When eleven has turned into twelve
And darkness has shut down the world
Bells ring and the visions begin
The insects are singing a dead man's song

Falling into a space between hands
A space where the sound never ends
Surrounded by echo and fog
The shadows are singing a dead man's song

Separated from every sense
The outside connections collapse
Before you get high on the hope
There's something I think you should know
God gave up on us long ago
He's tired of hearing our dead man's song

When eleven has turned into four
You don't feel yourself any more
The movement has ground to a halt
And we're all left singing a dead man's song


from New World Record, released February 23, 1999
