Permanent Daylight

The easiest way to sleep at night
Is to carry on believing that I don’t exist
The easiest way to sell your soul
Is to carry on believing we don’t exist
It must be hard, hard, with your head on backwards



Released: September 1994
Found on: My Iron Lung single and EP

This song was part of the band’s mid-1993 live set as an instrumental, and Thom explained that it had been offered for a soundtrack but ultimately rejected. It was, at this time, much shorter then it is on the My Iron Lung EP. 

This song was apparently written as a tribute to Sonic Youth.
