Regrets collect like old friends / Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way / And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh / But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong / It's always darkest before the dawn

Wanna add what I said in the Urban thread too, which is that the tracklist placing of Godcelerate is flawfree. Accelerate and Pipe go perfectly together, I'm in love with the musical and lyrical flow between them, it's sexxxxy as fuck.

When I first heard it I wasn't really feeling it but like by the third listen I was lol Now I can't get enough of it. XD Though that slow down before "Accelerate" kills me when I key in on it lol

Same here. It’s a grower for sure! It‘ll age perfectly. I think I’ll still listen to it in a few years from now.

As people said, it's a grower.
I love the song and it's one of my favourites on the album, but I don't think it was a good idea to release as the first promo single.
People who aren't casual fans prolly never gave it a chance after one listening (i didn't like it at all as well).

just popping in to say that Accelerate sounds MUCH better with the flow of the album, especially with the powerful Don't Need It Anymore intro - signals a change in the tone of the album, IMO

Its necessary for the album. The album like a journey. an experience. Not just "visual album" (the heck is this term is).

I love it even more.

It really challenges the listener (in a good way). Once you get it, it's just all kinds of genius. Probably my favorite first Xtina single.

Still fresh after all these listens. I command her audacity of releasing this first. It’s the same mindset that makes her the bold artist that released Dirrty first. And speaking of Ahead of her time or doing things left field, this is pure Christina’s artist statement.

She’s a musical genius.

Still fresh and a bop.

My husband sang a few lines the other day. Was not sure if he was mocking me or whatever but maybe this song is on his mind too and he hated this song.
People shit on her now because they have some sad life and jealousy. Those who celebrate her now are the true winners because you live in the moment and appreciate true beauty and talent while it is still here.

I love how different this song is. It's nothing I would have ever expected from Christina and yet I love it.
