Figure of divine perfection

No one's loved with more affection

Soul to soul we've breathed

Oh, I won't let The Fates succeed


Worried bits of contemplation

Whispered bits of conversation

Unaffected Orderlies

Disinfected rooms and Hallways


And If you Sleep, You sleep with God

And if I cry it's for my heart

Why should I hope to make it through ?

'Cause if you sleep , I'll sleep, to


Jagged thorn sand pretty petals

Butterflies and stinging nettles

Sunny days and nights of blackness

But where's the Joy to cure my sadness


( Chorus )


Gleaming cars and covered faces

Teary eyes in hallowed places

Grass and granite stone

No one's been more all alone


( Chorus )
