Sleep Of No Dreaming

Album: Signify (1996)

  • At the age of sixteen
    I grew out of hope
    I regarded the cosmos
    Through a circle of rope
    So I threw out my plans
    Ran on to the wheel
    And emptied my head
    Of all childish ideals
    The sleep of no feeling
    I married the first girl
    Who wasn't a man
    And smiled as the spiders
    Ran all over my hands
    Made a good living
    By dying it's true
    As the world in my TV
    Leaked onto my shoes Writer/s: STEVEN JOHN WILSON
