sloth lyrics – brendan perry

sometimes when i’m alone
i imagine that the world is a mirror
and in my mind’s eye behold my dark inner nature

i’ve been wasting time on this time honoured wh*r*
’til i get so confused i can’t see anymore
and i have crawled where i should have seen the signs
dragging my feet when i could have been flying

sometimes when i’m sad
i drink to the health of my torment
and dance at the altar
to the tune of a drunken black tango

i’ve been wasting time on this time honoured wh*r*
’til i get so confused i can’t see anymore
wasted my youth trying to settle old scores
dragging my feet when i could have been flying
dragging my feet when i should have been flying
dragging my feet…
flying…
