gorgeous / grotesque lyrics – company of thieves

“gorgeous / grotesque”

there’s nothing more gorgeous or grotesque than the sight of the garbage dumped on the sides of the railroad tracks
in the morning, on my way to work, i see them- little lumps- just glittering in the sunshine
what a messy way to say thank you
what a messy way to say thank you
oh, we need a closeness

there’s nothing more helpless or hopeless than the birds of the city streets, with the dirt on their heavy wings
in the evening, on my way to sleep, i hear them- screaming out into a bitter melody
what a messy way to say thank you
what a messy way to say thank you
oh, we need a closeness

’cause when i wake
i am so far out from reach
i am so far from

we need a closeness, a harmless closeness
oh we need a closeness, a harmless closeness!
