Desperation

from Limboland by The Stanfields

/

lyrics

Am I a lover?
Am I a breeder?
Lost in the details
Raised on the bomb
Stuck on the ceiling
Making up someone’s numbers
For an overdose

That's the sound of desperation
That's the sound of desperation
A violent equation from the cloud
That’s the sound of desperation
That’s the sound of desperation
A federation craving something loud
From a tone that someone paid to play
On a martyr’s radio

Struck by the lightning
Bored by the thunder
Somebody’s feelings
Were hurt by a post
Empty of meaning
But chock-full of stones and daggers
That were thrown by a ghost

That’s the sound of desperation
That's the sound of desperation
A violent presentation for the crowd
That’s the sound of desperation
That’s the sound of desperation
Panic and persuasion playing loud
From a tone that someone paid to play
On a martyr’s radio

Am I a lover? Am I a breeder?
Am I a vampire or succulent bleeder?
I would be anything
For anyone - at any time - in any place
Be a bright light in a briefcase
Or a fighter for a safe space
For the hopeless - for the punters
For the gatherers and the hunters
The desperate many holding on tonight.
For the desperate many holding on tonight
For the desperate many holding on tonight
