    Lyrics

    And there, the bones do sleep
    And there the soul is soul
    And there the gods do weep
    When the angels fall

    But there the thoughts won't keep
    And here the blood runs cold
    And here the grave is deep
    And the devil calls

    Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
    Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
    Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
    In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?

    Brought my voice, just noise to poor old Silence
    A clanging toy, a clanging toy
    Empty, strident
    Brought my eyes, in utter ruin, sightless
    The tears I cried, the tears I cried
    Still so frightened

    Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
    Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
    Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
    In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?

    Where the silver streets? Where the blossoming?
    Where osunds so sweet?
    Where songs of spring?
    Where words for things?
    Where golden memories?
    Where quiet seas?
    Where certainty?

    Where all might cease, the talk, the want, the posturing?

    Brought my heart to feed, but my mouth was fire
    Brought the earth my seed, but it would not flower
    Where the jeweled stream? Where the eased desire?
    In some fool's dream? In the ending hour?

    Where poetry?
    Where mystic harmonies?

    Where love that frees?
    Where security?

    Where sympathy?
    Where tranquility?
    Where rest in peace?

    In the dream? Or in the fire?

    Mouth on fire
    Mouth on fire
