haze
(electronic)



upside down



i’m here alone all by myself with no-one else

i need someone to share these thoughts about myself

i don’t know who i can trust

this picture is starting to rust



and as i press upon myself a form of torture

i write these words for someone else, just like an author

i don’t know who i can trust

i don’t know who i can trust



everybody won’t you come with me

we’ll take a ride across the sea

when we get there, if we don’t drown

i’ll turn your whole life upside down



and later on with each illegal breath i take

i lose resistance for an instant to my fate

how i’ll miss you when you are gone, oh yeah

i’m a number lower than one



i’m on my own, i think this stuff is getting stronger

i’m wide awake and i can’t take it any longer

how i’ll miss you when you are gone

i’m a number lower than one



everybody won’t you come with me

help me find what i can’t see

i’m sick of crawling along the ground

help me turn my world around



everybody won’t you come with me

everybody come with me

if i don’t find what i’ve come for

you won’t see me anymore



sometimes it’s hard just to find some peace of mind

it feels like i am going crazy almost all of the time

and if we can’t live this way, then what will i do

like my father and my mother i’m depending on you



you’ve got to fight just to keep your peace of mind

you’ve got to hold on tight, don’t cross that line

sometimes i cry like a baby when i look outside

i’m on a losing streak, driving through moss side



like the river deep or the ocean wide

like the river deep or the ocean wide

like the river deep or the ocean wide

there’s a crack in the wall but i just can’t hide

comment
twisted tenderness hits its stride early on with this heady, confident rock song, which brings together sumner’s recurring themes of isolation, ambivalence and resolution into one intoxicating whole. the poetic strength of the words is indicative of the whole album: there is much more lyrical purpose and inspiration on twisted tenderness than on its occasionally overwrought predecessor. listen to it loud.
