Dispatch - Curse + Crush Lyrics




We try to understand
The right to life like fire to the arson
You got it right at last, but then the world
Had a different plan and it took it all away

Years and years you fought
To try to light your darkness with a reason
Maybe a woman someday, maybe even a child
To hold and help and start over again

And we run and we gun and we die young
And we curse and we crush and we hide
And we fight and we fuck and we make up
And we love and we shove it aside

Years and years you fought
To try to light your darkness with a reason
Maybe a woman someday, maybe even a child
To hold and help and start over again

And we run and we gun and we die young And we curse and we crush and we hide
And we fight and we fuck and we make up
And we love and we shove it aside

Your eyes they shine, they shine from somewhere else
I'm going in and out, I gotta lie down
Never seen a light like that myself

And we run and we gun and we die young
And we curse and we crush and we hide
And we fight and we fuck and we make up
And we love and we shove it aside

Your eyes they shine, they shine from somewhere else
I'm going in and out, I got to lie down
Never seen a light like that myself

Your eyes they shine, they shine from somewhere else

Dispatch Curse + Crush Comments
  1. Tony Allen

    Another emotionally charged song. Right up there with Came for the Fire. This is when Dispatch is at their finest. The importance of these deep songs that emphasize personal relationships cannot be overstated. Keep expressing those cathartic highs and lows via crafty revelations within beautiful songs that Dispatch can do so eloquently.

  2. Jason O. Smith

    This song rotated in on my playlist and I was so stoked to find out it was Dispatch! Way to keep it sooo real. Pure awesomeness.Yall been rocking it all these years too. Must have the best fans. I know I am one.

  3. Yvonne Turner

    WE LOVE AND WE HURT

  4. Roman Jones

    Like your sound and I like that you have a message...something that is missing in a lot of music these days.

  5. Noah McHenry

  6. Koasiwang CJ

    Ooow this is so nice

  7. Noopy Bear

    Really, this is fuckin awesome! I kinda love they are under the radar but know they deserve mad fame

  8. DISPATCH

    "Curse + Crush" is one of the last songs that we demoed for America, Location 12. We remember so specifically when Chad called us saying he had another song that had really just come into focus, and that it carried a particularly special weight and energy. We were excited to give it a listen and agreed that it felt like it had a really unique energy and emotion behind it. Shortly thereafter Chad mentioned that he had written it to honor his cousin Matt.
    Matt died last summer while working road crew in Arizona. He’d spent most of his adult life out west and always met up with us whenever we'd tour out there. He was incredibly strong and could carry a Fender Twin like it was a lunch box. The verse speaks about his life. From the get go, life was not easy for Matt; but he overcame so much and worked so hard to get it on track. It hurts so bad to not have him around anymore. if you loved him, you felt it doubled in return. When he died he left a crater in this world.
    Like many of you who’ve gone through loss, we’re struggling to come to terms with a new reality. There are holes in our hearts that can’t be filled and dreams we dreamed that can no longer happen, but we try to live as Matt would want us to, with the courage that he taught us. We’ll visit with him every time we work our way through this tune - especially at Red Rocks in the land and mountains that he loved.
    Everyone who's pre-ordered the album from our web store should have a "Curse + Crush" MP3 waiting for them in their inbox right now. Let us know if you don't and we'll fix that right away. Everyone else can download it on iTunes, Amazon.com, Bandcamp or stream it on Apple Music and Spotify.
