Silent Spring - Lyrics by Primal Scream


Lyrics

If all the birds have cursed the sky
A flaming fortress, hunting prey
A feathered bird deflowered dies
The flowers die

My knife has turned on life itself
My skin is bathed in poison rain
A room right on an empty shelf
Empty shelf

All the time in the world
And you never changed a thing
All the time in the world
And you stood back and watched
The silent spring, silent spring

The hovering of every breath
A legacy of decay infests
Just let me imagine mother earth
Mother earth

Chorus (x2)

Silent spring (repeat)
