lyrics

Guru

Music Scott // TPF
Words Scott

I don’t need a guru, maybe you do
Maybe voodoo?
Could be the thing I need to cut the body from the brain

I don’t need a leader,
sleazy healer, bottom feeder
No I’m dubious and I know that you’re dubious as well

I don’t need a favour in lieu of good behaviour
I’m no saviour,
I’m no student of the soul

Don’t you understand?
Your head is in the sand
Ain’t you curious,
ain’t you curious of this?

These disappointments weigh heavy on the souls
Who breach the darkness with their eyes closed

The rhythm of hypocrisy
Is steady as a clock you see
I’m furious and I know that you’re furious as well

And it’s not reciprocity
Or just a curiosity
No I’m dubious yeah I’m dubious of this

I don’t need a guru
Maybe you do
Maybe voodoo?
Could be the thing I need to get my heart out of my hands

What don’t you understand?
Your head is in the sand
Ain’t you curious, ain’t you curious at all?

These disappointments weigh heavy on the souls
Who breach the darkness with their eyes (eyes, eyes) closed
