Anesthetize Lyrics - Porcupine Tree



Review The Song (1)


ANESTHETIZE

A good impression of myself
Not much to conceal
I'm saying nothing
But I'm saying nothing with feel

I simply am not here no way I...
Shut up be happy stop whining please

And because of who we are
We react in mock surprise
The curse of "there must be more"
So don't breathe here
Don't leave your bags

I simply am not here no way I...
Shut up be happy stop whining please

***

The dust in my soul
Makes me feel the weight in my legs
My head in the clouds
And I'm zoning out
I'm watching TV
But I find it hard to stay conscious
I'm totally bored
But I can't switch off

Only apathy from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Only MTV and cod philosophy

We're lost in the mall,
Shuffling through the stores like zombies
Well what is the point?
What can money buy?
My hands on a gun
And I find the range,
God, tempt me
Well what did you say?
Think I'm passing out

Only apathy from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
It's all in me, all in you
Only MTV and cod philosophy

***

Water so warm that day
I counted out the waves
As they broke into surf
I smiled into the sun

The water so warm that day
I was counting out the waves
And I followed their short life
As they broke on the shoreline
I could see you
But I couldn't hear you
You were holding your hat in the breeze
Turning away from me
In this moment you were stolen
As black across the sun

Water so warm that day
I counted out the waves
As they broke into surf
I smiled into the sun

I love this song. I read the book this album influenced by. Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis. It's a really good book. The first line of this song is an inversion of the first line of Lunar Park. Wonderfully composed. Especially the second chorus in the first section when he wrote a chord melody for his vocal line.
