The White Noise: The Visitation

The White Noise: The Visitation, 1969

 

aus der LP An Electric Storm

[Stimme aus dem Hintergrund, dem Jenseits]

Young girl with roses in her eyes
Sits on a bed of white sheets
The lights are off the gloom begins
To thicken as she waits

 
   
She's waiting alone in the dark
waiting
Where is the sun and the flowered park
we're always waiting
Why do they always meet in shadow  
   

Young girl with roses in her eyes

I'm as close as your breathing
Waits for the phosphorescent mouth but you can't hear me

It's blue and comes upon her neck
In whispers like dry grass

 
   
She's waiting for her lover's voice I tried to talk to you
The sun is gone the music plays
but you wouldn't listen
From the sheet corner and she cries  

[Zu hören: Motorradunfall - Mädchenstimme schreit auf]
Young girl with roses in her eyes
Hugs close the dark and cries
The words she hears are weak
Her lover's not asleep he's dead

She feels his breathing by her side
He reaches across the border
Stretching his boneless hand towards her

 
   
  Death is silent painless
I didn't know what happened
I was suddenly standing above my body
while you looked on
too much in shock for tears
I tried to speak
but couldn't
I tried to talk to you
but you wouldn't listen
and now we meet
like guilty lovers in the dark
for such a hopeless moment
and even as we meet I feel you slipping from me
and I go back
to my darkness
   
The girl with roses in her eyes my spirit lingers after you like a faint stream of clouds
Speaks with her lover who is here
my mouth hovers about you forever
Like vines their voices intertwine
 
It is all they have
I see you waiting for me
summoning up the power as the light dies
She struggles to hold him back
the light we loved
He clutches but the power is gone
 
And the pillow turnes to chalk  
 

I tried to speak but couldn't
and now we meet like guilty lovers in the dark for such a hopeless moment
and even as we meet I feel you slipping from me
and I go back to my darkness
