visit me
(marr, sumner)



early morning, with a sigh

she opens both her eyes

praying for a safe return

lost in the darkest night



this day the jury has adjourned

her love has taken flight

she is coming home to visit me tonight

she is coming home to visit me tonight



taken from the arms of another

woken from the deepest dream

patiently she waits for her lover

perhaps her life is not what it seemed



come to me and see my endeavour

like a leaf she falls to the ground

in the dust that gathers forever

we are spirits making no sound



she is coming home to visit me tonight

she is coming home to visit me tonight



taken from the arms of another

woken from the deepest dream

patiently she waits for her lover

perhaps her life is not what it seemed

comment
like many songs on raise the pressure this track is full of subtle guitar hooks and nimble synth jabs. the false ending provides some space from the otherwise dense production, while the get the message drum fill makes a welcome return and the middle eight is classic sumner, musically as well as lyrically. the contraction-free words have no apparent discernible substance, but according to a 1996 interview with blah blah blah it’s actually about a murderer. sumner: “i attempted to get inside their mind, to study their conscience after they’ve killed someone.” whatever you say, bernard.
