about

I wrote this in my music room, and I knew, yes, I knew... That this would be the one. and when we played it for the first time, it became the song we had to play foreever. This version is as close as it comes to the original demo. Love it.

lyrics

Living In Oblivion

You can't hide the pain
I can see it scrawled on your empty face
And I feel the hurt
It's in the words you say, they make me want to

Scream out to the world
For taking life for granted and I know
You are by my side
When I turn to hear you cry

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Am I so blind?
With my eyes turned to a different time or hour
At the end of the day
When we both run down and our hopes are heavy

Tell me what you will
'Cause I've got to know the truth inside of you
Can you hear what I say
When I hold you and you scorn the day?

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Living in oblivion
Living in oblivion

So I ask again
Am I so alone and full of pride?
To never speak out
This is my world, this is my world

Don't tell me now
I won't feel those words, I won't feel the lies they tell
Can you hear my scream?
It's for everyone, for everyone

I am so afraid of living in oblivion
I am so afraid of living in oblivion

Living in oblivion
Living in oblivion


Claude S. (1990)

OK. Be careful, time displacements have been known to occur in this construct. Are you still reading this? Good. You are worthy. ... more
