about

This song is in the key of Cm.
This song was one of the last things Rowena ever jammed along to, hence the saxophone riff.
George plays the sampled guitar parts on Nicodemus and the recorded guitar parts on the Ice Maiden.

lyrics

SACRIFICE
Sand blown up from the desert makes faces on the wall
Endless beach of sunset holds me in its thrall
And I can’t seem to sleep or wake from this dream
And I can’t seem to find what anything means

I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep

Crowds that have but one head stumble around the town
Opinions of the Doctor say that Heaven’s lost its crown
And I can’t seem to walk, or talk of what I wish
And I can’t seem to see the reason for a kiss

I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep

Fumes snake across my ceiling, the writing is so plain
Surely someone tomorrow will see I’m not to blame
I can’t seem to move or undo this knot
And I can’t seem to use what it is that I’ve got

I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep

I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
I just watch the world throw away what I keep
