Swans - In The Eyes Of Nature Lyrics




No, we have never been here
And we will never be gone
I saw your voice rise up
And cut into the heart of the sun

I kissed the lips of a girl
She took her first breath when this world was young
I felt the cold of the air
As it burned my empty lungs

And we have never been born and we will be consumed
And unreality is buried here beneath the truth
And though we've never been here, we will never be contained
And unreality is naked here beneath the moon

So we'll go down to the ocean
And wash our memory clean
We'll see the world for the first time
Through an unburied eye

And though the world will stay the same
And we're certain to die
We'll raise our hands up to Heaven
And sacrifice our limitations

And the pain and frustration
Are equal to the bliss of release
And in the eyes of nature
We will live for an eternity

And when we die, we'll disappear
Into the eyes of nature
And we are here just for a little while
And then our body disappears

Into the eyes of nature
Into the arms of God
Into the mouth of indifference
Into the eyes of nature

And we are nothing but experience
In the eyes of nature
And we will live forever
In the eyes of nature

  1. AJtheory

    Here is
    *proof-positive* that
    Michael Gira writes universal/transcendental lyrics (especially during the 90s) and
    should be in the *Smithsonian* ... The man-and-artist is an American *MASTER* ...
    Give the man his due

    Paradise Mind

    AJtheory agreed i pushed for it back in my high school days. I first heard them at a gathering of friends

    [Verse 1]
    No, we have never been here
    And we will never be gone
    I saw your voice rise up
    And cut into the heart of the sun
    I kissed the lips of a girl
    She took her first breath when this world was young
    I felt the cold of the air
    As it burned my empty lungs
    And we have never been born
    And we will be consumed
    And unreality is
    Buried here beneath the truth
    And though we've never been here
    We will never be contained
    And unreality is
    Naked here beneath the moon

    [Verse 2]
    So we'll go down to the ocean
    And wash our memory clean
    We'll see the world for the first time
    Through an unburied eye
    And though the world will stay the same
    And we're certain to die
    We'll raise our hands up to Heaven

    [Outro]
    Into the eyes of nature
    Into the arms of God
    Into the mouth of indifference
    Into the eyes of nature
    And we are nothing but experience
    In the eyes of nature
    And we will live forever
    In the eyes of nature
