The Mars Volta – Vigil Lyrics

The Mars Volta – Vigil Lyrics

I know the way he makes you hide
Even when the dose is fight or flight
And the orbits wait for a perfect name
Clean out the webs he left behind
And if you want, I can bury him out
By the salt of sea, in an empty grave
The past has a way of comin’ clean

 If I didn’t know any better
I could have sworn you said
“There will come a day for his reckoning”
It’s the want of the weight when it crushed
All the centrifugal ways our lives fall in and out of place

 One day you’re gonna see
That everybody who claimed that you were loved have left
Because one by one, they would disappear
Claimin’ all your wolves were symptoms of deceit

 “Don’t let your tongue slit your throat”
That’s what they always said
This one last chance that you’ve gotta take

 It’s the want of the weight when it crushed
All the centrifugal ways our lives fall in and out of place
No-oh, it’s the want and the weight when it crushed
All the centrifugal ways our lives fall in and out of place

 Underneath your doubt laid a serpent’s egg
Hissing his way out
You were told (You were told)
Severed tongues (Severed tongues)
Can’t fall onto their swords, because
You’re the only voice that calls
It’s the want and the weight when it crushed
All the centrifugal ways our lives fall in and out of place
Oh-oh, it’s the want and the weight when it crushed
All the centrifugal ways our lives fall in and out of place

 I’ll be with you
Say you will, say you will, say you will
I’ll be with you, I’ll be with you
Say you will, say you will
