The gray of evening fills the room
There's no need to look outside to see or feel the rain
And I reach across to touch her
But I know that she's not there

Rain keeps running down the window pane
Time is running out for me

Can't you see what you are doing to me?
Can't you see what you have done?
As I try to pass another long and sleepless night
A hundred crazy voices call my name

As I try to pass them by
I almost can believe that she is here
Here in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done?
Do you know what you've begun?
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

For the lonely people, empty rooms
And all the pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again?

Sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night
Only foreign city sirens can cut through
Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimize the cold
But they can't keep out the chilling sounds

Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming
That she is here with me?
Here in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done?
Do you know what you've begun?
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

[Incomprehensible] the lonely people, empty rooms
And all the pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again?
Could it be that we shall be together again?

In silence and darkness
We held each other near that night
We prayed it would last forever

Blood on the windows
Millions of ordinary people are there
They gaze at the scenery
They act as if it is perfectly clear
Take a look at the mountains
Take a look at the beautiful river of blood

The liquid surrounds me
I fight to rise from this river of hell
I stare round about me
And children are swimming and playing with boats
Their features are changing
Their bodies dissolve and I am alone

Now see what you've gone and done
Now see what you've gone and done

Well, now you never did see such a terrible thing
As [Incomprehensible] seen last night on the TV
Maybe if we're lucky, they will show it again
Such a terrible thing to see

But there's nothing you can do when you're next in line
But you've gotta go domino

Now I'm one with the living and I'm feeling just fine
I know just what I gotta do
Play the game of happiness and never let on
That it only lives on in a song

Well, there's nothing you can do when you're next in line
But you've gotta go domino

And do you know what you have done?
And do you know what you've begun?

In silence and darkness
Hold each other near tonight
For will it last forever?
Will it last forever?
Forever

There's nothing you can do when you're the next in line
But you've gotta go domino

Do you know, do you know?
Do you know what you have done?
Do you see what you've begun

'Cause there's nothing, nothing, nothing
There's nothing you can do
There's nothing you can do

Do you see?
Do you see what you have done?
