Nellie McKay Absolute Elsewhere Lyrics

Last updated: 06/26/2012 11:00:00 AM

They say minds move mysteriously
Well, I've seen 'em all, and I still don't believe it
In my nightmares, monotonously, they open the door
Set my heart free from dreaming

I never could believe your face
Young and all-consumed by false humility
And I never could believe your eyes
But still, I'm surprised

For it's the real deal
You've stuck the knife in
This is a clean kill
Excellent timing

Wanted the rapture
But lost in the silence
Of absolute elsewhere
Wasn't even somewhere
Go to black

As they mourn and I pick up the phone
And they walk through the door down the hall to the ballroom
Past the servants who beckon and moan
They proffer the floor but my feet keep on fallin'

I never could believe your face
Dumbed and all-consumed by false maturity
I never could believe your eyes
But I've been set wise

For it's the real deal
You've stuck the knife in
This is a clean kill
Excellent timing

Fought in the rapture
Can't tell if I'm in
Absolute elsewhere
Wasn't even somewhere
Go to black

For it's the real deal
You've stuck the knife in
This is a clean kill
Excellent timing

Caught in the rapture and
Lost in the silence
Absolute elsewhere
Wasn't even somewhere
In my nightmares monotonously
