Paroles officielles de la chanson "Song For Clay (Instrumental)"

I am trying to be heroic
In an age of modernity
I am trying to be heroic
As all around me history sinks
So I enjoy and I devour
Flesh and wine and luxury
But in my heart I am lukewarm
Nothing ever really touches me

At Les Trois Garcons, we meet at precisely nine o'clock
I order the foie gras and I eat it with complete disdain
Bubbles rise in champagne flutes, but when we kiss I feel nothing
Feasting on sleeping pills and Marlboro reds
Self-pity won't save you

Oh how our parents suffered for nothing
Live the dream like the 80's never happened
People are afraid to merge on the freeway
Disappear here

We stroll past the queue, into the magazine launch party
I am handed a pill and I swallow with complete disdain
Kick drum pounds, off-beat high-hats, remember to look bored
We suck each other's faces and make sure we are noticed
The cocaine won't save you

Because East London is a vampire, it sucks the joy right out of me
How we longed for corruption in these golden years
