lyrics

Subconscious Heart

Because I don't know you, for now I will place you
Inside of the hole in my subconscious heart
And I don't know what I want, in spite of my yearnings
But then again, who ever does?

I woke with a fright in the middle of the night
Saying what if the world ends?
He woke with a fright in the middle of the night
Saying what if the world ends?
She woke with a fright in the middle of the night
Saying what if the world ends?
What if the world ends today?

My body's been battered by billions of billboards
Which promise a product to better my life
With a sword by my side, I drive through the scene
Catching all the eyes I dare not meet in dreams

CHORUS

With a far away ring there's a stirring of wings
Waking up, releasing from this tethered string
Oh say can you see? Oh now have you heard?
There's nothing we have to fear
There's only this fire to burn

CHORUS

If someday the world ends,
This is how the world will end
Never just how we thought the world would end:
Not with a bang, but with a whimper

***Inspired by “Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot:
“Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death’s dream kingdom
These do not appear…”
…..…
“This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”
