Sleep Token - Take Me Back To Eden Lyrics






Chokehold

When we were made
It was no accident
We were tangled up like branches in a flood
I come as a blade
A sacred guardian
So you keep me sharp and test my worth in blood

You've got me in a chokehold
You've got me in a chokehold
You've got me in a

Beneath the stormy seas
Above the mountain peaks
It's all the same to me
It makes no difference
I've seen my days unfold, done the impossible
I'll turn my walls to gold
To bring you home again

So show me that which I cannot see
Even if it hurts me, even if I can't sleep
Oh, and though we act out of our
Holy duty to be constantly awake

You've got me in a chokehold
You've got me in a chokehold
You've got me in a chokehold
You've got me in a chokehold

Even if it hurts me, even if I can't sleep
Show me the way

The Summoning

I've got a river running right into you
I've got a blood trail, red in the blue
Something you say or something you do
A taste of the divine

You've got my body, flesh and bone, yeah
The sky above, the Earth below

Raise me up again
Take me past the edge
I want to see the other side
See the other side

You've got my body, flesh and bone
The sky above, the Earth below

Raise me up again
Take me past the edge
I want to see the other side

Won't you show me what it's like?
Won't you show me what it's like?

Oh, and my love
Did I mistake you for a sign from God?
Or are you really here to cut me off?
Or maybe just to turn me on

'Cause these days
I would be lying if I told you that
I didn't wish that I could be your man
Or maybe make a good girl bad

I've got a river running right into you
I've got a blood trail, red in the blue
Something you say or something you do
The taste of the divine

You've got my body, flesh and bone
The sky above, the Earth below
Nothing to say and nowhere to go
A taste of the divine

Granite

Sulfur on your breath
Granite in my chest
You won't ever have to talk about it
You'll never want to talk about it

Fury, too damn late
Reason dislocates
And you'll never have to talk about it
You'll never want to talk about it

I was more than just a body in your passenger seat
And you were more than just somebody I was destined to meet
I see you go half-blind when you're looking at me
But I am

Between the second-hand smoke and the glass on the street
You gave me nothing whatsoever but a reason to leave
You say you want me but you know I'm not what you need
But I am

When you sit there
Acting like you know me
Acting like you only brought me in to get below me
Never mind the death threats
Parting at the door
We'd rather be six feet under than be lonely

If you had a problem
Then you should've told me
Before you started getting all aggressive and controlling
You only drink the water
When you think it's holy
So keep an eye on the road or we will both be here forever

I was more than just a body in your passenger seat
And you were more than just somebody I was destined to meet
I see you go half-blind when you're looking at me
But I am

Between the second-hand smoke and the glass on the street
You gave me nothing whatsoever but a reason to leave
You say you want me but you know I'm not what you need
But I am

But I was more than just a body in your passenger seat
And you were more than just somebody I was destined to meet
I see you go half-blind when you're looking at me
But I am

Between the second-hand smoke and the glass on the street
You gave me nothing whatsoever but a reason to leave
You say you want me but you know I'm not what you need
But I am

Aqua Regia

Oh, my love is an animal call
Cutting through the darkness, bouncing off the walls
Between teeth on a broken jaw
Following a blood trail, frothing at the maw

These days I'm a circuit board
Integrated hardware you cannot afford
The perfect start to a perfect war
Putting down the roses picking up the sword

Aqua regia
Aqua regia

Well, my past is a holy book
A call from Olympus, ringing off the hook
Between the pain and the way you look
I'm stuck in a time where the mountains shook

These days I'm a picture frame
Screaming at the sunshine, singing in the rain
Sugar on the blood cells, carbon on the brain
Out of Eden's vices running through my veins

Aqua regia
Oxytocin running in the ether
Silicon ballrooms
Subatomic interactions if it's all good
Gold rush, acid flux
Saturate me, I can't get enough
Cold love, hot blood
Running to your heart when you're thinking of

Oh, when I am done dancing to alarm bells
No wonder my ears are still ringing
And I am done fighting off change
No wonder my arms are still swinging

Aqua regia
Oxytocin running in the ether
Silicon ballrooms
Subatomic interactions if it's all good
Gold rush, acid flux
Saturate me, I can't get enough
Cold love, hot blood
Running to your heart when you're thinking of

Vore

You have become the voice in my head
Only recourse we're left after death
Your viscera welcome me in, welcome me in
My life is torn, my bones, they bleed
My metaphors fall short in the end
Your flesh and bone welcome me in, welcome me in
Are you in pain like I am?

Will we remain stuck in the throat of gods?
Will the pain stop if we go deeper?

