Swans - The Most Unfortunate Lie



Someone was here before me and they took the possibility away

And without any control or freedom the elements were laid down

In this way

And so my mind is slowly devoured by the ideas to which it subscribes

And in the end I'm left with nothing except the memory of

Believing my own lies

And where are you now, my most unfortunate lie?


The light shows my face in the mirror and my hand as it reaches

To touch

The evidence of pain and delusion and a mind which was never clear

Enough

I saw the sun rise in an ancient desert where this moment was first

Foretold

And the black water was thick as blood and my hands they were full of

Gold

And where are you now, the most lethal, all consuming lie I ever told?

Where are you now, my unfortunate, irreversible lie?
