Abney Park: Ancient World 2012 Lyrics: I respect you enough To tell you the truth I could spin some false complements Would you think that’s more couth? I could, I could, write us a song And only tell the good sides Would you say that I’ve made amends? That you prefer all the lies I’m spinning the handle and I’ve Tricked the machine This is only hiding the pain Still got no vaccine I can try to soften my words To lessen the blow I could spin some false complements But there ‘s something you should know I could tell all your friends Were doing fine I could give them false confidence were not in decline I’m spinning the handle and I’ve Tricked the machine This is only hiding the pain Still got no vaccine I’m spinning the handle and I’ve Tricked the machine This is only hiding the pain Still got no vaccine I respect you enough To tell you the truth I could spin some false complements Would you think that’s more couth? I could, I could, write us a song And only tell the good sides Would you say that I’ve made amends? That you prefer all the lies I’m spinning the handle and I’ve Tricked the machine This is only hiding the pain Still got no vaccine I’m spinning the handle and I’ve Tricked the machine This is only hiding the pain Still got no vaccine

  1. hmm. choice words

  2. Every relationship has its ups and downs.Plus this song doesnt even have to be about his current relationship, it could be in retrospect to another one in the past. I know, I’m a writer myself and write poetry/lyrics and feelings that I get at times when the Muse hits me arent always evoked by those that are around me.

  3. oh my gawd, this is awesome :о

  4. I noticed the same thing when I saw them at a concert in 2010.  I could see that something was off between them and the songs on the ‘Ancient World’ album makes me think that things haven’t improved.

  5. hnn, I’ve been wondering for a while if everything is all right between Cap’n Robert and his wife.. this seems like it might be about that. Though, this is only wild speculation and I hope otherwise.
