Mina Loy (M.O.H.)

[BC Solo]

The guys I worked with on the album would label the soundscapes I had. This song was originally called "My Old Heart" and they abbreviated the name in the sound file as "M.O.H." At first I wasn't sure about my lyrics to "Mina Loy" because I felt like I was returning to one of my old themes -- rage. Yet it expressed my general feeling of paranoia. I live in Chicago and I love my city so much -- I love it like a woman. I was thinking how I'd feel if anyone ever set off a dirty bomb and destroyed this place I love so much. This is not some vague Soviet threat. It's the thought that someone on a whim can put their finger on a map and destroy something beautiful. (BC, SheKnows.com interview Aug. 2005)

 

Lyrics

the siren calls outside
they want to kill us all
innocents, wounded souls
full of rage
nowhere to go

consequences be they may
i resolve to never change
i so vow to never yield

can i give my old heart, to you?
can i give my old heart, to you?

cause when this feeling starts
that's when i blow it all away

here, you're born they'll say
to die afraid, to lie awake

it's plain the wars have won
the days of judgement rise
for innocents, wounded souls
how could they know?
they're burning cold
paranoias be they may
i resolve to never change

can i give my old heart, to you?
can i give my old heart, to you?

cause when this feeling starts
that's when i rip it all apart

alright
the end's in sight
we're born to die
one thousand times

i'm just one wish away
i'm just one wish away from you kid

i'm just one wish away
i'm just one wish away from you kid

i'm not so innocent
i'm not so innocent now kid

can i give my old heart, to you?
can i give my old heart, to you?

my old heart
my old heart
my old heart
my old heart
