Chamber for Sleep (Part One)

 

I need to tell you you’re not wrong.

Don’t throw your body on the bomb.

Your face a visage, it still hurts.

Your gifts in flames while I watch them burn.

 

Chorus

I’ve been waiting a long time to see you disappear,

Colored clear – make me blind.

Took only moments – bored indoors.

Forget me now like it was before.  If this goes on,

I will always wait, your head to turn

While my heart breaks.

 

Chorus

Your stare is a gun. Unlit room.

Your body lit by the black moon. Make me a mantle,

And say grace.  Your prayers and visions slip away.

 

Chorus

I’ve been waiting a long time.

I’ve been waiting a long time.
