The Afghan Whigs – Jyja Lyrics

The Afghan Whigs – Jyja Lyrics

Brother
Now we must seek the light
Want you to believe
Get off your knees
For it is time for us to fight
The numbers
As we plunder
Inexorable heights
Each drop is a seed
As you bleed
Whatever gets you thru the night

Look for the evidence
Forget the etiquette
I like to know where I’m going
Slip thru the trees
An invisible breeze
I am perpetual motion

Now we shall see
What it will be
And if the people are buying

Look for the evidence
Forget the etiquette
I’m coming home

Lover
Your sleepy eyes
They watch over me
Effortlessly
As the numbers synchronize

But I know
Misbehavior
And I know what I like
I’m copping a feel
As I reveal
My surreptitious appetite

Look for the feminine
She is the medicine
I like to know where I’m going
Slip into the stream
You are the dream
I am the river that’s flowing

Now we shall see
What it will be
And if the people are crying

Look for the evidence
Forget the etiquette
I’m coming home
