lyrics

COOL WATER

*VELLEITY
vɛˈliːɪti/
nounformal
noun: velleity; plural noun: velleities

- a wish or inclination not strong enough to lead to action.*

Does it matter where we're going?
Does it matter where we've been?
There's a reason we're all happy,
It's the season of the will.

But it matters where we're going,
there's the matter of where we've been.
Is there a reason we were sleeping,
dreaming dreams we thought were real?

Velleity, back to hell with thee.
Velleity, don't bother me.

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.
I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.

Does it matter we were empty?
Does it matter all was false?
There is no freedom in a kingdom
with a king of hollow and a queen of gloss.
It doesn't matter that we're empty,
all that matters is we dream,
our stagnant wishes to be happy,
are the million pennies that you reap from fountains.

Velleity, back to hell with thee.
Velleity, don't bother me.

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.
I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.

Velleity, no more....no more...

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life......
