lyrics

Hypnagogiacs
In the key of C

Confusion as I open my eyes
Have mercy, what has happened here?
Sirens in the city streets
And the money's all gone
I'm a guilty man
But my conscience is clear
Strange words
A breath in my ear
Mmm...what has happened here?

Who told the cops where to find me?
I don't even know what I've done
Fear in the humid air
And blood on my hands
You want murder?
Man, this is one
A strange heart
A memory undone
Mmm...there ain't nowhere to run

Don't you know... gravity
Is a slow and certain collapse
Let go...memory
The graceful decay of the past

(Instrumental Break)

I've been here before with these people
But this is not how I remember the place
There's a strange light
It don't fall right
Another hollow amnesiac's face

Don't you know... gravity
Is a slow and certain collapse
Let go... memory
The graceful decay of the past

Don't you know... gravity
Gravity can't last
Let go... memory
A shadow that will never be cast
Let go... memory
Ooo...
