REST FROM BREATHING

we all believe in something
we all believe the same thing
inconsolate in mourning
we miss our pretty darling
the silver sheets are twisted
his body cold and silent
his silver lips are parted
let's whisper close departed

we all believe in something
we all believe the same thing
his eyes are closed with silver
his blood has come to resting
believing silver seething
our silver coins are minted
with pictures cast in silver
of rulers now departed

the silver mirror's showing
our lover's lost his breathing
the fog of life is clearing
his blood has come to resting

we all believe in something
we all believe the same thing
our lover's life was wasted
the silver snake has struck him
and now his breath has left him
in silver sheets we wrap him
now whisper close departed
and kiss his silver lips

we all believe in something
we all believe the same thing
the silver sheets are burning
the silver flames are leaping
our eyes are closed with silver
we're only silver seeing
and now that life is leaving
we search for silver meaning

the silver mirror's showing
our lover's stopped his breathing
the fog of life is clearing
his blood has come to resting
