Nevermind
(True Detective’s Theme Song)” – Mp3 amazon

Listen

The war was lost
The treaty signed
I was not caught
I crossed the line
 
I was not caught
Though many tried
I live among you
Well disguised
 
I had to leave
My life behind
I dug some graves
You’ll never find
 
The story’s told
With facts and lies
I had a name
But never mind
 
Never mind
Never mind
The war was lost
The treaty signed
 
There’s truth that lives
And truth that dies
I don’t know which
So never mind
 
Your victory
Was so complete
That some among you
Thought to keep
 
A record of
Our little lives
The clothes we wore
Our spoons our knives
 
The games of luck
Our soldiers played
The stones we cut
The songs we made
 
Our law of peace
Which understands
A husband leads
A wife commands
 
And all of this
Expressions of
The Sweet Indifference
Some call Love
 
The High Indifference
Some call Fate
But we had Names
More intimate
 
Names so deep and
Names so true
They’re blood to me
They’re dust to you
 
There is no need
That this survive
There’s truth that lives
And truth that dies
 
Never mind
Never mind
I live the life
I left behind
 
There’s truth that lives…
 
I could not kill
The way you kill
I could not hate
I tried I failed
 
You turned me in
At least you tried
You side with them
Whom you despise
 
This was your heart
This swarm of flies
This was once your mouth
This bowl of lies
 
You serve them well
I’m not surprised
You’re of their kin
You’re of their kind
 
Never mind
Never mind
The story’s told
With facts and lies
You own the world
So never mind
 
Never mind
Never mind
I live the life
I left behind
 
I live it full
I live it wide
Through layers of time
You can’t divide
 
My woman’s here
My children too
Their graves are safe
From ghosts like you
 
In places deep
With roots entwined
I live the life I left behind
