Song for Clay (Disappear Here) Songtext

I am trying to be heroic
In an age of modernity
I am trying to be heroic
because all around me history sings

So I enjoy and I devour
flesh and wine and luxury
But in my heart, I am lukewarm;
nothing ever really touches me

At Les Trois Garçons
we meet at precisely 9 o'clock
I order the foie gras
and I eat it with complete disdain
Bubbles rise in champagne flutes
but when we kiss, I feel nothing

Feasting on sleeping pills
and Marlboro Reds
(self-pity won't save you)


Oh how our, our parents, they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80s never happened.
People are afraid, are afraid to merge on the freeway.
Disappear here

We stroll past the queue
into the magazine launch party
I am handed a pill
and I swallow with complete disdain
Kick-drum pounds off the high-hat
Remember to look bored
We suck each others' faces
and make sure we are noticed
(The cocaine won't save you)

Because East London is a vampire
it sucks the joy right out of me
How we long for corruption in these golden years

Oh how our, our parents, they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80s never happened
People are afraid, are afraid to merge on the freeway
Disappear here
Disappear here
Disappear here
Disappear here
Disappear here
