Manchester Orchestra – The Silence Lyrics

The Silence by Manchester Orchestra
Album : A Black Mile to the Surface
Released : 2017
Genre : Alternative Rock

Why do I deserve the science
to feel better about you?
At a loss I lost my cool
I denied that I found you

I tried to be a basket case
I did not surprise you
I’m trying to find a signal fire
Let me know when I should move

But you, amplified in the silence
Justified in the way you make me bruise
Magnified in the science
Anatomically proved that you don’t need me

Why do I desire the space?
I was mourning after you
I was lost and lost my shape
There was nothing I could do

I don’t want to waste away
It was all I gave to you
Take me back and take my place
I will rise right up for you

But you, amplified in the silence
Justified in the way you make me bruise
Magnified in the science
Anatomically proved that you don’t need me

All the while you waste away, you’re asking
“Did I really need another one to take me down?”
Everybody knows it’s something that you had to live with darling
Nobody’s gonna tear you down now
There is nothing you keep, there is only your reflection

There was nothing but quiet retractions
And families pleading, “Don’t look in that cabinet, there’s far more bad than there’s good, I don’t know how it got there”
That was something your father had burned in me
Twenty hours out of Homestake eternity
You can go anywhere but you are where you came from

Little girl you are cursed by my ancestry
There is nothing but darkness and agony
I can not only see, but you stopped me from blinking
Let me watch you as close as a memory
Let me hold you above all the misery
Let me open my eyes and be glad that I got here

● “Virgin ”

[ Quotable ]
I’m gone
You tried to emphasize and side with both your ghosts
In time I swore I’d take the straight and narrow path but still won’t
I hold his ear I’m only trying to do my job tonight
Kiss him on top his lips and crucify the fire

● “I Can Feel a Hot One ”

[ Quotable ]
I remember head down after you had found out
Manna is a hell of a drug
I need a little more I think
Because enough is never quite enough
What’s enough?
