Agnes Obel - Citizen Of Glass Lyrics




Rend a black drop from my heart
With the weight of days
The end of time has just begun
I hear it call your name

And no straining of the string
Can reverse what will begin

Some let go and some hold on
There is no mistake
If I could wash all ill away
Tell me would you stay?

And no lovers sin
Can reverse what will begin

  26. Jason Jochems

    Agnes has said that this song was in part, about paranoia. I wonder if it ties into the mental illness phenomena that happened with ancient royalty where princesses were afraid to sit down because they believed they were made of glass and would break?

    Simon Hansen

    Glass was valuable to the vikings and since a volva was clanless she could tell the warlords what was going on between other clans.

    "Citizen Of Glass"

    Rend a black drop from my heart
    With the weight of days
    The end of time has just begun
    I hear it call your name

    And no straining of the string
    Can reverse what will begin

    Some let go and some hold on
    There is no mistake
    If I could wash all ill away
    Tell me would you stay?

    And no lovers sin
    Can reverse what will begin
