Devin Townsend – Bastard Lyrics

[Words and music by Devin Townsend]

[1] Not one of the better days

Nighttime, turn around

Lonely is the city tonight

Nighttime, all around

Lonely in the city tonight

Grey people stare at a static sky (as you will)

Ours is not to question why

Same thing, every time

It always seems to need what I’m not

To all the hopeful ones:

Nobody gives a fuck what you’ve got

I only wish that I could pray to god

(but you will)

Stay longer

Please don’t leave me alone

Bastard, mother, father, no…

Time passed quicker than you will ever know

And they can push me harder

But you know I’ll never go

And they will justify it, but you know

It will take them slow

[2] The girl from blue city

The lights from across the harbour

And the boys are out on the corners

Sex in the neon basements (red and smelly)

And don’t feel a thing (it’s too cold to worry)

So in the corner by the dock

Where there’s no light

It smells like piss but no one knows

And right now just to sleep would be alright

…Feel old, gone where the feelings go

…Gone now in a field of green

Gone where feelings go…
