Katatonia - Lacquer lyrics

[Verse 1]
My voice channeling
A circuit's end
The house we lived in
Stricken with blight
Finding ways to kill the pain
(Kill the pain, kill the pain)
Let the river run wild
Dreams shattering
Aerial sound

[Chorus]
Scrape the lacquer
Can't you see it's all tarnished?

[Verse 2]
Tried the poise
To radiate
Tried my words
To illustrate
Finding ways to end the pain
(Ways to end the pain, ways to end the pain)
Let the river run wild
Dreams shattering
Fixing to die

[Chorus]
Scrape the lacquer
Can't you see it's all tarnished?

[Post-Chorus]
The levee breaking
I can't live to fight once more
The levee breaking
I can't live to fight once more

[Bridge]
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I'm just staying around to sing your song, baby
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I'm just staying around to sing your song, baby

[Verse 3]
My voice travelling
Soaring bird above your head
The house we lived in
Ridden with disease

[Chorus]
Scrape the lacquer
Can't you see, it's all tarnished?

[Post-Chorus]
The levee breaking
I can't live to fight once more
The levee breaking
I can't live to fight once more

[Outro]
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I'm just staying around to sing your song, baby
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I'm just staying around to sing your song, baby
