Sundara Karma – Olympia lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh no, Olympia said she loves me
Olympia said she needs me
But what about all the marquis
No not them
Because they’re all so autocratic
There’s something pale underneath the beat
A white innocence marked by lecherous men
I thought I’d suffer in the city heat
I thought I’d suffer now let’s hope to begin again

[Pre-Chorus]
If they could see
Modern Venus
Tender and frail
Hell she’s nervous
But she’s the best in all of Paris
At aching and breaking hearts

[Chorus]
And oh lord
Is heaven such a fine thing
We’re floating in a dead town
Hoping to find someone to be near
And we’ll fly away
Holding onto something
We’re drifting in a dull sound
Hoping to find someone who will hear

[Verse 2]
Oh no, Olympia said she loves me
Olympia said she needs me
But what about all the marquis
No not them
Because they’re all so autocratic
I can’t invest with this currency
A blind diligence wrapped and bowed with a lie
But still we stay for the company
But still we stay cause we don’t wanna ever die

[Pre-Chorus]
If they could see
Modern Venus
Tender and frail
Hell she’s nervous
But she’s the best in all of Paris
At aching and breaking hearts

[Chorus]
And oh lord
Is heaven such a fine thing
We’re floating in a dead town
Hoping to find someone to be near
And we’ll fly away
Holding onto something
We’re drifting in a dull sound
Hoping to find someone who will hear

[Bridge]
I already know, I already know, I already know, I already know
I already know, I already know, I already know

[Chorus]
And oh lord
Is heaven such a fine thing
We’re floating in a dead town
Hoping to find someone to be near
And we’ll fly away
Holding onto something
We’re drifting in a dull sound
Hoping to find someone who will hear
And oh lord
Is heaven such a fine thing
We’re floating in a dead town
Hoping to find someone to be near
And we’ll fly away
Holding onto something
We’re drifting in a dull sound
Hoping to find someone who will hear
