Your Undoing

Your Undoing
Robyn Mackenzie

You used to believe
That everything was logical
You used to believe
There was no room for magical

'Cause when you grow up then you know that there's no such thing as ghosts
And the world you know is toast, you're gonna die soon
So you party and you smoke and you drink and take a toke
And you stumble down the road under the full moon

Well it's midnight, and trouble's a-brewing
And your hunger will be your undoing

You wanna be numb
You'll do anything you can to kill the pain
You wanna have fun
By making all your feelings go away

And they tell you there's a god that will save you from beyond
A holy champion to keep your soul intact
So you kneel and you pray and you do it every day
And you feel so very safe, you know just how to act

But it's midnight, and trouble's a-brewing
And your hunger will be your undoing
Where is this paradise, this perfect life you're pursuing
Yeah your hunger will be your undoing
Your undoing

Just like a wolf with a bone, you're gonna starve alone, oh
Just like a vulture in flight, the moment you alight
You'll have to fend for your own

'Cause it's midnight, and trouble's a-brewing
And your hunger will be your undoing
Where is this paradise, this perfect life you're pursuing
Yeah your hunger will be your undoing
Your undoing
Your undoing.

Your Undoing

Let your eyes scan the waterline
This ain’t the same old place that you left behind
And I’m sad to say it’s the faces that have changed the most

Many friends here you used to have
Their sinking homes got bought and they mobilized
But you can’t despair, you need to get your story in the Post

People talking ‘bout your undoing
Well it caused the ground to swell
But council’s now reneging on new offers
And your plan got shot to hell

Lakeside in the wintertime
Where fortunes rise and fall, turning on a dime
Cos the value of the land isn’t tethered to reality

Your inheritance is vanishing
Like a promise from a politician on the scene
Who seems to understand til there’s a better opportunity

All the talk about your undoing
Could have helped some neighbors to sell
But then the angels and the devil got together
And the deal just went to hell
And here I am in it as well

When we got married
I thought we’d always end up here
Watching sunsets
With a bucketful of beer

I know we may not have your sympathy
Because we own this cottage nestled in the trees
But the water keeps rising and there’s nothing more that we can do

Carboniferous deposits resting thirty seven feet beneath your moss covered lawn
Dendritic filaments compressed into composite layers
Burn it up until it it is gone

I got the past inside my pocket today
Plate tectonics have locked it away
It'll make all the geologists say mmmhmmmm

Elemental monumental, it's experimental research, detrimental at best
Lava on Avalon, burning down Babylon
Keep enough around for the rest

I got the past inside my pocket today
Plate tectonics have locked it away
It'll make all the geologists say mmmhmmmm
mmhmmmmmm,mmmmmm

Your undoing will come by the asteroid
No undoing the call of the void
Your undoing will come by the asteroid
No undoing the call of the void

Your Undoing
Chthonic Youth

Wake up alone in the high rise apartment you
Take in the view, realize,
You're crushed oh so emptily
Can't face down the scrutiny

Stand in the hall, and standoffishly wait
Sharing the lift with a girl
Someone's mistress half your age
She don't even look your way

You always had your charm to fall back on
All else failed you could call up your ma and
Start again

Wake again
This isn't your destiny
This isn't how anything should be
The life of a nobody

Your undoing will only be hastened
By decisions taken in complaisence

I can't recall your face back then

Reflections mirrors of your life
All these contours once were fine lines
All so dull and all so common
Inertia taking the reins too often

I can't bear to watch you
I can't watch you unravel yourself
Can't bear to watch you
I can't bear to watch you fall apart

Your Undoing
Berkeley Social Scene

Not every word I said was true
That I’ll admit, but your tactics said it was war

And what I doled out was nothing new
All the same pieces, playing the game on the board

It wasn’t our undoing
You went for it on your own
It wasn’t our undoing
It was yours and yours alone

You were the one who pushed the campaign
Out to the banks to get the drifters ashore

In a smoke-filled room, you opened your veins
And emptied your will to guarantee their support

It wasn’t our undoing
You went for it on your own
It wasn’t our undoing
It was yours and yours alone

You can try to blame me for
All of the things
You did but wish weren’t yours
You know you’ll sing
The canary you are, you are
Just for a crumb of their mercy

It wasn’t our undoing
You went for it on your own
It wasn’t our undoing
It was yours and yours alone
