lyrics

A massacre in a field I recognized
before I ever woke,
in the moonlight,
where the raiders slit your throat.
A souvenir from a life I'll never live:
I kissed you on the lips
in a mangrove,
where the blood came out in drips --
I came to save you.

Dream on, where I can lean on you.
Dream off, and when I come to, you're lost.
We grow alone, and we shake,
but when our eyes close, we wake.
Dream on, where I can lean on you.

The silhouette of a face misplaced in time
at Merriweather Post,
but in the treetops
I could overhear your ghost.
The mezzanine of the end of days untied --
the belly of the beast --
but on the inside,
you were always at least
someone to lean on.

Dream on, where I can lean on you.
Dream off, and when I come to, you're lost.
We grow alone, and we shake,
but when our eyes close, we wake.
Dream on, where I can lean on you.
Dream off, and when I come to --

What is the historicity of one? How does fear become paranoia, and discovery seizure? ... more
