ATONE

I’ve looked into your mind for the very last time
My senses numb with the knowledge of my crime
And I have contemplated race and the grace that forms distaste
With the knowledge that all of your anger’s misplaced

And I’m killing something and that something is you (yeah)
Are we more than an animal abused?

You’re killing something , that something is you (yeah)
And is it true that the something’s just an animal abused?

Breaking down is such an easy thing to do,
I said, ‘look at we two. And know is solitude the call?
And there is something in the way you misconstrue (I said) simple truth.
You’ll use my memory like a tool , like a tool !’shouts the fool.

I’ve looked into your mind for the very last time
World is crashing down on these sense of mine
We contemplated race and grace and the forms of distaste, misplaced.
With the knowledge that all of our angers misplaced.

‘N we’re killing something and that something ‘s we two
Is the memory just a tool to reuse?

Breaking down is such an easy thing to do,
I said, ‘look at we two. And said is solitude our call?
And there is something in the way you misconstrue (I said) simple truth.
We’ll use the memory like a tool, like a tool!’
Shouts the fool!
Shouts the fool!

If breaking down is something only the lonely do
Well running from redemption is the coward inside you
No vision for the future screams emotional abuse
But in a poisoned irony the words came spilling from you

You know you must atone to grow
(You must atone to grow)
You must atone to grow (ah ah)
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

Singing in the essence (essence)
Springing from; to me (to me)
She looked into my eyes she said,
‘Get away for me!’

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
atone to grow
tone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

Tone to grow oh oh oh ohhh

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow you must atone to know

ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah) ATONE!! (oh aoh ah)

You know you must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow
You must atone to grow

Atone to grow , Atone to grow, Atone to grow, Atone to grow!

about

Ravensong Luxembourg

Ravensong is an eclectic, one man, solo project, with a focus on alt rock and rhythm. I have written songs for years and love the art and craft of it. I am interested in dynamics and crescendo and a touch of rule breaking in structure and approach. Hypnotic grooves and thoughtful lyrics that are often ironic and layered finish of the sonic scapes I try and create on a bed of rock!!- Enjoy! :) ... more
