lyrics

Unquiet dreams / On a hospital bed / Stirred the yearning / Unspoken, unsaid / I can’t keep up the pace / The tanks are overheating / Words begin to race / Go backwards and repeating / Slip out the cracks of early morning out the door/ Bleary eyed with coffee, vacuum, mop the floor / Cut the anchor, drift into the murky water / Pitched upon the waves, they carry me away / My hands are tied, I’m stuck to watch you as you falter / Fumbling these things that still I cannot alter / I will suffer the wait / With patience and with grace / Cough and whistle / In the gaol courtyard / Sup on thin gruel / Still under close guard / I can’t keep up the pace / The tanks are overheating/ Words begin to race / Go backwards and repeating / Slip out the cracks of early morning out the door/ Bleary eyed with coffee, vacuum, mop the floor / Cut the anchor, drift into the murky water / Pitched upon the waves, they carry me away / My hands are tied, I’m stuck to watch you as you falter / Fumbling these things that still I cannot alter / I will suffer the wait / With patience and with grace / Naivety, naivety, the bottom I will never see / Naivety, naivety, the fault that broke the back of me / The birds are screaming in the trees / They think they’ll die with dignity: naivety, naivety / I will suffer the wait.
