Stagnation Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Here today the red sky tells his tale
But the only listening eyes are mine
There is peace amongst the hills
And the night will cover all my pride
Blessed are they who smile from bodies free
Seems to me like any other crowd
Who are waiting to be saved

Wait, there still is time for washing in the pool
Wash away the past
Moon, my long lost friend is smiling from above
Smiling at my tears
Come, we'll walk the path to take us to my home
Keep outside the night
The ice cold knife has come to decorate the dead
Somehow

And each will find a home and there will still be time
For loving, my friend, you are there
And will I wait for ever, beside the silent mirror
And fish for bitter minnows, amongst the weeds and slimy water

I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I said I wanna sit down
I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I said I wanna sit down
I wanna drink, I wanna drink
To take all the dust and the dirt from my throat
I wanna drink, I wanna drink
To wash out the filth that is deep in my guts
I wanna drink

Then let us drink, then let us smile, then let us go
