    Over the slow slide of continents
    Over the salt pans pipelines masts and pavilions
    Shimmering crescent moon recedes into working dawn --
    Lone crow against pallid sky
    Single plume of white smoke on yellow speckled plain
    Yellowing leaves sparkle in cold breeze --
    Wave patterns among wave patterns
    Particles disperse and rejoin Dissolve and reform like the lining of a womb
    Still The cold of your absence blows from
    The silent TV, the parking lot The balcony with clothes waving good-bye hello
    In the rising day You keep fading away Don't
    I know that you're always around
    I can reach you if I try Lily of the midnight sky
    Solders of sunrise -- shooting into a forest of flowers
    Slow motion Petals float into pink crimson white
    Grow wings Flutter into mountainous distance
    Flutter like a stadium full of applauding hands
    I raise a fist to the marauding sun that has hidden you away
    I'm the rag in a bottle of gasoline
    Longing to ignite Ich will alles All of you --
    Shining on the panther skin of night
    Mirrored in a black lake in a night that glistens like blood on gold
    Nobody else could be you If only I could see you
    I should be able to touch you somehow I can reach you if
    I try Lily of the midnight sky
    While you look from on high Spare a smile as
    I Put on my dog mask and howl for you
    I can reach you if I try Lily of the midnight sky
