AFI – Spoken Word

We held hands on the last night on earth.Our mouths filled with dust,we kissed in the fields and under trees,screaming like dogs,bleeding dark into the leaves.It was empty on the edge of town but we knew everyone floated along the bottom of the river.So we walked through the waste where the road curved into the sea and the shattered seasons lay,and the bitter smell of burning was on you like a disease.In our cancer of passion you said,”Death is a midnight runner.”The sky had come crashing down like the news of an intimate suicide.We picked up the shards and formed them into shapes of stars that wore like an antique wedding dress.The echoes of the past broke the hearts of the unborn as the ferris wheel silently slowed to a stop.The few insects skittered away in hopes of a better pastime.I kissed you at the apex of the maelstrom and asked if you would accompany me in a quick fall,but you made me realize that my ticket wasn’t good for two.I rode alone.You said,”The cinders are falling like snow.”There is poetry in despair,and we sang with unrivaled beauty,bitter elegies ofsavagery and eloquence.Of blue and grey.Strange we ran down desperate steets and curved our names in the flesh of the city.The sun has stagnated somewhere beyond the rim of the horizan and the darkness is a mystery of curves and lines.Still we lay under the emptiness and drifted slowly outward,andsomewhere in the wilderness we found salvation scratched into the earth like a message.

Acesta este un hidden track, de pe albumul Sing the Sorrow a celor de la AFi, din 2003. Hidden trackul asta se afla in „…but home is nowhere” dupa minutul 12. Piesa este incredibil de frumoasa. Si am gasit-o si pe youtube, ca nu ma pricep la audio-hosting. Habar nu am. Enjoy. E magica.
