Alexander - Truth - Alexander Ebert
This is one of the vocalists from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This song is moving, and rather powerful.
"The truth is that I never shook my shadow, every day he’s trying to trick me into doing battle.
He’s calling out faker, trying to get me rattled.
Wants to pull me back behind the fence with the cattle.
Building your lenses. Digging your trenches.
Put me on the front line, leave me with a dumb mind with no defenses, but your defense is if you can’t stand to feel the pain then you are senseless.
I’ve grown up some
Different kind of fighter
And when the darkness come let it inside you
Your darkness is shining
My darkness is shining
Have faith in myself
I’ve seen a million numbered doors on the horizon
Now which is the future you choosen before you gone dying.
I’ll tell you ‘bout a secret I’ve been underminding
Every little lie in this world come from dividing
Say you’re my lover, say you’re my homie,
Tilt my chin back slit my throat take a bath in my blood get to know me
All out of my secrets
All my enemies are turning into my teachers.
Because, lights blinding, no way dividing what’s yours or mine when everything’s shining
You darkness is shining my darkness is shining
Have faith in ourselves
Yes I’m only loving, only trying to only love
That’s what I’m trying to do is only loving
Yes I’m only lonely loving feeling only loving
Till I’m feeling only loving
Ya say it ain’t loving ain’t loving my loving
But I’m only loving only loving only loving
Only loving the truth.”
For a little while, I listened to this song almost every day.
