Treasure Island

Carsten Thomsen


Felt my pulse
And God's absence
But didn't care
much about neither.
Drinking to forget, I did,
Pretending I didn't care.

That it didn't matter to me,
The way it does.

And God is away
And I know it
And God is away
and he wont come back
And God is away

And I see it in my reflecting image
As I leave my heart in the sink
And my guts in the toilet bowl

    'And God is away
    And I know it
    And God is away
    and he wont come back
    And God is away'

    And God is away so that he can pave you a way
    breaking away into a way

    Loved your compliance policy with God this time.10++ (Report) Reply
