Alarum

This song is by The Tea Party and appears on the album Transmission (1997).

I took a slide, slipping down a staircase
A Piranesian dream
My senses reeled, distorted by the darkness
I lit my way with a scream
And in the rave an alarum caused a cracked mirror
I got confused by the sound
I turned around and touched it from a distance
And then it fell to the ground

Loud cry from the shallows
Lust feeds on the fear
Walls crack under pressure
I think the end is getting near

And in my mind was the fury of a madness
That consecrated the dirt
I stumbled through the enigma of its reason
And celebrated the hurt
And then I found in an act of desperation
A subtle rip in the heart
I was seduced by the taste of devastation
And then it tore me apart

Loud cry from the shallows
Lust feeds on the fear
Walls crack under pressure
I think the end is getting near

Oh no, nothing matters
When it takes me
When it rapes me, breaks me
Shakes me down

A quick escape from the fear of commination
I slept the night with a spleen
A vain excuse, I was searching for some answers
I broke away from the scene
'Cause after all, animality's an instinct
And it's Luxuria's slave
To taste the truth, it's a seizure of the senses
And it's a foot in the grave

Loud cry from the shallows
Lust feeds on the fear
Walls crack under pressure
I think the end is getting near

Oh no, nothing matters
When it takes me
When it rapes me, breaks me
Shakes me down

Oh no, nothing matters
When it takes me
When it rapes me, breaks me
Shakes me down

Oh no, nothing matters
When it takes me
When it rapes me, breaks me
Shakes me down
