Everything Everything – Night of the Long Knives Lyrics

Night of the Long Knives by Everything Everything
Album : A Fever Dream
Released : 2017

Hold me on this night of the long knives
Hold me on this night of the long knives
It’s coming (Shame about your neighbourhood)
It’s coming (Shame about your neighbourhood)

There’s a flood on the street, there’s a tide and it’s coming in now
Yet the concrete burns at the back of your skull
And they’re saying it’s a wave but it feels like a dribbling now
There’s a light bulb flickering but it never goes on

Yes the bomb may be falling
In the lies where you stood
Man I know it’s a real big shame about your neighbourhood
I’m the wrong kind of people
Why’d you listen to me?
Just the island of breathing in and out
And it was a long time coming
It was a long time coming

It’s coming (Shame about your neighbourhood)
It’s coming (Shame about your neighbourhood)

There’s a car overturned and it isn’t stopping anytime soon
But the front seat sure beats lickin’ some toads
And the sparks make the dark uncanny like a living cartoon
What the hell do you mean when you talk about roads?

Yes the bomb may be falling
Vaporized where you stood
Man I know it’s a real big shame about your neighbourhood
I’m the wrong kind of people
Why’d you listen to me?
Just the island of breathing in and out

And it was a long time coming
It was a long time coming

It’s coming (shame about your neighbourhood)
It’s coming (shame about your neighbourhood)

Hold me on this night of the long knives
Hold me on this night of the long knives
I’ve been dying all my life
I’ve been dying all my life
I’ve been dying all my life
I’ve been dying all my life

It’s coming (shame about your neighbourhood)
It’s coming (shame about your neighbourhood)
It’s coming (it was a long time coming)
It’s coming (it was a long time coming)

● “Distant Past ”

[ Quotable ]
Your body never made it past the snow
Canine fangs up out my throat
You’re bleeding over Eden like a goat
Tall blade, a Triffid in every field

● “Cough Cough”

[ Quotable ]
Just a cog next to a cog next to a pit
I would burn to break away and waste my years
No more ladder, no more solace in arrears

● “Regret”

[ Quotable ]
Maybe I’m a human
The “trying to click ‘undo’ man”
Or maybe an automaton
Oh how’d it all go so wrong?
