​Badge Of Descension

This song is by Phantom Limb and appears on the album The Pines (2012).

Darkness surrounds me like an old dirty coat
I welcome it home 'cause it helps me to float
Past the windows of kindness to an old dirty joke
That I learned from a long lost friend

It holds me in comfort for a while and then
It takes me to a place where it hurts me to bend
I cry out to god: "Won't you take this away?"
Once again

I feel like a fool for the things that I've done
I blame it on you 'cause I can't be the one
Who puts on the badge of descension and tries to pretend
That I'm not the one who's taken it all on again

It feels so familiar in that old dirty coat
With badness around me tied tight round my throat
Keeps me close to the devil and the things that he wrote
Keep your enemies closer than kin

I feel like a fool for the things that I've done
I blame it on you 'cause I can't be the one
Who puts on the badge of descension and tries to pretend
That I'm not the one who's taken it all on again
