Please sleep, my darlin', sleep
Your cry for inspiration
Never reaches ears on distant stars

And every night our lonely planet
Slides across the universe
And I won't pretend, I understand

Please sleep, my darlin', sleep
Your death by information
Won't disturb the peace on distant stars

And even when you lock the doors
And slide behind the unlit shades
None of us saw strangers anymore

Fall asleep with the windows open
Come to me with the worst you've said and done
You'll close your eyes and see me
A little death makes life more meaningful
I stand no chance at all

Please sleep, my darlin', sleep
Your car crash in slow motion
Won't upset the pace on distant stars

And one by one the years of our lives
Stumble as the moments pass
So please hold on, please hold on

So fall asleep with the windows open
Come to me with the worst you've said and done
You'll close your eyes and see me
A little death makes life more meaningful
I stand no chance at all

Please sleep, my darlin', sleep
Please sleep, my darlin', sleep

So fall asleep with the windows open
Come to me with the worst you've said and done
You'll close your eyes and see me
A little death makes life more meaningful
I stand no chance at all

    Let's not pretend that mark wouldn't know that "little death" is another term for orgasm. I think it's about sex with a girl, even though it's not a good idea. A car crash in slow motion is a metaphor for doing something that's not going to end well, but you're doing it anyway. "i stand no chance at all. " you're giving into your lust against your better judgement.
