Odette - Lotus Eaters Lyrics




The plants grew along the road like an unquenchable wildfire
I remember the times you used to think I was high
But I was too busy watching the waves of emotion crash over people like the tides in the ocean
Push and pull
All you wanted was one more dance
I must confess I had no chance
To renew myself or redo myself, you think I'm a crazy mess
Well,
I agree

And you wanted to know but I had not answer for you
Trapped under the thermometer
Temperature 102
Give me life, give me love, give me lust
I'm sorry I know I ask for too much
That's because I know
It will never be enough

I remember when your hand drew circles on mine
Your skin was cold
We were battling time
I never thought I'd become something that I'm not
But everyone does, everyone does
You think I'm crazy?
I think you think I'm crazy
Well I guess I am I am certainly not a lady
But please court me
Tell me you adore me
Tell me there's nothing wrong I'm a perfect human being but
You never reciprocated my desires
Even when we forced it
We always knew we'd be the liars who lied
Too often, too much, too heavy
I'm sorry I never put you first
I really hope you get me

And you wanted to know but I had no answer for you
Trapped under the thermometer
Temperature 102
Give me life, give me love, give me lust
I'm sorry I know I ask for too much
That's because I know
It will never be enough
It will never be enough

So I guess the moral to the story
There's no morals and no story
In your iris lies the answer
Don't focus on the black centre
Hurricanes can wash away the sins
That you perceive as, to be sins
My sins are spots and curls and skin

I'm sorry
You know I'm sorry
I never meant to alarm thee and I know you're not as strong as you think
You're not a diamond warrior
Your feet grow roots into the earth
And I'm a tree as well but I'm growing much further away from you
No one hears us
No one hears the words we scream
They're just whispers
Nightmares that scare little children in the dark
Under the bed is where it's hidden
In the dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark
Keep me awake
I'm scared to fall asleep
You used to make flowers fall slowly from the ceiling
It was magic
Some kind of superhuman I can't hold it in
Bursting with light but to keep me away from the heat of the fire
I left

And if you still want to know
I still have no answer for you
Trapped under the thermometer
Temperature 102
I'll give you life, I'll give you love, I'll give you lust
I'm sorry I know I ask for too much
That's because I know it will never be enough
It will never be enough
It will never be enough

    My name is mad jack (Marc Hanson) I believed we touched in the heart when I was in a hard place (Bathurst acmu prison) and I depicted your siloette in tempura you have offered to me and I thankyou for your gift of your self in art. I believe you had a sniffle at the time maybe a bit more than that.

  12. Sharma ;

    This is an experience. That's all I can say.

  13. Aadi A

    If you were wondering about the meaning of the title (like I did before googling it), it refers to a race of people in Greek mythology known as the lotus-eaters. They lived on an island abundant with lotus plants. "The lotus fruits and flowers were the primary food of the island and a narcotic, causing the inhabitants to sleep in apathy." (Wikipedia).
    When Odette says "I remember the times you used to think I was high" (0:04) she refers to herself once being a lotus eater, and therefore as unemotional and apathetic.