So let's get swallowed whole
I want to go where nobody else will ever go

Walls of flesh, so warm again
We step into my suffering
My only need, welcome me in, welcome me in

There is always something in the way
I want to have you to myself for once
Follow me between the jaws of fate
So I can have you to myself for once

So let's get swallowed whole
I want to go where nobody else will ever go

There is always something in the way
I want to have you to myself for once

Are you in pain like I am?
Are you in pain like I am?
Are you in pain like I am?
Are you in pain like I am?

Ascensionism

Well, I know what you want from me
You want someone to be
Your reflection, your bitter deception
Setting you free
So you take what you want and leave

Who made you like this?
Who encrypted your dark gospel in body language?
Synapses snap back in blissful anguish
Tell me you met me in past lives, past life
Past what might be eating me from the inside, darling
Half algorithm, half deity
Glitches in the code or gaps in a strange dream
Tell me you guessed my future and it mapped onto your fantasy
Turn me into your mannequin and I'll turn you into my puppet queen

Won't you come and dance in the dark with me?
Show me what you are, I am desperate to know
Nobody better than the perfect enemy
Digital demons make the night feel heavenly

Make it real
'Cause anything's better than the way I feel right now
I can offer you a blacklit paradise
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky

Lipstick, chemtrails, red flags, pink nails
With one eye on the door, other eye on a rail
Other, other eye following a scarlet trail
And the last few drops from the Holy Grail, now
Rose gold chains, ripped lace, cut glass
Blood stains on the collar, please, just don't ask
Be the first to the feast, let's choke on the past
And take to the broken skies at last

Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky

Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
Diamonds in the trees, pentagrams in the night sky
You're gonna watch me ascend

And I know what you want from me
You want the same as me
My redemption, eternal ascension
Setting me free
So I'll take what I want then leave

You make me wish I could disappear, oh
You make me wish I could disappear

Are You Really Okay?

I raised you in the dark
Caught you reading by the sunrise
You wandered from the path
Through the silence of the hillside

And don't you know
I could see it in you even then
And don't you know
I was trying to hold back the darkness

And are you really okay?
Are you really okay?

You woke me up one night
Dripping crimson on the carpet
I saw it in your eyes
Cutting deeper than the scars could run

And don't you know
I can see it in you even now
And don't you know
I want to help you but I don't know how

And are you really okay? Yeah, yeah
Are you really okay?

And I, I cannot fix your wounds this time
But I, I don't believe you when you tell me you are fine

Please don't hurt yourself again
Just please don't hurt yourself again, oh
Please don't hurt yourself again
Please don't hurt yourself again

The Apparition

Why are you never real?
Whenever you appear
You leave me with that grace
I am trembling with fear
But I know that you will disappear
Just as I awake, a whisper in my ear

Well, I believe that somewhere in the past
Something was between you and I my dear
And it remains with me to this day
No matter what I do
This scar will never fade

So let's make trouble in the dream world
Hijack heaven with another memory now
I make the most of the turning tide
It just split what's left of the burning silence

Don't wait, 'cause this could be the last time
You turn up in the reveries of my mind
I wake up to a suicide frenzy
Loaded dreams still leave me empty

And I believe that somewhere in the past
Something was between you and I my dear
And it remains with me to this day
No matter what I do
This wound will never heal

Why are you never real?
The shifting states you follow me through
Unrevealed, just let me go or take me with you

So let's make trouble in the dream world
Hijack heaven with another memory now
I make the most of the turning tide
It just split what's left of the burning silence

Don't wait, 'cause this could be the last time
You turn up in the reveries of my mind
I wake up to a suicide frenzy
Loaded dreams still leave me empty

DYWTYLM

Do you roll with the waves?
Or do you duck into deep blue safety?
Is it always the same?
Do you wish that you loved me?

Do you pull at the chains?
Or do you push into constant aching?
Each and every day
Do you wish that you loved me?

Is there something you give
That you will never receive in return?
Do you know what it is?
Do you wish that you loved me?

Are you trying to live
Like everything is a lesson to learn?
Can you ever forgive? (Yourself)
Do you wish that you loved me?

And my reflection just won't smile back at me like I know it should
And I would turn into a stranger in an instant if I could
And there is something eating me alive, I don't know what it is
Maybe not that you conceal your feelings, they just don't exist

Do you ever believe
That we can turn into different people?
It's getting harder to be (myself)
Do you wish that you loved me?

Could we ever release?
Is it better to just not feel?
Can we hit delete?
Do you wish that you loved me?

And it's been so long that I'm forgetting what it feels like
But I'd rather not remind myself and leave it all behind
And I've tried so hard to fix it all but nothing seems to help
But I cannot hope to give you what I cannot give myself

Do you wish that you loved me? (Smile back)
Do you wish that you loved me? (At me)
Do you wish that you loved me? Oh, whoa
Do you wish that you loved me? (Delete)

Do you wish that you loved me? (Smile back)
Do you wish that you loved me? (At me)
Do you wish that you loved me? Oh, whoa
Do you wish that you loved me?

