Porcupine Tree – Lazarus lyrics

As the cheerless towns pass my window
I can see a washed out moon through the fog
And then a voice inside my head breaks the analogue
And says

"Follow me down to the valley below
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul"

I survived against the will of my twisted folk
But in the deafness of my world the silence broke
And said

"Follow me down to the valley below
You know Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul"

"My David don't you worry
This cold world is not for you
So rest your head upon me
I have strength to carry you"

(Ghosts of the twenties rising Golden summers just holding you)

"Follow me down to the valley below
You know
Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
Come to us Lazarus
It's time for you to go"

  • u
    In my opinion, the song lazarus by porcupine tree refers to lazarus of bethany from the gospel of john, in which jesus restores him to life four days after his death. The song is meant to call lazarus back to the world of the dead as indicated by the lyrics "follow me down to the valley below". It shows a struggle faced by us all in the cynical and cold world that no longer has the happiness or the spirit that makes us want to live in the world. One possible interpretation is that all the lines which are spoken by someone is the voice inside us, or god.
