Forget Me Knot

Artist:

Serj Tankian

Album:

Harakiri

Don’t forget me now
Laughing through the tears
For somewhere, somehow
Life becomes the yearsYou speak to millions but you’re talking to no one
Home is the place that you can’t walk away from
You seek all opinions but listen to no one
You throw up your hands and tell me that it’s all done
We intend to rise through motion
Speak through silence and fight ’til the ocean
No more glimmering hopes or commotion
Our dedication’s to each other in devotion

No pretending now
Your heart is open and you reappear
For somewhere, somehow
You dropped the ball and you ran with fear

You speak to millions but talk to no one
Home is the place you can’t walk away from
You seek opinions but listen to no one
You throw up your hands and tell me that it’s all done

We intend to rise through motion
Speak through silence and fight ’til the ocean
No more glimmering hopes or commotions
Our dedication’s to each other in devotion

We intend to speak through peace
Cross the ocean and wake up in the east
Make Jerusalem home for all creeds
Unsheathe your swords and take the eagle’s beast

I pray that God absolves you
Can’t live this life without you
I’ve cleared the coffin for two
I want you, I need you
I pray that God absolves you
Can’t live this life without you
I’ve cleared the coffin for two
Come, today is another day
Come, your hairs are no longer grey
Come, we’re clearing the runway
There’s no turning back from the path for the chosen ones
We intend to rise through motion
Speak through silence and fight ’til the ocean
No more glimmering hopes or commotions
Our dedication’s to each other in devotion
We intend to scream through peace
Cross the ocean and wake up in the east
Make Jerusalem home for all the creeds
Unsheathe your swords and take the eagle’s beast

Car Radio

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it’s dire, my time today
I have these thoughts so often, I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Jackie

I’ve been washing the sand
With my salty tears
Searching the shores these long years
And I walked the sea forever more
Till I find my Jackie-oh
