I love this album. This song “Lost for Words” specially, because is like a slap in my face. All the lyrics on Division Bell are so Deep and beautiful that my mind blows!
I was spending my time in the doldrums
I was caught in the cauldron of hate
I felt persecuted and paralyzed
I thought that everything else would just wait
While you are wasting your time on your enemies
Engulfed in a fever of spite
Beyond your tunnel vision reality fades
Like shadows into the night
To martyr yourself to caution
Is not going to help at all
Because there’ll be no safety in numbers
When the Right One walks out of the door
Can you see your days blighted by darkness?
Is it true you beat your fists on the floor?
Stuck in a world of isolation
While ivy grows over the door
So I open my door to my enemies
And I ask could we wipe the slate clean
But they tell me to please go fuck myself
You know you just can’t win
Released on 2001 Donnie Darko is a hypnotic movie with an instigator story and an atmosphere that makes you discover something new every time you watch, of course that the predominantly 80’s soundtrack (Pop/Pos-Punk/New Wave/Alternative Rock) gives a lot of support to plot of the movie.
