Like Eating Glass
Bloc Party Lyrics


It's so cold in this house
Open mouth swallowing us
The children sent home from school
Will not stop crying

And I know that you're busy
Do I know that you care
You got your finger on the pulse
You got your eyes everywhere
And it hurts all the time
When you don't return my calls
And you haven't got the time
To remember how it was

It's so cold in this house
It's so cold in this house

I can't eat, I can't sleep
I can't sleep, I can't dream
An aversion to light
Got a fear of the ocean

Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating

It's so cold in this house
It's so cold in this house
It's so cold in this house
It's so cold in this bed

Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating glass
Like drinking poison, like eating

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah show me
How, how it was

We've got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the walls again
We've got crosses on our eyes
Been walking into the furniture

We've got crosses on our eyes
For richer, for poorer, for better, for worse
We've got crosses on our eyes
We've been walking into the furniture

was 12 years old when i first heard this song...can't believe how fast time flies and how quickly things change.

now i'm 21 and i look back on all of my previous years. this song and others by them remind me especially of freshman year in high school - my new friend at the time showed me bloc party, and he's one of my closest friends now. this song reminds me of being a teen and not knowing shit about life, drinking and smoking weed for the first time, sneaking out to meet up with girls, going to house parties, fights with my parents, the love of my parents despite those fights, feeling uncool, playing games with my friends till 4am, skipping class but never failing, learning to play guitar, losing my virginity, falling in love...

there are so many emotions and so much nostalgia attached to this music for me.

right now, in this moment, i'm sitting here thinking about all of these things while listening to some of these songs (i haven't heard them in years). it's making me sort of sad because now i'm thinking about all of those times and realizing that they'll never be real again. they're never going to reoccur. they're just memories, and as time goes by they'll fade away into nothing.

i guess i'm just stressed out - i feel like life is suddenly picking up quicker than expected, and now i have to figure out what to do with myself. i'm scared that i'll be a failure. i'm scared that i'll never achieve the things i want to achieve. thinking about my past just makes me feel like i took those years for granted, and now they're gone.

This song just randomly popped into my head, but funny enough the way it came into my head was with the image of ‘American Wasteland’ and my character just skating all around the streets of LA 😩 Nostalgia

Ikr. I dunno why but seems like Bloc Party was something that all skaters used to listen to back in like 10years ago.
