Gang Of Youths – The Diving Bell lyrics
Come close to the eye, the dam, I’d only see you
Here for my side of my lord of my blue screen blues
There’s a path headed out to the bright lights
And a myriad suede
And no dice for the radio silence
And our pirate ways

And I’m a far and away now vagrant
And drifted off course
Settled into a concrete rhythm
Be slow in close

And in the hands of a foreign danger
And in the enemy’s fire
And as close as you’ve come to living
In a long, long time

And I dreamed the voices they were calling out to you
Come alive, come alive, and the firings
Where everything is true

And everything is true…

Sleep now on the bed that so feigns my breath
Don’t dream of the days we’ve given up
Let that sun slip

Come and dance by the armored soldiers
For the menace of peace
Come and stand by the ghetto blasters
Playing fuck the police

In a way we’re a lot like strangers
At the end of our rope
In a way this lonesome chasm is
Holding close

There’s a fire in the batting cages
For the rest of our time
Come alive, come alive, cause you’ll never know
When something is right

Avert your eyes, forever love is true
Avert your eyes if everything we love we lose

And everything is true
And everything to lose

Close your eyes
Not giving out
And just enough
Oh go to nuts

Hold it down
Oh hold for more
But I know you’ll never, die I’ll never leave you in the gutter
Know you’ll never die, I’ll never leave you in the gutter

Close enough, not giving up
I just announced, not good, too rough
Hold it down, oh hold for more
So I know you’ll never die I’ll never leave you in the gutter
No you’ll never die I won’t see you again
No you’ll never die I won’t see you again
Oh no, no, no, I won’t see you again…
