Nothing But Thieves - Particles Lyrics




It's been like a year since I've been home
Flirting with an addiction I can't shake off

My mouth is dry, I self medicate
This comedown won't cure itself
It's driving you away
It's driving you away
Piece by piece
Day by day

Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
And if I need to rearrange
My particles
I will for you
My particles
I will for you

And I'm a shadow of a ghost
It's feeling as if somebody has taken host

Babe I don't want to make a scene
But I get self-destructive
And it's driving you away
It's driving you away
Piece by piece
Day by day

Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
And if I need to rearrange
My particles
I will for you

Oh doctor please
This don't feel right
Oh can't you give me something
To get me through the night
Oh if it all falls apart
And if this thing goes wrong
Oh put me back together
However you want
My mind plays tricks
And I don't sleep no more
Doctor, please
I can't switch off

Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
And if I need to rearrange
My particles
I will for you
My particles
I will for you

    This song is semply perfect, it's been on top of my playlist for 2 years and will continue to be till I die ❤

  11. Ehmel Maglasang

    Seriously I've been listening to this song for like 2 years now and to be honest way back then this scares me cuz i'm always floating around in fantasy doing leisure and always wondering it's my addiction and couldn't hold in reality for a couple of days and i know this song is so real and maybe that's why i'm scared to listen to it back then cuz i feel like whenever i'm listening to this song i will do something self destructive and now i just realize something it was telling me i'm losing myself even though i don't feel like and it did the opposite when i'm not listening i'm doing self destructive and i could tell right now my emotions are blunt but thankfully my mind right now is bearing with me my mind is so tricky that i couldn't really focus on what i'm really trying to say but i'm crying.and pissed i should have realize it sooner that i was in denial and not knowing i was grieving for keep losing my self piece by piece day by day cuz really it's been really a very long time since i felt home and now i'm doubting that i don't really know what home feels like. but one thing sure in me i know i was always strange that i kinda hang on with it and wasn't able to express my whole self for once and being at peace that there's a hollow in me i hope the rain s criying now. And if you're reading this i'm not already dead just searching :) keep fighting

    [Verse 1]
    It's been like a year since I've been home
    Flirting with an addiction I can't shake off
    My mouth is dry, I self medicate
    This comedown won't cure itself

    [Pre-Chorus]
    It's driving you away
    It's driving you away
    Piece by piece
    Day by day

    [Chorus]
    Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
    And if I need to rearrange
    My particles
    I will for you
    My particles
    I will for you

    [Verse 2]
    And I'm a shadow of a ghost
    It's feeling as if somebody has taken host
    Babe, I don't wanna make a scene
    But I get self-destructive

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And it's driving you away
    It's driving you away
    Piece by piece
    Day by day

    [Chorus]
    Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
    And if I need to rearrange
    My particles
    I will for you

    [Bridge]
    Oh, doctor please
    This don't feel right
    Oh, can you give me something
    To get me through the night?
    Oh, if it all falls apart
    And if this thing goes wrong
    Oh, put me back together
    However you want

    My mind plays tricks
    And I don't sleep no more
    And doctor, please
    I can't switch off

    [Chorus]
    Baby, tell me if I'm being strange
    And if I need to rearrange
    My particles
    I will for you
    My particles
    I will for you

    This song makes my hairs stand up on end, can’t stop listening to it

  57. Sarah Young

    I heard this band for the very first time last week; they’ve totally blown my mind. I can’t stop listening. Going through a dark time and their music has literally picked me off the floor and given me the strength I need to get through. I’m absolutely blown away by them, Conner’s voice is out of this world and so diverse and their songs are so so powerful. Never been so besotted with a band since I was a teenager, that excitement and thrill pulling you into another dimension, that’s what they do! Thanks NBT - you’ve brought me back from the darkness 💙

    "I'm still searching
    not blindly but willingly blind because I was afraid to label life a certain way
    it's beautiful if you base yourself on the spectrum forums of every possible cell

    vision
    wonder"

    The juxtaposition of the two images of Conor at the end of the song. The noise and the silence, the in-between. Phenomenal.
