Swans - Amnesia Lyrics




The sun is an acid eye
We're corroded with pleasure inside
There's a hole in your thin white skin
Now we'll never be clean again

Our hands are two broken claws
We scrape at the ground for hours
I buried this sound in the floor
To gain control of this feeling

Amnesia

And this city's a crowded room
And the earth is a closing tomb
In my hand is your perfect womb
When you breathe, your breath is obscene

My heart is a lead box
Ideas are shutting locks
The air was just turned off
Now you're sucking from this machine

Amnesia

The sun will not rise today
You children will stay where you lay
The oil is black and it's thick
And sex is a void filled with plastic

The President's mouth is a whore
When there's murder, the audience roars
There's no room left here for the strong
And everything human's necessarily wrong

Amnesia
Amnesia
Amnesia
Amnesia

    [Verse 1]
    The sun is an acid eye
    We're corroded with pleasure inside
    There's a hole in your thin white skin
    Now we'll never be clean again
    Our hands are two broken claws
    We scrape at the ground for hours
    I buried this sound in the floor
    To gain control of this feeling

    [Chorus]
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na

    [Verse 2]
    And this city's a crowded room
    And the earth is a closing tomb
    In my hand is your perfect womb
    When you breathe, your breath is obscene
    My heart is a lead box
    Ideas are shutting locks
    The air was just turned off
    Now you're sucking from this machine


    [Chorus]
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na

    [Verse 3]
    The sun will not rise today
    You children will stay where you lay
    The oil is black and it's thick
    And sex is a void filled with plastic
    The President's mouth is a whore
    When there's murder, the audience roars
    There's no room left here for the strong
    And everything human's necessarily wrong

    [Chorus]
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na
    Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na
    (Na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na)
    Amnesia, na na, na, na na, na, na na, na, na na

  3. Mila Vitrei

    👏👏What a wonderful song, fulfilling

  4. Csaba Balogh

    This reminds me of "Failure" (from the White Light... album)

  5. Malis Saldo

    Without Swans my life woud have been 17% more meaningless.

    Billy Bakas

    Why 17% specifically?

    Арт Гуффович

    but with them, its down all the 34%! (leaving meaning)

  6. Burnout

    Really digging this new version of Amnesia

  7. rol trans

    damn...

  8. Robert Allan

    Such a different take than the Love of Life version. It's great.

  9. Ayyvengo 12

    So far album feels like something Johnny Cash would have covered
