Mir

November 3, 1997

Silence, is such a fearful sound

Someone pull me, from this metal box

Far above the atmosphere

I’m looking down to where the oceans never sleep

They never sleep

 

Electric storms and solar flares

Flashing through my dreams

This waking nightmare

In the wakefulness of the ocean

There’s a medicine

For the spirit

That cannot rest

I’m waiting for the tidal wave

 

Close your eyes

Let the whirlpool, take you under

Close your eyes

Can you see the colours burn

Close your eyes

I’ll Take you…..

 

How long can I keep awake

Across this endless silence

And all these meteor showers

All this time, this precious time

Spinning through the vortex

Carried on the tide

The spiral of the whirlpool, is closing in

Let me carry you…..

 

Close your eyes

Let the whirlpool, drag you under

Close your eyes

Can you see the colours burn

Close your eyes

I’ll take you…..

 

Go to sleep

Go to sleep

Go to sleep

Go to sleep
