Massive Attack - Spitting The Atom Lyrics




The baby was born
Nettles and Ferns
The evening it chokes
The candle it burns
This disguise covers
Bitter lies
Repeating the joke
The meaning it dies
Pass me a coat I'm not afraid to leave
I'm letting you know
I know what you need
I'll turn you around
This beautiful town
And then you'll believe it when your eyes then deceive you

Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Don't Lose It

Its getting colder outside
Your rented space
They shadow box and they
Paper chase
It never stops
And we'll never learn
No hope without dope
The jobless return
The bankers have bailed
The mighty retreat
The pleasure it fails
At the end of the week
You take it or leave
Or what you receive
To what you receive
Is eternited leave

Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Its easy, dont let it go
Don't lose it

Incandescent light at doors
In adolescent menopause
In little clicks you got the music stops
The needle sticks and the penny drops
The summer's gone before you know
The muffled drums of relentless flow
You're looking at stars that give you Vertigo
The sun's still burning and dust will blow
Honey scars I'll keep you near
Our blood is gold nothing to fear
We killed the time and I love you dear
A kiss of wine we'll disappear
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible

    You're uploading so many awesome videos these days that I have to struggle not to cry. We really missed you guys at Madcool.

  51. TrippyNight Inc.

    I loved this version more than the original one

    Cristina F.

    TrippyNight Inc. What original version?

    TrippyNight Inc.

    The "Corrida de Toros" one. Just search Massive Attack - Splitting the Atom on YouTube and you'll find it.

    Anne-Victoria

    actually this one was posted years ago before corrida... am i wrong ?

    TrippyNight Inc.

    I don't know, but here in YouTube the both versions was uploaded this year. But the original releases in 2008-9 I don't know wich one was released first, but is hightly possible this version was really released after the corrida, or original version.

    TrippyNight Inc.

    I'm talking about the music video not the music. It's clearly visible that in both videos the song is absolutly the same, but the video isn't! Just think a little bit.

  52. Barbara Cosmic

    Thank you ♡

  53. Natashya Marques

    Another awesome attack!!!

  54. Naj Em

    yeah yeah art attacks

  55. Jen V.
