Baroness Desperation Burns Lyrics

I hate to say, but we’ve looked on better days

It took me by surprise

We left our quiet home behind

The castaways drag the lake

The desperation burns

Raise the alarm

Un-close your eyes

Desperation

You never sang so sweetly ’til you whispered in my ear

I never heard a sound but I could hear

The hatchet-man dusting off his sleeve

Spilt my blood and drank my dreams

And stopped the spinning wheels

Wash away the bitter taste

The desperation burns

Raise the alarm

Un-close your eyes

Desperation

The last one flew

Just out of sight

If it throws you away

Just sit back and enjoy the ride

Raise the alarm

Un-close your eyes

Desperation burns
