music is life, music is breath, music is us

Rob Dickinson-“The End of the World”

“Breathe the air again
It’s a beautiful day
I wish this moment would stay
With the earth
Some primal paradise
There you go again
Saying everything ends
Saying you can’t depend on anything
Or anyone

If the end of the world is near
Where would you choose to be?
If there were five more minutes
Of air
Would you panic and hide?
Or run for your life?
Or stand here and spend them with me?
If we had five more minutes
Would I, could I make you happy?

And we would live again
In the simplest of ways
Living day after day
Like some primal animals
We would love again
In the glorious sense
Were the freedom will come from the truth

If the end of the world is near
Where would you choose to be?
If there were five more minutes
Of air
Would you panic and hide?
Or run for your life?
Or stand here and spend them with me?
If we had five more minutes
Would I, could I make you happy?

So it finally came to pass
I saw the end of the world
I saw the madness unfold
Like some primal burial
I looked back at her
Armageddon
And the moment of truth between her and me

If we had five more minutes
Of air to breathe
And we cried all through it
But you stand here with me
On our last few drags
Of air we agree
I was, you were, happy”

Rob Dickinson is a bloody poet, a musical genius (an uncelebrated one at that).
