This Unrest LyricsEdit


♪♫This Unrest Lyrics♫♪

This unrest beats out my breath Disconnected thoughts jangle in a mess This unrest crucifies my chest Without anaesthetic it cuts Through tumorous flesh

This unrest beats out my breath... This unrest beats in my chest Discordant limbs watch unimpressed At the aimless walk the mindless talk The pictures leap out and dance for me They laugh at me

As your bitterness closes in You're feeling very old again Ah just to sleep, without these thoughts But the angels shout, resurrecting doubts

Ah we meet again, my trusty friend Demanding new favours for old time's sake Inside this captive frame Come and claim your liberty

Metal and flesh will fuse today These visions jump out and blast my days Clean away...
