Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Running for Noah's Ark


i thought i saw the sun star
crying in the night
the moon was drunk and useless
its eyes were burning burning

what good is sorrow in heaven
and why do the angels fall
does gravity love you and me
will the gods come to finish us all

the man who stares at the ocean
the lass who cries in the dark
with tears that fall like her daughters
running for Noah's ark
running for Noah's ark

dance, dance, dance
spin in the wind and the rain
dance, dance, dance
dance like the lady of spain
come take a chance, come join the dance
dance in the wind and the rain

i thought i spied tomorrow
deep in the crystal ball
but there was only sorrow
and no one to answer the call

what's next, what's on the horizon
what comes with the morning sun
the lion asleep in the garden
doesn't bother with what's to be done


the man who stares at the ocean
the lass who cries in the dark
with tears that fall like her daughters
running for Noah's ark
running for Noah's ark

dance, dance, dance
the girls in the wind and the rain
dance, dance, dance
dance like the lady of spain
come take a chance, come join the dance
dance in the wind and the rain

we dropped the sun in the water
and washed the fire in rain
beneath our feet the earth was so sweet
we laughed away all the pain


what good is sorrow in heaven
and why do the angels fall
does gravity love you and me
will the gods come to finish us all

the man who stares at the ocean
the lass who cries in the dark
with tears that fall like her daughters
running for Noah's ark
running for Noah's ark

dance, dance, dance
spin in the wind and the rain, girls
dance, dance, dance
dance like the lady of spain
come take a chance, come join the dance
dance in the wind and the rain
