about

Given the recent trend of one-man folk troubadours emerging from contemporary punk rock, I thought it would be a fun twist if I covered - in that style - a song that was originally entirely electronic. Originally by VNV Nation, this song is an odd favourite from years ago.

lyrics

When I have nothing left to feel
When I have nothing left to say
I'll just let this slip away
I feel these engines power down
I feel this heart begin to bleed
As I turn this burning page

Please forgive me if I bleed
Please forgive me if I breathe
I have words I need to say
Oh, so very much to say

Whose life do I lead?
Whose blood do I bleed?
Whose air do I breathe?
With whose skin now do I feel?

I'm supposed to walk away from here

(Help me...)

Whose life do I lead?
And whose blood do I bleed?
Whose air do I now breathe?
I'm convinced there's nothing more

The day you died I lost my way
The day you died I lost my mind
What am I supposed to do?
Is there something more?

The engines power down
Like a soldier to his end I go
Because I'm convinced that there is nothing more

Whose life do I lead?
And whose air do I breathe?
With whose skin and whose blood do I feel?
What happens now?

Have I done something wrong?
Forgive my need to bleed right now
Please forgive my need to breathe
But I've so much to say
It wouldn't matter anyway
You're not here to hear these words that I must say
And I'm convinced inside that there is nothing more

Whose life do I lead?
And whose air do I breathe?
Whose blood do I now bleed?
With whose skin now do I feel?

I've nothing left to say
I have nothing left to feel
Am I supposed to let this go now?
Let darkness come and take you away?
