Tea Party, The - Requiem Lyrics




And you say life is bitter sweet
You've tried so gracefully
But its faceless company has let you down
Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't change your fate

Lost and they set you free
Concerned by what they'd see
And you begged on bended knee
Still they let you down
Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't change your fate

It passes over you
Passes over

Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't changed your fate
It passes over you
Passes over you
Passes over
So soon
This requiem
This requiem
This requiem

    I love the Eastern mystical sound in their music. It's so "out there". These guys deserved far more recognition than they received. They were awesome. Very talented.

    Justin beaver hit the dislike button.

  35. Average Ryan

    first 20 seconds always give me goosebumps.. what's a good word for uplifting melancholy? I'm nowhere near articulate enough to describe this song..

  36. KatKaleen

    Are there other YouTube videos with 0 "don't like"?
    Gosh, this is awesome and holds terrible beauty. I don't want this to be played at my funeral, I want to meet and share my life with somebody who understands this song.

  37. STFUandRTFM

    @WillBad20 Well being an immortal i have to fake my death every 50-60 years and then assume an other identity. And i love that song so why not have it played everytime i die? ;)
