BoySetsFire - Nostalgic For Guillotines Lyrics




Breathe,
Breathe in the burning air
Then sigh,
Be relieved there's nothing there

We were free
Long before your free advice
Now the flags,
They will burn in paradise

Rest your head here
Feed our nation for us, please
And retreat
To the back of our lines for your needs

As the blade
Is raised, thoughts get clearer
What if dreams
That you had came crashing down

Would you change
Or erase the memory
Of the day,
Oh, the day you made us bleed

Rest your head here
Feed our nation for us, please
And retreat
To the back of our lines for your needs

We sew
The seeds upon your grave
So you know
You'll feed us either way

Wash away your sins and begin again
Resurrection from empty hands
Back against the wall, watch your tower fall
To the ground with your head

Time to move on
Your power is gone
It's your turn to run
Your hour has come

Let the blade fall
We'll feed our nation as we please
As you grieve
Our children will dance in the streets

We've sewn
The seeds above your grave
So you know
You'll feed us either way

And the meek shall inherit the earth

    Breathe.
    Breathe, in the burning air… then sigh.
    Be relieved there’s nothing there,
    We were free, long before your free advice,
    Now the flags, they will burn in paradise.

    Rest your head here.
    Feed our nation for us, please.
    And retreat, to the back of our lines for your needs.

    As the blade, is raised thoughts get clearer now.
    What if dreams, that you had came crashing down.
    Would you change, or erase the memory.
    Of the day, oh, the day you made us bleed ?

    Rest your head here.
    Feed our nation for us, please.
    And retreat, to the back of our lines for your needs.
    We sew, the seeds upon your grave,
    So you know, you’ll feed us either way.

    [Spoken quote from Jacob's Ladder movie:]
    "If you're frightened of dying,
    and then you're holding on,
    you'll see devils tearing your life away.
    But, if you've made your peace,
    then the devils are really angels,
    freeing, you from the Earth."

    Wash away your sins, and begin again
    Resurrection from empty hands.
    Back against the wall watch your tower fall,
    To the ground with your head.
    Time to move on.
    Your power is gone.
    It's your turn to run.
    Your hour has come.
    …Let the blade fall…

    We’ll feed, our nation as we please,
    As you grieve, our children will dance in the streets.
    We’ve sewn the seeds about your grave,
    So you know, you’ll feed us, either way.

    And the meek shall inherit the earth.
