Le Néant

lyrics

what do i see
past the landscape of bones and debris?
past the rampage of lost legacies?
oh baby i see you touching me
oh baby i see heaven and earth
swallowed up like the early bird worm
universes colliding head first
oh baby i see us taking turns, till one day

when there’s no one left to line up
nothing to touch
nothing to hide or to dig up
who will find us flickering lights
lost in the cracks of space and time?

what will i be
once this world turns to dust and debris?
but a soft flash, a lone memory?
oh baby will you remember me?
oh baby i’ll be neon and gold
bottled up in a vacuum tight hole
spit out light years beyond what we know
oh baby will i have you to hold?
till one day

when there’s no one left to find us
nothing to crush
nothing to fight or to climb up
what designer will sublimate what is left
of our love and rotten brains?

what will it be?
nonsense worlds for an eternity?
dried up dew drops with botched histories?
oh baby where did you become me?
oh baby there’s still heaven and earth
twisted up like a school-boy’s self worth
like the tongue of a baby’s fist words
oh tell me what have we learned

‘cause lately i see nothing
through the hot tide convulsing and blind
reaching and rushing right through me
spinning supine suspended in time
watching the sand and stars combining
