Cassandra
Florence and the Machine Song Lyrics

Artist: Florence and the Machine
Album: Dance Fever (2022)


I used to see the future and now I see nothin'
They cut out my eyes and sent me home packin'
To pace around the kitchen for scraps of inspiration
Cryin' like cassandra, I
I used to tell the future, but they cut out my tongue
And left me doin' laundry to think on what I've done
It wasn't me, it was the song.

I used to move into the future, bring it all back
Let it bleed through my fingers, a treasure in my hands
Now I creep out when there's no one about
'cause they put crosses on the doors to try and keep me out
The garden's overgrown
And I run in the middle of the road (ooh...)

Well, can you see me?
I cannot see you
Everything I thought I knew has fallen out of view
In this blindness I'm condemned to
Well, can you hear me?
I cannot hear you
Every song I thought I knew, I've been deafened to
And there's no one left to sing to.

All the gods have been domesticated
And heaven is now overrated
And the churches, they all closed their doors
Well, you can take your complaints straight to the lord
I try to still look with wonder on the world
As the roses bloom
And the riot van still plainly in view.

Well, can you see me?
I cannot see you
Everything I thought I knew has fallen out of view
In this blindness that I'm condemned to
Well, can you hear me?
I cannot hear you
Every song I thought I knew, I've been deafened to
And there's no one left to sing to.

(Ooh...)
(Ooh...)
(Ooh, oh...)
Take me back (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Oh, drunken gods of slaughter (ooh, ooh, ooh....)
You know I've always been your favorite daughter (ooh, ooh, ooh...)

Well, can you see me?
I cannot see you
Everything I thought I knew has fallen out of view
And if I run fast enough
Could I break apart
As empires tumble and cathedrals flatten in my heart?
