phrasepraise_2

A sleeping explorer
his wandering mind
crossed over the border
a mind like a cemetery
where the corpses
are turning
where the bodies
twist deep
in the frozen grip
of a dreamless sleep
then the lowest
comes up
like a wreck
from the depths.
He hears night calling
and has dreams
of waking
here in this brightness
that burns like
slow lightening
he sees words
burnt in ice
reads, "The World is
a Wound".
Effects of the animal -
Animal sound effects
He says, "Death
he is my friend
He promised me
a quick end".
Says, "The world is
in pain
and should be
put down
and God is a sadist
and that he knows it".
The depths of the
night sky
reflects in his eye
He says,
"Everything changes
And everyone dies".
And the night
slits her veins
and the
darkness drains
and the void
rumbles in
like an
underground train...
Forever comes closer
the world is in pain
we all must be shown
we must realise
that everyone changes
and everything dies.

I've got something that my baby wants
And I've got something that my baby wants
And she's got something that I want too
Baby and I are through

I've been down to the bottom
With a bad, bad man
Down to the bottom babe
With a bad, bad man

Lay me down with your gentle hand

Well he said this darkness, it was untrue
And first he said this darkness, darlin',
It was untrue
And that there was no light to be found in you

But I know, darlin', that that's not true

And I had a dream so black
That I could not tell
Oh, honey, I had a dream so dark
That I could not tell

But I know that's just as well

And I don't know, babe,
Just where you've been
I don't know, darlin',
Just where you've been

But I've hung myself heavy here
Babe, I don't know where the hell I am

I thought that man, babe,
He might have something that I need
I thought that man, darlin',
He might have something that I need

But he had no anger
For you or for me
And, babe, I swear
That man never even knew I was here

Some of these friends of mine
How I miss them so
Good Lord, these sweet friends of mine
How I miss them so

But some of these, others beg
Well they're driving me around
On some cold, dark, and strange
And deathly roads

Take me down to your river
I want to see how it runs
Down to your river, darlin',
I want to know just how it runs

But if that man
Waits on the path
Then I know for good
That I'm done

And I got a feeling
That man, he's just begun

I've gotta dream
Every night I said to my self
Yeah, I gotta share it
Share it with somebody else

We can make a beautiful team
Oh baby, it's a beautiful dream
But what am I gonna do with it, baby?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't share with you?

I got some love
And baby it's the kind that will do
Yeah, I've gotta kiss
I gave to somebody like you

The moon is shining up above
But I've got a heart full of love
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
What am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't give it to you?

I can't throw it in the river
I can't toss it in the sea
I can't put it in a paper bag
So baby come and get from me

I've gotta dream
And every night I said to myself
Yeah, I gotta share it
Share it with somebody else
We can make a beautiful team
Well, baby it's a beautiful dream
Well, if I can't share it with you?
So what am I gonna do with it, baby?
Well, if I can't share it with you?
Well, if I can't share it
Well, if I can't share it
Well, if I can't share it with you?
