This Will Make You Love Again

from The Alternative by IAMX

duskbringer A truly phenomenal song. Criminally unrecognized not only for Chris' vocal performance, but for these truly epic notes and lyrics that thresh the melodramatic from the mundane. A nonsense you can only comprehend in hindsight. A plaintive wish to endure it all again.


When the joys of living just leave you cold
Frozen from the failing mess you’ve made your own
And if you want an ending to your screenplay life
Here’s the consolation that will change your heart and mind

All the glitz messiahs just pass the time
A cure for no real sickness, cross your hopes and die
Your supermarket Jesus comes with smiles and lies
Where justice he delays, is always justice he denies

This will make you love again

And now you’re safe – love again
To feel the reigns – love again
The sweet delays – love again
To shoot the breeze – love again

Early Thursday mornings wipe away the flies
The crossfire fights for action in-between your thighs
Every touch is sacred when they leave the room
If I have to switch the lights off, I wanna switch them off with you

This will make you love again
