Closer

You say as you realise
All you once were is demolished
And the tears which you bathe in don't bring so much warmth
When surrounding your shamefully naked dead body
The insects are filling the rooms of the manger
When you spent much time looking
And being a stranger
It feels like the emptiness fills up the cage that you made of it,
Now you must pay for it

Oh, it never comes easy, no
We know there's meaning
And all that's revealed is the sickening beating of drums
Drums in your heart as it comes, closer

The lady, she smiles in the corner
You danced with her for a long while and she'll always remember you
Comes and she goes away, always so silently
Moaning on Saturday nights in dark alleyways
You know that she has her ways
Like a beast dressed in black
Like a teen with crushed dreams
As it bleeds on her Instagram feed
And she hasn't got skin anymore

Oh, it never comes easy, no
We know there's meaning
And all that's revealed is the sickening beating of drums
Drums in your heart as it comes, closer

My daughter, I tell you
If you listen or read to this far than you know
You got problems and need to be drinking in town
And be stoned from the weed
But you know that you are not mindless but free
For you have your collection of old fallen leaves
From the tree in the garden from when you were three
Long before mum and daddy went crazy and weird
And left you alone with your brother those years
And your memory's gone but you still own the fear

Oh, it never comes easy, no
We know there's meaning
And all that's revealed is the sickening beating of drums
Drums in your heart as it comes, closer

Take my hand, hold it and
Be free,
Take my hand, hold it and
Be free,
Closer, oh, closer, closer

I guess that it's sad
When that afternoon came
And you told me that I was just going insane
And the big mess that came when you came here and said
You were physically dead but you will always love me
And hold so close onto me, be what you want to be
It made me so scared but held on to the fact that I'll love you, forever
Oh,

Oh, it never comes easy, no
We know there's meaning, oh
And all that's revealed is the sickening beating of drums
Drums in your heart as it comes, closer, closer, closer!