Rain

For so long, I have waited
So long that I almost became
Just a stoic statue, fit for nobody
And I don't wanna get in your way
But I finally think I can say
That the vicious cycle was over
The moment you smiled at me

And just like the rain
You cast the dust into nothing
And wash out the salt from my hands
So touch me again
I feel my shadow dissolving
Will you cleanse me with pleasure?

It's that chemical cut that I can get down with
Up like the moon and out like the hounds
A dangerous disposition somehow
Refracted in light, reflected in sound
I'm coiled up like the venomous serpent
Tangled in your trance and I'm certain
You have got your hooks in me

I know, I know, the way that it goes
You get what you give, you reap what you sow
And I can see you in my fate
And I know, I know, I am what I am
The mouth of the wolf, the eyes of the lamb
So darling, will you saturate?

And just like the rain
You cast the dust into nothing
And wash out the salt from my hands
So touch me again
I feel my shadow dissolving
Will you cleanse me with pleasure?

Nobody can say for certain
If maybe it's all just a game
When I open my eyes to the future
I can hear you say my name

So rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me, rain down on me

Yeah, rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me
Oh, rain down on me, rain down on me
Yeah, rain down on me

Take Me Back To Eden

I dream in phosphorescence
Bleed through spaces
See you drifting past the fog
But no one told you where to go

We dive through crystal waters, perfect oceans
But no one told me not to breathe
And now the weightlessness recedes

My, my, those eyes like fire
I'm a winged insect, you're a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I'm a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire

I will travel far beyond the path of reason
Take me back to Eden, take me back to Eden
Take me back to Eden

Well yeah, I spit blood when I wake up
Sink porcelain stained, choking up brain matter and makeup
Just two days since the mainframe went down and I'm still messed up
Room feels like a meat freezer, I dangle in it like cold cuts
Missed calls, answered phones from people I just don't trust
Mirror talk, fake love
But I'll take a pound of your flesh
Before you take a piece of my paystub
White roses, black doves, Godmother, rise up
I need you to see me for what I have become

My, my, those eyes like fire
I'm a winged insect, you're a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I'm a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire

I guess it goes to show, does it not?
That we've no idea what we've got until we lose it
And no amount of love will keep it around
If we don't choose it
And I don't know what's got its teeth in me
But I'm about to bite back in anger
No amount of self-sought fury
Will bring back the glory of innocence

My, my, those eyes like fire
I'm a winged insect, you're a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I'm a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire

(When we were made)
(It was no accident)
(You know my desire)
(We were tangled up like branches in a flood)

I have traveled far beyond the path of reason
Take me back to Eden
Take me back to Eden

Euclid

Just run it back, give me five whole minutes
I am thick tar on the inside burning
I've got a ghost in the hallway grinning
And a heavy head that won't stop turning
If my fate is a bad collision
And if my mind is an open highway
Give me the twilight two-way vision
Give me one last ride on a sunset sky lane

Call me when you get the chance
I can feel the walls around me closing in

Just running forward, a life like wires
As I see the past on an empty ceiling
I play along with the life signs anyway
But hope to God you don't know this feeling
Yet in reverse, you are all my symmetry
A parallel I would lay my life on
So if your wings won't find you Heaven
I will bring it down like an ancient bygone

Call me when you have the time
I just need to leave this part of me behind

Do you remember me
When the rain gathers?
And do you still believe
That nothing else matters?

For me
It's still the autumn leaves
These ancient canopies
That we used to lay beneath

No, by now
The night belongs to you
This bough has broken through
I must be someone new

No, for me
(Run it back, give me five whole minutes)
(I am thick tar on the inside burning) it's still the autumn leaves
(I've got a ghost in the hallway grinning)
(And a heavy head that won't stop turning) these ancient canopies
(If my fate is a bad collision)
(And if my mind is an open highway) we used to lay beneath
(Give me the twilight two-way vision)

(Give me one last ride on a sunset sky lane) now, by now
(Just running forward, alive like wires)
(As I see the past on an empty ceiling) the night belongs to you
(I play along with the life signs anyway)
(But hope to God you don't know this feeling) this bough has broken through
(Yet in reverse, you are all my symmetry)
(A parallel I would lay my life on) I must be someone new
(So if your wings won't find you Heaven)
(I will bring it down like an ancient bygone)

The whites of your eyes
Turn black in the low light
In turning divine
And we tangle endlessly
Like lovers entwined
I know for the last time
You will not be mine
So give me the night, the night, the night
