Absolute Midnight

from by Jeremy Blake

lyrics

Close your eyes
Count to ten
Take a breath
Do it again
Another thing to pass the time

You move your arm
You shift in space
Awake to dream
Asleep to pace
Another thing to pass the time

You walk alone
To the sea
You hear the voice
But cannot see

It tells you ways to pass the time

Imagine life below the waves
And wonder how a man behaves
When all he can is pass the time

Oh the world, the world will go on without me
This is certain sure
And if you come, if you come to doubt in me
I’ll leave and close the door

All your plans have come undone
A haunted heart, a loaded gun
Will find a way to pass the time

And in your dreams you're in the sea
Beneath the waves you finally see
All the ways to pass the time

Oh the world, the world will go on without me
This is certain sure
And if you come, if you come to doubt in me
I’ll leave and close the door
