Current 93 – Walking Like Shadow lyrics

I lose myself
And dream of worlds
That lie between
Your fingers

And hide behind
Your eyes,
And dream of forests
And forts of snow

Where we may kneel
And hold each other
In our still
Young arms
'Till the moon
Goes out...
And sleep and kiss

You know it's time
It's only time
Who passes
Between us

Our shadows long
On the grass behind us
In the bushes
And the fields

The poppies
Drowsing still
As the sun
Drops down

In system cocoon
Meet silent children
It's only time
Who lies between us
It's only time
Who creeps toward us
And not some croaches
At our door

It's 7 o'clock
Stuck forever
His face
Behind the dial

When the snake
Is dead
They put roses
In their head
When the roses
They put diamonds
In their eye

We all speak
Unknown languages
To each other
We're all half dead

The motion of the hand
The skeletal grace
Under bright yellow moon

We are walking like shadow
You and I
You and I
We 're walking like shadow
You and I
