There it is, that familiar sound. A voice both pinched and distended, that never sings so much as yelps, sticking the words with voodoo pins before every bleated enunciation. There's the distressed guitar, squirming in tense arpeggios over an undertow of spiralling keyboards. And that face, staring out blurrily from the cover - no mistaking it. The iconic, scouring-pad hair. The slipshod,...

The Cure - Bloodflowers: Wikipedia Album Entry
"Bloodflowers" is the 11th studio album of influential English post-punk / gothic rock band The Cure.
The album is considered a return to form after the band veered into mainstream alternative rock territory with the critically panned "Wild Mood Swings". According to vocalist and Cure founder Robert Smith "Bloodflowers" is the final installment in a trilogy of similar albums starting with "Pornography" (1982) and "Disintegration" (1989).
"Bloodflowers" was both a commercial and critical success, earning mainly positive reviews and managing to enter the US Billboard 200 chart at 16th place.
The album was released February 14th, 2000.

When we look back at it all as I know we will
You and me wide eyed
I wonder will we really remember
How it feels to be this alive?
Yeah, I've been watching me fall for it seems like years
Watching me grow small, I watch me disappear
Slipping on out my ordinary world, out my ordinary eyes
Yeah, slipping out the ordinary me into someone else's life
The world is neither fair nor unfair
The idea is just a way for us to understand
But the world is neither fair nor unfair
So one survives, the others die
No I won't do it again
I don't want to pretend
If it can't be like before
I've got to let it end
Nothing I am, nothing I dream
Nothing is new
Nothing I think or believe in or say
Nothing is true
Remember the first time I told you, I love you
It was raining hard and you never heard
You sneezed and I had to say it over
I said, "I love you I said", you didn't say a word
Side by side in silence
They pass away the day
So comfortable, so habitual
And so nothing left to say
So the fire is almost out and there's nothing left to burn
I've run right out of thoughts and I've run right out of words
As I used them up, I used them up
"This dream never ends", you said
This feel never goes
The time will never come to slip away
"This wave never breaks", you said
