Words by Charlie Parks

15 years



Hold out your hands
I’m gonna relapse
No callous laments
Soon we’ll be friends

Hardened child
You didn’t mean this
Just caught in a flood
I blame cocaine

Yeah

Times been all the things they said
You wouldn’t break
But you wouldn’t fucking bend

Last night I dreamed
I couldn’t breathe in
Not sure if this makes sense
You were born in France

Now I wake and Stalin is dead
Please steal me.. (heal me?)
It’s cold in T.V. land
Come on baby, light my fire

Light my fire..

Times been all the things they said
You wouldn’t break
But you wouldn’t fucking bend

Now you’ve crawled back here
But it’s been 15 years
Not over this
I’m not fucking over then

Crawl
Until you stand
Until you exist

Crawl
Until you stand
Until you exist

Until you exist again

absolution clinic



I never received her name
Her lips gone broken again
So why am i running in chains here? 
And whose to loosen..
The shape? 

Because the sun, wasn't mean to leave 
Our moons offending earth 
I cannot contain this 

But in release these windows
Break wide open 
Release these visions of
Self destructing vows 

Shake no malice from me 
The blankets drawn to be saved
I’m fucking caught in the mirrors flood
No caution nailed to..
The shape 

Because the sun, wasn't mean to bleed
Our moons impending worth 
You cannot contain this 

But in release these windows
Break wide open
Release these visions of
Self destructing vows

And all of the way
I've been convinced that lying
Is better than lying awake

The bed that i made
You kill me for something 
A forgiveness i never gave 

Do you blanket disease? 
You've walked me for miles
Never could let me believe   
Like a master

But in release these windows
Break wide open
Release these visions of
Self destructing vows 

And all of the way
I've been convinced that lying
Is better than lying awake 

The bed that I made 
You kill me for something 
A forgiveness I never gave 

Do you comfort disease? 
I've walked this far 
Couldn't you let me be?

I still haven't suffered enough
All your Holy Ghosts need friends
They're lonely 

I still haven't suffered enough 
All your holy ghosts 
They're my friends 

Into the ocean (f***)



They come to catch you like a stone 
They call the sun 
Sometimes a lie don't know 

When conversations die  
You come with me 
Awaken before the tide 
Come get undone 

I would.. 

And time keeps sinking in my ears
Just like the sutras, 
I’m banished to North Korea 
As she sang “ I fear our fire,
But praise anything that labels love divine 
I will not fucking run.. ” 

I would..

I would..

I would..

1..
2..
3.. 

Gone are the days that left little room for words
When we could just fuck
And be able to give ourselves the world
Completely into the ocean 
And onto the divine 

Gone are the days when our bodies warmed the earth
When we could just fuck
And be able to give ourselves rebirth   
Completely into the ocean 
Into the ocean
And into the ocean she falls

And into the ocean she falls 

I need your fuck 
I need your trust 
I need your fuck
I need your love 

I’ve always needed your love

in dreams

Saddle felt my weight
It’s finally gone to blankets as I wait
Assuming grace

Garden loosening
If karma breaths; she knows
It’s why I’m saved
As I’ve always been..

Centering
From turning wide
I’ve lost my senses here
It’s not that I don’t mind

She bled seven days
Just for several nights
Broke every promise she’s ever made
Just so I could say I don’t mind

Gone
You’ve cradled and gone for love

A cost for all your lace
Come here a second before you board that plane
Kiss your friend who stayed

Take my books a while
Take heed in knowing the snow is why we fly
I miss your face

I miss your wail

Centering
From turning wide
I’ve lost my senses here
And maybe I do mind

She bled seven days
Lord; just for several nights
Broke every promise she’s ever made

And baby that’s alright

In dreams

You’re mine

In dreams

Sometimes

Spellbound

She waits
While I’m laid
And I’ve never been found
I drained this
Tied it down

I stand
In the shape
I never found out
A saviors built
From the ground

Assume that you knew
This gave me more to consider
That I could be spellbound
By your indecision
Not feel incomplete

Come sit beside me
Tell me what you meant
When you didn’t say
Those words again

Sometimes the worlds I realize
Turns back against my neck
This aint over yet
This will probably happen
Again

Assume that you knew
This gave me more to consider
That I could be spellbound
By your indecision
Not feel incomplete

I assume that you loved
I assume that you were
A tourniquet rambling
Can’t drown in these feelings; fuck
Drugs juxtapose them
They won’t let you feel

As clarity is drowned in falling
Mountains move around you
As your grip
It grieves from the meaning
These oceans surround you
When your voice is reduced a whisper
The sky it falls through the vision 

When your voice is drowned in sorrow   

I will be the one to listen to your words

Assume that you knew
This gave me more to consider
That I could be spellbound
By your indecision
Not feel incomplete

I assume that you loved
I assume that you were
A tourniquet rambling
Can’t drown in these feelings; fuck
Drugs juxtapose them
They won’t let you feel

Everything you said

Everything you saved

Everything you said

Everything you saved

Everything you said

Everything you saved

Everything you sang

Enjoy the silence

*Words by Martin Gore

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand?
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial

Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the Silence..

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here..
In my arms..
