. You won't feel nothing, I'll feel it for us all. Valentine, you move your hands like you were wearing mine.

Every Move a Picture

She spoke to me in rhythms, every move a picture. I notice things that no one wants to see. I could hardly stand to listen. She's shimmering like an eardrum. I'm seeing things that no one wants to see. I'll leave you, I'll leave you, that's alright, just more time for me. You want to know my predictions? Dark blue right up through you. I'm seeing things that no one wants to see. The infamy precedes me, it's shimmering like an eardrum. I notice things that no one wants to see. I'll leave you, I'll leave you, that's alright, just more time for me.

Distress Signals

We've had to expect much less. I don't know the half. We bend ourselves to the eyes. I had to expect much less. You don't know the half. You lend yourself to the eyes.

The Perfect Date

It's like I saw through the deep red of your heart beats. The seeds in the language, it seems like we never see. You're wrapped in dark skin. You sparkle with larceny. This is enlightenment, you are the lamb. This is enlightenment, you are the lamb. Kiss, Kiss. I never noticed that you turned your shoulders down. No, you're not dying, you feel like the ocean now. It's more than quiet, it's more than you'll allow. This is enlightenment, you are the lamb. Kiss, Kiss. It's like I saw through the deep red of your heart beats. You're wrapped in dark skin. You sparkle with larceny. This is enlightenment, you are the lamb. Kiss, Kiss.

Sad Getting Sadder

You won't see me, I'm gone. No wonder, no wonder the happiness dropped out from under. I'm sorry about the rain and snow. I left her in a hotel alone in blue and yellow Switzerland. They're right up to our shoulder blades. They look at us as throwaways. I look at them as gifts.

Alaska

You smell like burning luggage, lighting fires on the hillsides, you remind me of Alaska and other places that I've been to, but I've been swimming in the noises of all these other people, trying to hold it all together and pretend like everything's like normal. But, I'm down, what do you want from me? Don't you know what counts? You sound like falling airplanes and you scream at me to watch you, as you fall through stained-glass windows into other peoples houses, but my knees are weak, my knees are weak. And I'm down, what do you want from me? Don't you know what counts?

The Sweetness

I am dark blue, I'm my own death and locusts and dogs love me. We've got the same arms, they've got the same thoughts. I feel them below and above me, so you fail, I'm sweetness. Don't you fail, I'm sweetness. I'm tanglement and high pitched movement, tanglement. The movements are silk. I wear my brown eyes like two warm trophies and locusts and dogs love me. I am dark blue and I'm my own death, sweetness. We've got the same arms. They've got the same eyes. I feel them below and above me.

Lives like Satellites

What controls the plague? The low hum, the low hum. Angles are the flashbulb burst. Tiny little shivers of rain. If you look high enough you'll see us. Her skin is dipped in atoms. I'll never look at her the same. It comes down to beautiful fingers that speak for themselves. They talk to me. They say they are milk.

Where Is the Assassin?

No Camilia... You're no fool you need me. Poison is the wind swell. Maybe I could love the three of you. Last thing I need from you is another heartless lay, but who am I, who am I to notice. Twenty-two is outside, inside you're all pink. Hallways filled with windows. Maybe I could love the three of you. No Camilia, you're no fool, you need me. Poison is the wind swell. Maybe I could love the three of you.
