Come near me - Massive Attack featuring Ghostpoet
 


Wat een fijn nieuws: Massive Attack heeft (met hulp van Ghostpoet) een nieuwe single uitgebracht. Zoals altijd staat dat garant voor kwaliteit. Nochtans is dit geen instant-hit, eerder een song die je behoedzaam besluipt, je in je slaap overvalt, binnenkruipt en van binnenuit je opvreet.
In de clip zit trouwens een leuk moment wanneer hun eerste hit Unfinished sympathy passeert, daarmee de sfeer van vervreemding nog vergrotend.

De single is ook terug te vinden op The spoils als een soort B-kant.

Lyrics:

[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

 

[Verse 1]  
Quick thought, left or right
Could it be a strong case of fight or flight?
We'd never know you're slightly overworked
And self-conscious
Sweating beads of doubt
This can't be right
Whisperin' out, "This can't be right, right?"
This ain't like a DVD
Pretty from aftershave
I'm scared life will leave me
Strung out and needin' love
Surely I'm as overcome but brimstone won't come to [lungs?]


[Refrain 1]
But I ain't done
Surely I ain't done
Oh, nah, nah
I ain't done
Oh, but my mind's on the run

[Pre-Hook 1]
Caused by your never-ending dream
And it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
You know what I mean?

[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me

[Verse 2]
Monster on the bed, regurgitating out
[There's?] monkey on my bite
Pulling it like puppet strings, slow to react
Tell me what's the matter, love
Life's drive slow-mo
Front crawl in speedos
Fight against the rising tide
Breathe deep, never stop clawing at the light
Clinging on to what we got

[Refrain 2]
But I ain't done
I ain't done
Surely, surely, surely we must overcome
But my mind's on the run
My mind's on the run

[Pre-Hook 2]
Caused by your never-ending dream
Nah, and it ain't what it seems
It ain't what it seems
Baby girl, it ain't what it seems
Nah, it ain't what it seems

[Interlude]
Too cruel to be mean
To be cruel
Don't wanna lose ya
Uh

[Hook]
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
We've been here before, don't fear me
Don't stand by the door, come near me
