Beck – Heaven Hammer – Missing – Lyrics and Video – Air Remix

This song popped up on my iTunes today, I was thoroughly enjoying it, so I thought I would share it with all of you here.

Beck’s songs are not always uplifting, think of “Loser“, but they are usually all very interesting. Though this song’s lyrics are a little bit of a downer, the music and rhythm seem very positive at the same time, leaving you just about as happy when your done, as when you started…

Beck’s Heaven Hammer – Missing – Remix By Air

Beck – Heaven Hammer – Missing Lyrics

I prayed Heaven today
Bring its hammer down on me
And pound you out of my head
I can’t think with you in it

I dragged all that I owned
Down the dirt road to find you
My shoes worn out and used
They can’t take me much farther

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

She rides in a car, like a queen on a card
And the guns of her mind, aim a line straight at mine
To a heart that was broke, tried to feel but got choked
In the smoke of a desert, a beach with no treasure

A night that’s so blue, feed the aching in you
And the background birds, take a flight from the earth
Where the bonfire burns and the night current turns
On a lifeboat floating, down a river of sleep

I can’t see her hollow eyes
I’m walkin’ along with my boots full of rocks
I can’t believe these tears were mine
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box

I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box
I’ll give them to you to keep away in a box

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there’s something missing

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
