The Power And The Glory

from Alive In New Light by IAMX



Here am I
The divided self
My head spinning like a carousel
The world outside may still be beautiful
But I love this cell

Come over
You are still sane
I could give you just a little brawn if you give me a little brains
It’s a mess in here, I’ve been drinking
Myself blind again

My legs are numb, I just can’t get up
Will you stay through the theatre
Of my self-pity, my lechery?

I’m waiting for your guiding light to bring me back
To the power and the glory

Send messages
Old suggestive shit
I know that it will catch me up, but I just can’t help it
There’s an emptiness in my core
It’s embarrassing

Reel me in
Yes I will confess
I’m numb and I don’t give a fuck ‘cause it’s all just surface
Why can’t you and I just let go
And take all the risks?
