5am Eternal

My so called life, is alone the final way.
It’s all downhill for now, but my heart is thrown away.
Walking along the ?, it’s 5 a.m.
Spinning around in my head, I feel lonely again.

Down down in the darkness the sad thing inside me. (there’s a sad thing inside me)
Why can’t I escape this feeling all what engulfs me?
There must be something cause I’m turning on myself.
There must be something cause I’m turning on myself.

Arriving at the house, the dim light inside
Coming from the bedroom, catching my eyes.
Finding under the mistletoe, you rush up the stairs.
Life is so different down the step.

Down down in the darkness there is a strange thing inside me
Why can’t I escape this feeling all of what’s inside me?
There must be something cause I’m turning on myself
There must be something [assumptions] cause I’m turning on myself

So, dance dance dance.
Dance dance dance.
How can you still want me after all these years?
How can you still haunt me after all these years?

As I sit alone thinking,
My life is really nothing.
I can never stop this feeling.
When I start this feeling,
Sleeping like a child,
Looking at those eyes,
Don’t you know what your doing?
Don’t you know what your doing?
To move me.

All through the house there is strange ? feeling
I can’t escape it and I know this feeling.
You walk back, as I’m thousand that I be.
You don’t know what you are doing to me.

Song Notes

This is one of the stranger of Ash’s B-sides. The song starts with wind-up toy noises and then goes into the somewhat weird tune.

To my knowledge, this song was never even attempted to be played live, for if you heard it you would understand why. Nevertheless, the song is really cool and has some cool sound effects. You really have to be an Ash fan to like it though. Most people would think it was just a noisy tune with blurry sounding vocals.

The last note of the song is a piano (synth) chord which seems to come from nowhere. Very cool. (By Brian M).

Rick: The B-sides to “Angel Interceptor” are even weirder. We decided to record this song we wrote ages ago (“5am Eternal”) and then we took a little bit too much space cake and started getting all these weird keyboards and whooshing noises.
