Glacier

John Grant

John Grant and The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra


You just want to live your life
The best way you know how
But they keep on telling you
That you are not allowed

They say that you are sick
That you should bend your head in shame
They are pointing fingers
And want you to take the blame

There are days when people are
So massive and convincing
They say things beyond belief
That sting and leave you wincing

And to boot, they say their words
Come straight down from above
And they really seem to think
That what they're doing counts as love

(Chorus)
This pain it is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes
And nourishing the ground
With precious minerals and other stuff
So don't you become paralyzed with fear
When things seem particularly rough

Don't you pay them, fuckers, as they say no, never mind
They don't give two shits about you
It's the blind leading the blind
What they want is commonly referred to as "theocracy"
And what that boils down to is referred as "hypocrisy"

Don't glimpse onto anyone, get answers on your own
Even if it means sometimes you feel quite alone
No one on this planet can tell you what to believe
People like to talk a lot and they like to deceive

(Chorus) x2
This pain it is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes
And nourishing the ground
With precious minerals and other stuff
So don't you become paralyzed with fear
When things seem particularly rough
