Will Oldham – Tonight's Decision lyrics

(And Hereafter)

When's a crime forgiven by them
You can never live again
I can only advise to another
Never, o never forsake your brother

(Chorus:)
And where are my friends
And where is my family
They've all gone away
Though it's I who have left them

I have heard death cry, I have heard him falter
I have heard him lie and escape unscathed
When he comes for me I will fuck him, o
I will waste him in my own way
He is scum, but he wields great glory, o
O to live forever in some oceany glow
Let new life rise in the face of death
Let it rise, let it take in what can't be held
And with life, let me rise, let me stand up high
Let me then decide who all will die
For with me, I'd have all of everyone burn
And the rest suffer death in it's own black blur

[Chorus:]

Let the others cry, while our voice is still
We will wait, we may lie like wolves in the fields
O hold your throats in silence a while
There is enough noise now from where they are
In the silence lie, in the silence take
O take in the rumor of a passing through
The house will be empty, a house of love
Calling out, there was nothing else for us to do

[Chorus:]

And where are the days
I used to be friendly
