Big Jesus

Oneiric

Lyrics


SP

Time bends away
It’s such a shame to hear you say
Leave your thoughts at the door

Don’t think, put your mind away
Let it all fade

The ends may fray
And who’s to blame for when you say
Lay your dreams on the floor

Don’t think, put your mind away
Let it all fade

 

 

Always

Could this all be nothing at all
The apartment walls see it all

Always sleepless thinking of it
Always

Some sleight of hand lights up your eyes
Some treaded thought to lay beside

Always sleepless thinking of it
Always

 

 

Lock & Key

Today, what should be locked down instead is floating
The space between my heart and head, it is growing
And doubts are seeping slowly

Don’t leave me loveless

Today, what should be my key opens nothing
The words between my heart and mouth keep cementing
My head is filling slowly

Don’t leave me loveless
Your lock hangs there looming
Don’t leave me loveless

The key is turning slowly

Don’t leave me loveless
Your lock hangs there looming
Don’t leave me loveless

 

 


Floating Past You

It’s all falling down
Past lives and ash on the ground

Don’t say anything

I’m floating
I’m floating past you

When I thought out loud
Never thought it’d make that sound
You think I’m careless, but I’m careful not to worry

Don’t say anything

I’m floating
I’m floating past you

 

 


Fader

Our cards laid out
Our cares, they fade out

I don’t want to go back to knowing what it’s like on my own
On my own

We own our doubts
We’ve paid to buy them out
Stones thrown in the past won’t shatter what we have

I don’t want to go back to knowing what it’s like on my own
On my own

Oneiric undertones to what I know is real
Dream-like, there in the light
It’s hard believing still

I don’t want to go back

I don’t want to go back to knowing what it’s like on my own
On my own

 

 


Shards

Floating through voids, drift without life
No ground to stand on 

Feeling nervous, all alone
I can't shake it
Is it supposed to last this long?
I don't know, I just want to go back

Floating through voids, drift without life
Through shards of space and time

Feeling nervous, all alone

 

 


Oneirica

We dream of the things that we see with our eyes wide open
I've dreamt that I can't escape
I've dreamt of infinite space

And you're there, in that dress from last year

We don't have to wake up now, pull the shades down darling

I've been something terrible, I've been your only constant
I called on the phone when I was dying
The rings echoed forever

And you're there, with red lips and your dark hair

My mind knows she's the only one

And you're there, but only when I'm dreaming

 

 


Shrimp

I never said I’m sorry to you
We never said it, we never had to
But that’s all gone, it’s gone

Weighed down by the lunar pull
Allison, it’s not like you, I know
A burdened mind, I understand
Another reason to take my hand just one last time

Taken by the waves
Stretched out thin, you’re luminescent
Feel the ocean floor as we lay down upon it

We looked up at all the stars
Like the first night on your rooftop, we laid
It’s not enough, I understand
You can’t control it, despite your plan
Let’s forget that now

Taken by the waves
Stretched out thin, you’re luminescent
Feel the ocean floor as we lay down upon it

We go out and around where the ocean swallows the sun
The moon pulls the waves that push the air in our lungs

Feel the ocean floor
Lay down

 

 


Felt in Reverse

Felt in reverse
It’s deafening when you leave
And the echoes all recede

Oh you watch as I wait for something right to say
Walk in circles backwards to get there faster

Fell into you
It’s all the things that came before
All the things you can’t ignore

Oh you watch as I wait for something right to say
Walk in circles backwards to get there faster

 

 


Heaviest Heart

I saw a phantom standing in the rain
A mirrored image where the street was wet
And now I know it was all inside myself
I'll reform my concepts, reset the mind

The weight of what we've come to know so deeply
It's what I carry, the heaviest heart
The weight grows, but so do I
Burdensome, but it's tamed

Gold Forever


tell me the feelings
you've tangled in your mind
show me the meaning

a change of the seasons
I'm left to wonder why
show me the reasons

tell me softly, every word
everything inside your head
put it on me, I don't mind
we can be gold forever

I'm looking hard
to find where I'm facing

I see the spaces
I see the reason why
show me the traces

tell me softly, every word
everything inside your head
put it on me, I don't mind
we can be gold forever

we can be gold forever
