Tortured by Midi – The Vacuum Lyrics


From Tortured by Midi’s 2016 sophomore album – Devoid.

(The past foreshadows the present, and the present cannot be undone.)

Boredom is loneliness and emptiness.

Your shadow is glowing as you think aloud,

and dive below the sea of pain,

the vacuum will haunt you. 

When joy is lost with no control,

just swallowed whole.

Belief will revive you so turn around,

so turn around, grab my hand – settle down.

The vacuum persists. 

Angels coming to rise you above,

they are coming to take you away.

Away into space.

I will keep you so close to my heart,

I’ll remind you of just who you are.

Just hold your way.

Numbness comes, you hold on tight and feel so scared,

you’re drowning in panic.

As the lights go off, you drift away, no choice but play.

The vacuum dissolves you.

So break it down, just use the door to the other side,

where wisdom is hiding.

You hold the key with your golden soul and eternal fate. 

The vacuum persists. 

Angels coming to rise you above,

they are coming to take you away.

Away into space.

I will keep you so close to my heart,

I’ll remind you of just who you are.

Just hold your way. 

(Anytime, when less is more.

When too much is never enough.

There is always hope for the future.

The future can’t be written from the past.

The past foreshadows the present.

And the present hasn’t been written yet.”)
