(Mark Hollis / Tim Friese-Greene)
When do you know you know
You know you learn
Do you die in sin or born again
With will to wind and wander climb
Through needle neck to consent
When do you know you know
You know you learn
Arrive at spring once again
And still to rise beyond the tide
And mortal track
Fretful or fair
By straw by strap
Toughening tear
Dust to dust to dust to dust
For what is worth upon me
Nascent, naissant
