how long
(marr, sumner, bartos)



i’d satisfy your every wish

but i can’t be a part of this

you’ll never forgive me

but what do i care?



i’d like to stay but it can’t be

it’s kind of juvenile of me

there’s something i’m missing

why can’t we agree?



i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on

i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on



i know i tried to change my mind

so much of you i can’t define

whenever you’re near me

whatever you do



i’d fall apart when you’re not there

i couldn’t leave, i wouldn’t dare

you’re always within me

whatever you do



i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on

i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on



i lied to you, it was a sin

so please forgive me once again

i’ll never betray you

as long as you’re there



i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on

i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on



i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on

i heard this sound for a thousand years

such a sad song, it goes forever on

raise the pressure

comment
although raise the pressure is more than enjoyable to listen to from beginning to end, the parts are quite clearly greater than the whole. how long is a good example of this: with its breathless pop momentum it works well as the penultimate track, yet has little in the way of lasting potency in relation to what’s come before, unlike some distant memory or flicker. still, taken on its own merits it’s great, the only questionable elements being marr’s over-grungy guitar sound and one too many choruses. the karl bartos track without a trace of emotion, released in 2013, features the same introductory riff, as well as a title almost identical to the opening line of until the end of time.
