Machine Head – Now I Lay Thee Down lyrics

I want to know
How it feels
When we die
Can you take me under?

Dream over
Grieve no more
And breathe one last time
Now I lay thee down

She watched me leave
Me bleeding
On the floor
As she takes me under


Godless mimicry
Where lights cemetery
Flashes of the angel's ivory wings
Images so many broken dreams
Of pain

Follow the light into the tunnel
Or will it end up in a black hole?
Follow the light into the tunnel,
Dead in it's end

Was it love?
Was it murder?
Within the eyes of the beholder

What have I done?
I've gone and killed the only one I love
How could I do this?
I'm screaming at God
Why do you curse me?
Fuck it, load it, sever the day


Now I lay thee down,
