In Conflict

This song is by Owen Pallett and appears on the album In Conflict (2014).

Spun out on the highway, the car inverted
What are you but a drum and a tube and a wire, black heart?
A fire in the dark?
A fire in the dark?

I have no statement for your benefit, young man
Except this: we all will live again in the eyes of an actor
And the light on the glass
So let me see that ass, hey hey hey!

Sorceress, Valkyrie, you let, you let yourself believe
Sorceress, come clean, you let, you let yourself believe
There is nothing to lose
There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to lose
There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to lose

Remember when you told me all about your father-ghost?
He whispers at you when you try to pull
"You're an imbecile and your limbs carry lumber"
Your limbs carry lumber

The shadow of violence is the shepherd of sense
The shadow of violence is the shepherd of sense and when I hit the fence
I had a hand on the wheel, and a hand on the dial
Man on trial, hey hey hey!
Man on trial

Sorceress, Valkyrie, you let, you let yourself believe
Sorceress, come clean, you let, you let yourself believe
There is nothing to lose
There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to lose
There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to lose
Hey hey hey!
