​You're Listening To A Dead Man Speak

This song is by Clann Zú and appears on the album Rua (2003).

They say true understanding
Only comes when you're alone
Well, here you'll find me standing
Lacerated to the bone

I'm lacerated to the bone
I never learn from my mistakes

I should have kept my distance,
Should have left well enough alone
And now I watch you feed me
The last remnants of my soul

I'm lacerated to the bone
I never learn from my mistakes

From your mouth, your words escape,
From the ground, you walk away

I'm lacerated to the bone
I crawl across this concrete floor
I hear me say, "I should have known
I've seen this happen all before"
I'm breathing in this vacant hole
Where no one comes and no one knows

I should have seen the weeping walls
And closed my ears to desperate thoughts
And now I'm breathing in this hole,
A strange corner far from hope

A headcrush man with hopeless fears
I should have known to leave this place
This bitter air this vacant space
I should have left without a trace

I should have run when you touched me,
A perfect touch laced with defeat,
A single touch to make me weak
You're listening to a dead man speak

I never learned from my mistakes
You're listening to a dead man speak
I never learned from my mistakes
You're listening to a dead man speak.

(I should have fuckin' known)

You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak

You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak
You're listening to a dead man speak
