Mewithoutyou - My Exit, Unfair lyrics

rate me

My exit, unobserved, my homesickness, absurd<br />

I said "water," expecting the word<br />

Would satisfy my thirst!<br />

Talking all about the second and third<br />

When I haven't understood the first.<br />

<br />

Jonah, where's that boat going - <br />

Your ship set with eager sails?<br />

There's a swirling storm soon blowing<br />

And no use, fishermen, in rowing from a consecrated whale!<br />

<br />

And just like the clouds they bring a darkness and a hard rain's gonna fall<br />

I felt the crowds bring a loneliness and a hard rain's gonna fall.<br />

<br />

She always weighed me down<br />

But, afraid I might need her, I dragged her around<br />

(It's best to keep close sackcloth and ash in a whitewashed town)<br />

She wore that phony smile on her face,<br />

I guess like a bandage on a wounded place<br />

While I kept the keys to every old lock just in case.<br />

<br />

Rehearsed indifference tossed aside,<br />

Our narrow arms spread wide, <br />

"What unseen pen etched eternal things on the hearts of humankind - <br />

But never let them in our minds?"<br />

<br />

The clouds they brught a darkness<br />

And a hard rain's gonna fall<br />

And all my laughter ends in emptiness<br />

And a hard rain's gonna fall.<br />

My every medicine causes more illness<br />

And a hard rain's gonna fall<br />

And until I let you go I didn't know, you were never mine at all<br />

<br />

But now I spend my days in ever-increasingly complicated ways<br />

Convincing myself of the rightness of each word I say<br />

My exit, unfair if unobserved! My exit, unfair if unobserved!<br />

Ya sabur, subhannallahi, a-uduhu billah minash-shaitnair-rajim, al-hamdu lillah, bismillahir rahmanir rahim.
