Something is dying tonight
There will be no more breath and no more light
I've burned every candle and extinguished every fear
And I've waited for your time to pass
To bring in my new year

Something is dying tonight
There will be no more struggle, no more fight
And I've known that I'd have to live
Through suffering and youth
But I'm the landlord of my dreams now
And my tenets rent is due

Something is dying
Something is dying inside of me
In spite of me
Something is dying tonight

My old paddles off to Saturn
Taking flight and the astronaut within me
Has no air supply at all so
He's plunging into the deep sea
With no parachute to fall

Something is dying tonight
I can't eat and I can't sleep, so I just write
'Cause I wanted you to lean on
To distract me from my feet
Oh, my karma will cure me
Out of bounds and out of reach

Something is dying
Something is dying inside of me
In spite of me

Something is dying
Something is dying inside of me
In spite of me

Author of 'Winds Of Change'
'Phantom Of The Opera'
Tenor of the Octet Frame
Spews volcanic lava

Silent heart of the sun
Not just the world of interest
Sun retires calls it a day
And sleeps a hundred winters

Darkness echoes thunder cries
And wagers war of laughter
Dolphins come form sea
And sky and the here after

Bumble bees crawl to the tops of trees
And call out to the children
Little girl awakes from dream
As Elvis leave the building

Elvis leaves the building
Elvis leaves the building
Elvis leaves the building
Elvis leaves the building

Down poor from the darkest cloud
And humiliated attention
Flasher of the third leads him
To the fourth dimension

Shotgun rings across a plan
Down goes another line
Harlem church cries sing refrain
A margin of design
