This song is an amazing opening track to what is probably the best album of 2009.
I posted this before I realized all the lyrics were already available…so, might as well get em all here
Oblivion by Mastodon
I flew beyond the sun before it was time,
burning all the gold that held me inside my shell.
Waiting for you to pull me back in,
I almost had the world in my sight.
Lost love. Bright eyes fading faster than stars falling.
How can I tell you that I’ve failed?
Tell you I’ve failed…
Falling from grace, cause I’ve been away too long.
Leaving you behind with my lonesome song -
now I’m lost in oblivion.
I tried to burrow a hole into the ground,
breaking all the fingers and the nails from my hand.
The eyes of the child see no wrong.
Ignorant bliss, impending doom.
