About Laid So Low

"Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)" is a song by British band Tears for Fears. As Curt Smith had already departed the band by this time, "Laid So Low" was effectively the first release of the Roland Orzabal "solo" era of Tears For Fears which would span most of the 1990s. It was released as a single in 1992 to coincide with the release of the band's Greatest Hits album Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82–92). The song was a Top 20 hit in the UK, France, Italy and Poland; a Top 40 hit in Canada, Germany and the Netherlands; and in the US Hot Modern Rock Tracks. An earlier, mainly instrumental version of the song appeared as the B-side to the 1989 single "Sowing the Seeds of Love" where it was simply titled "Tears Roll Down". An animated video to this earlier version was included on the 1990 video collection Sowing the Seeds.

Chewed the bone down too low
Got fed on tea and sympathy
Blew the sail like the wind
I wish you were my enemy
I was humble for you
What a fool I've been to have
Laid so low for so long

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

Drew the blade way too slow
Was shackled by your honesty
Made a mess, I guess I have should have known
That life was lust and liberty
Not a chance mutation or the last temptation
Laid so low for so long, so low

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
