Lyrics

I've seen the world's most beautiful women undress in ordinary solitude
I've fallen asleep in the shift of distant satin
I've watched the rich risk it all for 15 minutes in a Heathrow bathroom
I've shuddered as an unseen mouth slid down my spine every night

I've seized with the ice cold rage of a lover betrayed, half a million miles away
I've cried so hard for hours and not known why, I never do
I've been knocked down flat by joy that makes my face pulse like a sugar high
I've been cornered by the screams of her body as it freed itself of its mind

I guess you could call them superpowers
But no one is going to save the world with what I've got
An indigo light from silvery towers
Surrounded by rocks and stones as far as the eye can see

I've been lost in a cold white space as an arrogant dream storms in from another life
I've felt the snaps of lines that bind us all to this world
I've felt such unreal pain and not known what to do, it isn't mine
I've stayed awake for weeks and slept for days... not one dream

I guess you could call them superpowers
But no one is going to save the world with what I've got
An indigo light from silvery towers
Surrounded by rocks and stones as far as the eye can see

Under low grey skies
And the razored wind that tears at the walls
