New Model Army

New Model Army - Vanity

rate me

I'll teach you everything that I know now, Eddie

If you really want to take the time

But don't expect to get answers to anything, Eddie

There is just one thing I've learned

Through everything that I've done and tried

Everything I have justified

It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control

It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all

I always drive like a madman, Eddie

But you'll soon get used to that

I believe if you're moving fast enough, Eddie

You don't ever have to watch your back

I choose solid ground to make my stands

I stay off the streets at closing time

It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control

It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all

Remember how it was out at Bunglass

We climbed up to the peak and stood against the rocks

The photographs came - you couldn't see us

We were lost against the mountains like specks of dust

And the mirror never lies, it's just these foolish eyes

And we all see what we want to see

What we need to see, what we have to see

And so will you do just the same one day, Eddie

I've been to that place a thousand times

Looked over the edge so many times

Wanted to jump a thousand times

Well we talk about saving the world now, Eddie

It's our vanity gone mad

She'll survive us all perfectly well

When we're all long buried and dead

Clever monkeys with technology

Barely out of the caves and the trees

It's all vanity, all vanity - we try to have control

It's all vanity, all vanity 'cause Chaos rules it all

Eddie now let it go . . .

I turn my head away from here

Down towards the rolling seas again

I kneel and worship where I can

The ground comes swirling up and through these veins . . .
