Faithless - Killer's Lullaby Lyrics



I'm sittin' at a coffee tableunable to see straight
Watchin' parallel lines unwind and undulate
Behind the rain-streaked windowpanethe scene's bleak
Another train leavin' home
Conceding defeat with a low moan
Hangin' in a skymade of stone
Everybody's leavin' homeI called my man jerome
To come meet me in the twilight zone
Leave your mobile phone at home and come alone
I bought him coffee and a snack
Settled backstarted speakin'
He was tweakin' with the peak of his cap
While I'm seekin' to discover what it takes to stay sober
Not cover my mistakes
Try to maybe make sense of the evidence
It's overshe's gone for good
Why should I liesingin' a killer's lullaby
Identified by the dying ring of her goodbye
The last thing you hear before your life disappear

Now it just gets worselike my stomach 'll burst
Feel like I've been cursed.
With seven centuries of bitter memories
And inadequaciesprevious he's and she's
I'm movin' round this old house for the last time
Scene of my past crimesbeen here for lifetimes
Hearin' the chimes of the old clock that used to mock
You got eternity for takin' stock
This place is like a padlock
You look shocked.
Trust menothing ever moves but the dust
There's just us and I'm here to torment and tease
And that's how it was for centuries
Me and my memoriestill you brought the keys
Took the couple of saturdays
I moved in runnin' from tragedies and boozing
Seven hundred years since I came here
You appearsame hairsame quizzical stare
I couldn't get near
And the sheer frustration was more than I could bear
I was really cursedthought I'd been through the worst part
That was just the first partjust the start
Every night I'd be sitting with dreadbreaking my heart
In case the man she'd been chasin' gets to first base
And I just can't escapeI'm in bad shape
You making love to someone else is more than I can take
And so I make all the movement I can to no avail
Scream and yellsinkin' deeper into my personal hell

I'm getting heatedI'm sorryhave another coffee
I needed to release my sparrow chest from just a piece of this pressure
Unless an escape route is found
I'm going down underground
Into lifetimes of painit's absurd
The heaviest chain is contained is the sound of one word
So I'm referred back to hellhuh
Just as wellI hate needles an' get twinges at the thought
Of syringes

J (as in jerome)I'm going insane with shame
I dream and watch her makin' love over and over again
With what I call a farmer's swain
Unintelligentpea-brained retard who's dick is always hard
Oh godof course I'm jealousfellows
Oversexed flexing his pec's
Jesuswhat's he going make her do next?
I'm mad vexthe way she gently scratches his chest
You used to do that to me back in 1253
Pity mewhile you lie with your lover
I stare and suffer in despair while you ruffle his hair
Unaware of who else is there
I move quickI want to try my trick one last time
You know it's possible to vaguely define my outline
When dust move in the sunshine
So I'm tryin' to changevibrate myself to near-human pitch
Which reminds me how I used to come unstitched
And switch 'round the house in a blind rage
It took years and an ocean of tears to find the key to this
Cage
And write another stage into a new age
It's difficult to gauge
But I know that I'll see you againon that you may depend
I just don't know how or when
Sleep onmy lost love on gone
