​Centipede

This song is by Josh Homme, Chris Goss, Dave Grohl and Alain Johannes and appears on the movie soundtrack Sound City: Real to Reel (2013).

This is goodbye
Goodbye to all those little crimes
Screaming inside
It ain't enough to turn the tide

Just so

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive

Alive

Foolish, I know
The bread crumbs all were all devoured
After charades
I love the way you wear your face

Just so

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive

Climb the same old wall
To the top and fall
Again

Can you hear me call
In the hopes they'll all
Come alive

First sign of a locust swarm
A worried mind; a thunderstorm
Wrapped in heaven's knowing view
The eye of a needle few get through
I saw you sitting in your room
Weaving plans in sorrow's loom
Solace chatter deal in vain
No core no poets to feinds the rain
Of hopeless, dreaming, time disturbed
Friends and family, needling curb
Away in your imagined box
The chains on chains and locks on locks

Take hold of the arms of centipede
A hundred hearts and all you need
A marble Venus works in song
As short in love as life is long

Take hold of the arms of centipede
A hundred hearts and all you need
A Venus marble works in song
As short in love as life is long
