​Absence

This song is by O'Brother and appears on the album Disillusion (2013).

There's a wickedness that's in my blood
The precognition of what a terrible mess I'll become
To my dismay I found that a tired tongue won't resonate
Beyond the heresy that I impose

But I couldn't kill a radiant thing
I couldn't kill a radiant thing
I couldn't kill a radiant thing, I know
I couldn't kill a radiant thing

Tear out my eyes
Render me blind, blind, blind
Deliverance lies
In the absence of my my mind.

Take a breath
Try and pretend you didn't hear a thing.

By design I am fated to rely on what I know
To define the endless line of what I don't
And does the application of your moral code alleviate
The overwhelming fear of imminent death.

How could you take a radiant thing?
How could you take a radiant thing?
How could you take a radiant thing?
If you wanna take a radiant thing
Then come and get it.

Tear out my eyes
Render me blind, blind, blind
Deliverance lies
In the absence of my my mind.

Tear out my eyes
Render me blind, blind, blind
Deliverance lies
In the absence of my my my mind.
