Remy Zero Temenos

Downed in the room

where I live,

scored some broken glass.

Breaking up, losing force.

Hold my fingers up to the lightwell,

and the light is strange,

but I’m alright.

It’s strange, but it’s all right.

It is the tri-coloured fields

and my dream.

And all the people lean

to the sun all the time.

I saw you there.

My eye plays

camera tricks again.

The shutter clicks,

camera tricks.

I fade, I fade.

[Chorus:]

Doot doot doo doot doot…

Doot doot doo doot doot…

I tried to find something.

Well, I only found nothing.

There go the roof, here come the sky.

Let in the sun, here come the shakes.

Here come the shakes!

[Repeat chorus]

Remy Zero Perfect Memory

Remember how they always seemed to know

We had the forest in our eyes but the earth was in our clothes

They thought we’d fall

Not at all

So look back on your treasured days

When we were young in a world that was so tired

Though it’s not what we wanted before

Even the saints had to crawl from the floor

Summers when the money was gone you’d sing

All your little songs that meant everything to me

And I’ll remember you

And the things that we used to do

And the things that we used to say

I’ll remember you

That way

Remember how they tried to hold you down

And we climbed those towers and looked out upon our town

And everything you hoped would last

It just always becomes your past

It hurts

But summer’s when the money was gone you’d sing

All your little songs that meant everything to me

And I’ll remember you

And the things that we used to do

And the things that we used to say

I’ll remember you

Always

But then how this world slipped through my fingers

And even the sun seemed tired

I still cared

As they lowered you down my heart just jaded

In that moment the earth made no sound

But you were there

You helped me lift my pain into the air

I still miss you

God I still miss you

I know that you are waiting there

I always thought that you’d come home

And I’ll remember you

And the things that we used to do

And the things that we used to say

If it don’t hurt you it won’t hurt me

If it don’t hurt me it won’t hurt you

If it don’t hurt you it won’t hurt me that way

Remy Zero Prophecy

Consider this a sign

This is a train in the night

And now it’s time for you to go

You know you had a healthy life boy

You walk this world like you’re a ghost

Your hands are coming through the needles

Sick of your tragic and the evils

I am the keeper of the songs of everyone

Look into the sun and see

Your soul is dying

Used to feel the faith

But now you’re tired of trying

Should have left alone

What you have stolen from everyone

How are you feeling?

Seems a little sick to me now

This is a coming of the times

You are a witness to the movement

If all you’re seeing is lies

You had your chance, but now you’ve blown it

You want this world so you can own them

I am the keeper of the songs of everyone

Look into the sun and see

Your soul is dying

Used to feel the faith

But now you’re tired of trying

Should have left alone

What you have stolen from everyone

How are you feeling?

Seems a little sick to me now

From the light on high

A chance to change your fate

Forgiveness falling down

On those who chose to wait

Remember the time

Find yourself home again

Deep within your life

Find yourself home again

Find yourself home again

It’s a choice

You have chosen your own

In the old days

When the world was young and bright

If you raise the mask

Who will lead us home tonight

Look into the sun and see

Your soul is dying

Used to feel the faith

But now you’re tired of trying

Should have left alone

What you have stolen from everyone

How are you feeling?

Look into the sun and see

Your soul is dying

Used to feel the faith

But now you’re tired of trying

Should have left alone

What you have stolen from everyone

How are you feeling?

Seems a little sick

Seems a little sick

Seems a little sick to me now

Remy Zero Yellow Light

Hey, I can’t get my head straight

Of words we’re twenty blocks too late

Now the devil is in my face

She seems to be looking down

And hey, have you heard about Mr. Crow?

Well, I think so but I don’t know

Well, you can’t let your panic show

My bones is beginning to shake

Reach out your hollow flame

Oh, you’re hangin’ so weird and strange

Oh, your darkest days

They’re just beginning now

And hey, got to move all across this thing

As the moon has made everything mean

Now it tears apart my brain

My bones is beginning to shake

Reach out your hollow flame

Ohh you’re hangin’ so weird and strange

Ohh, your darkest days

They’re just beginning now

Come and leave somehow

Lights to the world

The sun is rising

From the moon and the earth to the stars

Simple wings are simply pulled apart

My bones is beginning to shake

Reach out your hollow flame

Ohh you’re hangin’ so weird and strange

Ohh, your brightest days

They’re just ending, ohhh

Your darkest days

They’re just beginning now, ohh

Remy Zero Impossibility

As the earth swung

This golden hum

Seemed to wash over me

As the bells ringed

I heard you sing

And it called me out

To sea

You said how did you know

That fine living makes you slow

How could you know I was the one

And how could you see

Impossibility

As far as you know

I am your sun

See I woke up frail and perfect

See I woke up tired and warm

As the old man stands to judge us all

I believe I am reborn

You said how could we know

Fine living makes you slow

How could I know you were the one

I said how could you see

Impossibility

As far as I know I am your sun

I swore

Forever more

I would stand up

Bright and clear

As we rise above our

Doubts and fears

Singing out so all may hear

Remy Zero Hermes Bird

Your sad songs rain in heaven

Here’s a call for you

So don’t let it fall into your

Frail dreams of horror

Life, lies, and shattered blows

Calling out you’re famous

So hold to your permanent bliss

In the time that it takes to exist

From the hours to the fall of it

It’s all right

You’re all wrong

And it’s a dangerous thing to ignore

It’s so easy when the world has it’s way

Well, then you’re gone

Life, limbs, and shattered blows

Crawling out you’re famous

So hold to your permanent bliss

When you barely know that you exist

From the hours to the fall of it

All right

Alright, I never said

to just cast them out

Leave it till the morning

Then you’re gone.

So long

Cast them out

Now you’re alive

So hold to your permanent bliss

In the time that it takes to exist

From the hours to the fall of it

It’s all right

You’re all wrong

It’s so, it’s so easy

Remy Zero ‘Til The End

I always thought that we’d carry on ’til the end

And I’d always be your friend

But I should’ve known, lonely as I was back then

That I’d never see you again

How could you walk away?

Leave it all damaged, torn, afraid

Well just go away

And it’s okay

And I guess it’s true that all that you give is returned

For all that you’ve burnt, you’ll burn

And now that you are hoping that they’ll let you in

Just tell them it’s your best friend

And how could it walk away?

Leave you there damaged, torn, and afraid

There’s nothing here

And there’s nothing left to say

I think of the times you said you’d never go

Think of the words when you said so

And I always thought that we’d carry on ’til the end

And you’d always be my friend

Remy Zero Chromosome

Today, moving downwards.

Through my fingers fades tomorrow.

But wait for me,

’cause lines are forming

and words get clearer now.

I’ll borrow them from you,

’cause it’s all I can do.

Today, they shine like Jesus,

and light of millions face our sorrows.

But wait,

the lines are forming

and words get clearer now.

I’ll borrow them from you,

’cause it’s all I can do.

Cracked.

Charred.

Charred.

You can’t communicate.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Stop mumbling.
