You Fold 'Round Your Stem  (---Original Version---)

I don’t know this neighbourhood very well,
So I got up early and went for a stroll...
I put my head into a strange flower,
And when I arose, it was no longer, the same hour...


Child of the moon
Flower of the night
You fold ‘round your stem
Bloom into earth again

Child of the moon
Serpent of the fire
My flesh seems uneven
Blood is a poison


I forgot my old intentions...
Sight can be the worst detention.


Child of the moon
Secret of the soul
No walls to this room
No escape from everything


Repercussions are collapsing all around me...
This focus makes filthy what once seemed clear.


So what in sleep did we forsake?
How must we forever stay aware?
We seemed always to be re-arranged,
There must be somewhere for us to remain...

All colours end in your pallid hue,
Our skins are alike, curled and hard...
If I could be built from the ground again,
I’d reach for the flesh that taught us the Flight...


Child of the moon
Flower of the night
You fold ‘round your stem
Bloom toward earth again
