American Eyes

you drop the bomb
using all your chlorine
you find yourself
so far down it’s normal
there at your feet
the slow burn comes
to carry you back
to earth or where you’re from
you feed me whole
varied nutrients
i lost control
i trashed all my instincts
i wanted to escape
to feel not there at all

they were alive
and they spoke to me
broke the disguise of my empathy
my valentine she wrote to me
will you ever come again

england is gone
the way of the gypsies
we do what we can
within the systems
I, hope you feel the earth
turn inside of you

they were alive
and they spoke to me
broke the disguise of my empathy
american eyes
so close to me
will you ever come again?
will you ever come again?
will you ever come again?

a heavy load
and a fucked up system
you’re on your own
with all your instants
all you see you, is all you get
surfing on the waves of promises

my valentine
she wrote to me
american eyes
so close to me
american eyes
so close to me
american eyes
will you ever come again?
will you ever come again?
american eyes
american eyes
will you ever come again?
will you ever come again?
(american eyes)
will you ever come again?
