an affinity for exuberance lyrics – enslavement of beauty

Loading...

a wounded soul leaps highest
i’ve heard the poet tell
’tis but the ecstasy of death
and then the breath is still
as i lay, defeated, i’m dying
longing to have you near
as i lay, defeated, i’m dying
longing to have you here
the smitten soul that gushes
the trampled heart that springs
a wearied ghost that keeps running
from where the torment stings

mirth is the prelude to anguish,
and laughter is it’s final aim
lest some f-cker spot the wicked
and do not fail to exclaim!
as i lay, defeated, i’m dying
longing to have you near
as i lay, defeated, i’m dying
longing to have you here
success is counted sweetest
by those who never succeed
to comprehend a fame like this
requires sorest need

not one of all those f-ckers
who rose the flag today
can even tell the definition of fame
so pure, of victory
