Armchair Cynics – Swallow lyrics

On the ceiling the plaster moves like clouds
That turn to shapes
Headlights from all the passing cars leak through my blinds
Crash against the wall

And I'm a picture frame hiding nicotine stains
Hung up here for countless days
Half awake and half asleep
Just lying here with what's inside of me

She cast the darkest shade onto my heart
Turned a life of love into a bitter pill so hard to swallow
Hard to swallow

Here it comes
The feeling that I don't want to face this
Here it comes
Just when things were getting good
Here it comes
The feeling that she cast the darkest shade
Cancels out the day

In the morning the sun is a crack of light
That finds my face
Shines itself down on this dark room
Through half filled bottles of spilt cheap booze

And I'm a pair of shoes strung over a telephone wire
Over head and out of reach
I'm half awake and half asleep
Just lying here with what's inside of me

She cast the darkest shade onto my heart
Turned a life of love into a bitter pill so hard to swallow
Hard to swallow
Hard to swallow

Here it comes
The feeling that I don't want to face this
Here it comes
Just when things were getting good
Here it comes
The feeling that she cast the darkest shade
Cancels out the day

Cast the darkest shade
Cancels out the day

Here it comes
The feeling that I don't want to face this
Here it comes
Just when things were getting good
Here it comes
The feeling that she cast the darkest shade
Cancels out the day

Cast the darkest shade
Cancels out the day

Cast the darkest shade
Cast the darkest shade
