Godflesh - Songs Of Love And Hate

Artist: Godflesh
Release: Songs Of Love And Hate

1. Wake

Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
You can’t see white if you won’t see black
Empty shell
Shallow skull
Your fight lost
There’s no other way

I’m held back
I’m held back
But I’m awake
The body sleeps as the mind destroys

I’m not you
Never will
I’m not you
Never be free
I’m held back

2. Sterile Prophet

Don’t use it
If you can’t feel it
Don’t be it
If you don’t see it

In a world
So full of pain
I can barely
Say your name

Don’t use it
If you can’t see it

3. Circle Of Shit

Forget yourself
Just don’t respect yourself
Reject yourself
Just don’t respect yourself

Feel weak
You just mean nothing
Feel owned
Just feel like nothing

Stand down
Show you’re weak
Stand down
Make them smile
Don’t see yourself
Don’t see outside yourself

4. Hunter

Fear for your own survival
You can’t fight what you are
You’re still running from yourself
No escape from your own hell

Inside you
Inside me

You can’t help but be the hunter
Man the natural born destroyer

5. Gift From Heaven

I am nothing
I am love
I am hate
Hate my love
Love my hate

I am empty
But I’m hopeful
I can see
And I’m fearful
I am nothing
Feel like everything
I am scared


6. Amoral

You corrupt
You enslave
Enforced taboos
To the grave

Make me right
To fit your mould
Make me right
Like your moral code

You distort
You destroy
You own
You lie

Make us follow
Like the sheep we are
Make us follow
We need to believe

7. Angel Domain

All my fears
Looking where to hide
All my fears buried deep inside
Easy for you
Your skin’s so tough, it’s hard
Easy for you
You only see what you want
Angel by your side
Easy for you
How could you be so weak
Easy for you
Everything looks just fine
All my fears
Looking where to hide
All my fears
They’ll get in you in time

8. Kingdom Come

I’ll give you space
As you chain me down
I won’t let go
But you’ll let me fall

I’ll see your way
As you avoid mine
I’ll give in
So you can walk on me

I’ll close my eyes
So you can sew them shut
I’ll keep the faith
Or you’ll crucify me

If I can believe
Then you’ll believe in me

9. Time Death And Wastefulness

How many lies
Can people take
How many emotions
Can people fake

All there is is time
Be what you are
Don’t fucking care

I fail you
You know I do
I’m just the tool
Always the fool

Be what you are
Don’t fucking care
Be what you are
I don’t fucking care

10. Frail

Owe yourself
But no one else
Behind your eyes
Inside your head
Reach in
But don’t reach out

I’ll come and try
If only in vain
I’ve never watched in shame
I’ve never watched in vain
Don’t ever change no
Just stay the same

11. Almost Heaven

Let me know who I am
I’m not sure where I am
Let me know what is left
Because I’m not sure if I’m here right now

Let me breathe, give me air
Suffocation is all I know
Can’t do it myself, don’t know how
Never been taught so I’m nothing now
