IAMX - Song Of Imaginary Beings Lyrics




Her mother said that she couldn't love
The physical way a woman should
Then where else could she go?
Where the sisters and the fathers can't save her soul

Send them in, see them on
She can't find a lover, she'll fashion one
Imaginary men
Like the burned out poets in the hinterland

The phoenix says,
The devil says,
The serpent says,
The siren says,
Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?
Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?

Whyyy?...

The hourglass sees what shelf life does
She asked, exactly tell me
"what is love but grieving life alone?"
Just the words from prophets and religious shows

Imagine hurt, imagine tears
She opened up until she disappeared
Vanished, hand in hand,
With all the long-lost children locked in Neverland

The phoenix says,
The devil says,
The serpent says,
The siren says,
Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?
Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?

The phoenix says
The devil says
The serpent says
The siren says

Oh, the phoenix says
- Burn for me
The devil says
- Lie for me
The serpent says
- Beg for me
The siren says
- Die for me

Oh, the phoenix says
- Burn for me
The devil says
- Lie for me
The serpent says
- Beg for me
The siren says
- Die for me

    Her mother said if she couldn't love
    The physical way a woman should
    Then where else could she go?
    Where the sisters and the fathers can't save her soul

    Send them in, see them on
    She can't find a lover, she'll fashion one
    Imaginary men
    Like the burned out poets in the hinterland

    The Phoenix says
    The Double says
    The serpent says
    The siren says
    Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?
    Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?

    Why?

    The hourglass sees what shelf life does
    She asked, exactly tell me
    "What is love but grieving life alone?"
    Just the words from prophets and religious shows

    Imagine hurt, imagine tears
    She opened up until she disappeared
    Vanished, hand-in-hand
    With all the long-lost children locked in Neverland

    The Phoenix says
    The Double says
    The serpent says
    The siren says
    Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?
    Why use the word, when the word it means to believe?

    The Phoenix says
    The Double says
    The serpent says
    The siren says

    Oh, the Phoenix says
    (Burn for me)
    The Double says
    (Lie for me)
    The serpent says
    (Beg for me)
    The siren says
    (Die for me)

    Oh, the Phoenix says
    (Burn for me)
    The Double says
    (Lie for me)
    The serpent says
    (Beg for me)
    The siren says
    (Die for me)

    Reminds me the character Macabéa from "A Hora da Estrela"

    I never understood what he means by "the double". I used to think that he says "the devil". But the lyrics says "double" and when you listen closely you hear the "b" sound. Any thoughts on what he might mean?

    Nart Haddad

    @Mr. BXX no problem!

    Amira Alkholy

    I like to think of it as a doppelganger sort of thing.

    I always thought he was talking about a doppleganger/shapeshifter type demon. Most legends say that if you meet the eyes of your double you die immediately/within the next few days.

    Riley Kenway

    The song takes inspiration from the Book of Imaginary Beings, and one of the beings is the Doppelgänger, AKA the Double. Sammi Doll, who is now actually part of the band's touring lineup, explained her Song of Imaginary Beings tattoo several years ago on a website that has since been shut down, and she represented the Double/Doppelgänger through two cats.
