Riverside - The Depth Of Self-Delusion Lyrics




I could be foreign forever
To your otherland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your promiseland

One life was great but another
No, I don't want to live
On the edge
I won't follow you
I found my own
I will stay

I could be foreign forever
To your hasteland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your neverland

One little brick then another
And I will build that wall
Anyway
You can find me there
Rested and calm
Without mask
This is where I will stay

Look around - where we are, who we are, what we always want
Twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five, sometimes little more
I was chasing your shadow not knowing I'd become your slave

I could be foreign forever
To your otherland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your promiseland

One life was great but another
No, I don't want to live
On the edge
I won't follow you
I found my own
I will stay
I could stay forevermore

I've said a farewell
To never-ending smiles
I did not look good in red
From my place
I can finally
See how much
Of this shade
I called
Myself
Was me
And what was left behind

I could be foreign forever
To your otherland
I could be foreign forevermore
To your promiseland

One life was great but another
No, I don't want to live
On the edge
I won't follow you
I found my own
I will stay
I could stay forevermore

I've said a farewell
To never-ending smiles
From my place I can finally see how much
Of this shade
Was me
And what was left behind

Riverside The Depth Of Self-Delusion Comments
  1. Doug Reed

    This is a monumental band, every bit as good as porcupine tree.

  2. Adrian Cojocaru

    This band is huge! Love from Romania!

  3. vasiliki Louk

    what a waltz... <3

  4. Влад Гуменюк

    Yessssss !!!!!

  5. demorez5

    i am surprised this is riverside's most popular song, at least on youtube. for me this whole album went kinda unnoticed.

  6. Pao Gallegos

    Los amo! Gracias por hacer una cancion para cada momento de mi vida!

  7. purple rain

    Found this band after listening to an interview with Jinjer. They are amazing, can't stop listening to this song!

  8. Arkadiusz

    Piękny utwór. Ale cała płyta "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" jest cholernie dobra. Obecnie jej z dorobku Riverside najprzyjemniej mi się słucha. Ale to się zmienia. Za miesiąc, gdy będę potrzebował wewnętrznego wstrząsu, może to być "Anno Domini High Definition" :-)

  9. Kate Murphy

    Very unfortunately, You Tube kicked me off this channel; when I tap on‘subscribe’ I receive error messages.

  10. Job Jig

    That's why the honey trap failed...

    Job Jig

    It failed mostly because your self delusions!!!
    And it will fail continually until you finally wake up!...
    But that is the big problem... you will never wake up!!! Your mental disease seems to be incurable...

  11. LEONIBAS

    Piotr's work on this one was phenomenal. So elegant and sophisticated, yet passionate and powerful !

  12. Kamila Pawlak

    Świetnie się tego słucha,ale .. czy jest ktoś jeszcze tutaj kogo drażni/ komu nie pasuje fragment 1:20 - 1:28? :) niby krótko to trwa, ale jakbym mógł to za każdym razem bym sobie to wyciszał.

  25. Ola Grochala

    Such a beautiful song.... I can now after listening that song fly high <3 so I am in heaven :D

  32. David Thomas

    What a total beautiful song. Much love to these Polish geniuses

    Pawel Szubra

    unfortunately underrated in Poland, probably my best song of them, but of prog rock - Collage- Moonshine, as the album too - recommend.
    As it comes to British most underrated band for me, even half centoury past is Wishbone Ash, especially thers Persphony.
    Greetings to all you listening the music with sense, addressed deeply to the soul, not sponsored pop

  33. Druh Andruh

    Muzyka wydaje się jakby była tworzona przez lata

  34. Romulus Romulus

    This is pure bliss, a real pleasure to hear music which has a soundstage of feelings and depth...

  35. Jonnie Stanneveld

  36. Jizzy Mc_Guyre

    Whoever thumbed down this song can rot in the depths of self delusion.

  37. Jesús Araujo

    Es hermoso este tema. Una mezcla entre esperanza y nostalgia

  38. Maria Maruszka

    Dopiero się zorientowałam, że to polski zespół! Świetne! Mamy porządny rock progresywny <3

  61. Sara Wojeciechowska

    wszyscy, którzy dziwicie się, że nie ma Tego w radio, przestańcie słuchać gównianych rozgłośni. W liście przebojów programu III PR utwór ten był kilka tygodni na 1 miejscu i w ogóle TRZEBA SŁUCHAĆ DOBREGO RADIA, a nie radii promujących shit.
