Church – Stop lyrics

Ok stop, stop! (spoken)
How long?
Long enough to know I don't know any more
How deep? Deep inside a surging red rider
How far?
Far enough to see your shadow
How soon?
Soon this will all be gone, all be gone
Now why can't you stop?
Now why can't you just stop?

How near?
Nearly midnight in 1999's last party
How strange?
Stranger than fiction to the ear
How much?
Much more than I had ever hoped
How close?
Close enough to know that we were gone, we were gone

Now why can't you stop?
Now why can't you just stop?

Wake up slowly, I've been sleeping four hundred years
All my memories all my feelings
All is revealed
Leave me gently, hear me faintly
Then discard... Discard... Discard
