Say It Again

from Conquest by Black Hay



It starts with a smile
They do every time
You think maybe something good
will happen this time

But you've been used before
When you want something more
Desire sucks the demons up through the floor
It leaves you bleeding, blind, and sore

You can’t meet their eyes
They laugh and they lie
They see through every inch of your disguise

Oh, say It again
They forced you into being all these things
Now you want something back
But there’s no one here who can give you that
No one here who can you take you back again

There he stands with a smile
And the eyes of a child
It causes the goose-bumps to stretch out for miles

And you feel them attack
Like knives inside your back
It's hard to find the funny side of that

Oh, say It again
You were never going to be like one of them
Now you want something back
but there’s no one here who can give you that
No one to give meaning to it all

Oh, say It again
They forced you into being just like them
Now you want something back
but no one remembers you holding back
You want something back
But every step you made was on your own

Black Hay London, UK

Black Hay is the project of London-born Gideon K and a motley crew of collaborators.

Previously described as "Worse than Leonard Cohen", Black Hay's music has gone from noirish garage rock, to grungey alt-country low-rock, via DIY house-bound balladry, to a current incarnation of cold-hearted post-punk indie synth-tronica.

The new single 'Always Be Mine' is out now.
