Lyrics:(Hammill)

Tonight, before you lay down to the sweetness of your sleep
do you question
your surrender to the drop from Lover's Leap
or does the anaesthetic darkness take hold on its
very own?
Does your body rise in service with not one dissenting groan?
These waking
dreams of life and death
in the mirror are twisted and buckled,
lashes flicker, a catch of
breath,
skin whitening at the knuckles.
The army of sleepwalkers shake their limbs and are
loose
and though I am a talker, I can phrase no excuse
not to rise again.
In the
chorus of the night-time I belong
and I, like you, must dance to that moonlight song
and
in the end I too must pay the cost of this life.
If all is lost none is known
and how
could we lose what we've never owned?
Oh, I'd search out every knowledge that I could find,

unravel all the mysteries of mind,
if I only had time,
if I only had time,
but
soon my time is ended... ended, soon my time is ended.
