Sleep (The 3rd and the Mortal)

The day vanishes Withers like trodden grass Our whispers are wafting along by the breeze Through an open passage Absorbed by the night Conjure up the sleep Sleep, sleep stealing through us Cover our eyelids with silk Carrying someone Carrying someone in wavy water The ocean is troubled to its depths Thunderbolts and fireflies Play the grand piano Sear the sleeking silk The embryo cowers in fear And stares through the surface Fear, fear, striking fear Burying someone Burying someone in wavy waters
