Nowhere Again


Secret Machines are a David Bowiesque in a kind of techno pop-rock style. Here are the lyrics from their song Nowhere Again. Somehow, they seem to express for me, in a prophetic manner, the current state of our beautiful civilization:


cellophane flowers never happened for me
been sleeping the day off
watching the night fall
covering nowhere
filling my time share

there's a woman in the mirror in a firey state
as she motions to me I start turning away
she's lifting her dress up
trying to keep up

oh you'd be surprised
how we race
while our lives

erased

another moon on an everyday night
thinking the morning looking for alright
warming the blood flow
with poison I dont know why

maybe the rain stops following me
dripping the colors
running the daylight
over the cloud burst
hoping they don't burst

right before my eyes
erased
our lies

erased

we know we're lost we're lost we're lost in nowhere now
we know we're lost we're lost we're lost in nowhere now
now we know we're lost in nowhere now

maybe the rain will stop following me
with millions of colors reflected in daylight
right on the kickdrum
turning the sound up full

another alone on an everyday night
I think in the morning I think I'll be alright
watching the blood flow
no wonder I dont know why

theres a woman in the mirror in a firey state
she motions to me I start pulling away
she's lifting her dress up
all the way up

oh don't look surprised
erased
our lives

erased
our lies

erased


God help us.
