Killer's Lullaby

This song is by Faithless and appears on the album Sunday 8 PM (1998).

I'm sittin' at a coffee table, unable to see straight
Watchin' parallel lines unwind and undulate
Behind the rain-streaked windowpane, the scene's bleak
Another train leavin' home
Conceding defeat with a low moan

Hangin' in a sky, made o' stone
Everybody's leavin' home, I called my man Jerome
To come meet me in the twilight zone
Leave your mobile phone at home and come alone

I bought him coffee and a snack
Settled back, started speakin'
He was tweakin' with the peak of his cap
While I'm seekin' to discover what it takes to stay sober
Not cover my mistakes
Try to maybe make sense of the evidence
It's over, she's gone for good
Why should I lie, singin' a killer's lullaby
Identified by the dying ring of her goodbye
The last thing you hear before your life disappear

Now, it just gets worse, like my stomach'll burst
Feel like I been cursed
With seven centuries of bitter memories
Inadequacies an' previous he's 'n she's
I move 'round this old house for the last time
Scene of my past crimes, been here for lifetimes
Hearin' the chimes of the old clock that used to mock
You got eternity for takin' stock
This place is like a padlock
You look shocked
Trust me, nothin' ever moves but the dust
There's just us and I'm here to torment and tease
And that's how it was for centuries
Me and my memories, till you brought the keys
Took a couple of Saturdays
I moved in, runnin' from tragedies and boozin'
Seven hundred years since I came here
You appear, same hair, same quizzical stare
I couldn't get near
And the sheer frustration was more than I could bear
I was really cursed, thought I'd been through the worst part
That was just the first part, just the start
Every night I'd be sittin' with dread, breakin' my heart
In case the man she'd been chasin' gets to first base
And I just can't escape, I'm in bad shape
You making love to someone else is more than I can take
And so I make all the movement I can to no avail
Scream and yell, sinkin' deeper into my personal hell

I'm gettin' heated, I'm sorry, have another coffee
I needed to release my sparrow chest from just a piece of this pressure
Unless an escape route is found
I'm goin' down underground
Into lifetimes of pain, it's absurd
The heaviest chain is contained is the sound of one word
So, I'm referred back to hell, huh
Just as well, I hate needles an' get twinges at the thought of syringes

J, I'm going insane with shame
I dream I watch her makin' love over and over again
With what I call a farmer's swain
Unintelligent, pea-brained, retard whose dick is always hard
Oh, God, of course I'm jealous, fellas, oversexed, flexin' his pecs
Jesus, what's he goin' make her do nex'?
I'm mad vex
The way she gently scratches his chest
Used to do that to me back in 1253
Pity me, while you lie with your lover
I stare and suffer in despair while you ruffle his hair
Unaware of who else is there

I move quick, I wanna try my trick one last time
You know it's possible to vaguely define my outline
When dust move in the sunshine
So, I'm tryin' to change, vibrate myself to near-human pitch
Which remind me how I used to come unstitch
And switch 'round the house in a blind rage
It took years and an ocean of tears to find the key to this cage
And write another stage into the new age
's difficult to gauge
But I know that I'll see you again, on that you may depend
I just don't know how or when
Sleep on, my lost love, I'm gone

Jerome took me home under steel skies
Knowing I'm prone to dramatise but unknown for tellin' lies
And what I verbalise he can see behind my eyes
The "why, oh, why's" that identify killer lullabies
And he surmise

No surprise, couldn't hear dat
Close my eyes as he steered that old black BM home again
Not knowing how and not knowing when
