PoL # 2 – Self Destruct

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
I’m alone in the dark, lost in this journey.

And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I take hold of my heart waiting for the hand of God.

Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
I feel it, I smell it, I sense it in my bones, it’s coming.

Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand
If I couldn’t save myself why would I ask you for help.

I’ve seen your face before my friend, but I don’t know if you know who I am
You’re dark, cold but I’m not afraid of you.

Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes
I could see right through you but I couldn’t stop you.

So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
Yeah? You have no idea who you’re dealing with!

It’s all been a pack of lies
I saw right through you!

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
It’s coming fast to end me.

Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I didn’t expect it to be so cold.

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
You’re holding the weapon, I can feel your hate.

Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord
Go ahead… pull the trigger, you think I’m not capable?

Well I remember, I remember, don’t worry, how could I ever forget
I could tell what you were even before you spoke to me.

It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
Until you showed up inside me, punching me.

But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don’t fool me
You’re thorny, deceitful, horrible creature!

Well the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
Wrenching from it in front of you while you laugh!

It’s no stranger to you and me
You’re no friend of mine! You’re a beast!

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Go ahead! Do it! I dare you!

Well been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Let’s get this over with. What are you waiting for?

I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
God can’t rescue me – just do it!

Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
The moment when you say you hate me for all of I’ve done to you!

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Go on… do it!

And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I’m ready to leave this wretched place. Do it!

I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Fucking do it now!

Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord
Pull the fucking trigger!

I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Stop looking in the mirror you wretch!

Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
To the head… now!

  1. Holy fuck… Mel this was dark. You swore… I liked it. Makes me a little worried for you though… oh my goodness! This was great! The twist at the end was the best.
    And… I never realised this song was so dark… I just see everything with sunshine and lollipop glasses…
