Mechanics of Light

I see the way it works
I hear of light beams breaking
and the way it’s sometimes
left unsaid
and of poetry of cracking minds
that read for a thousand years

The Mechanics of light
The Mechanics of sound
They wrote the dream
Reach through machine
The Mechanics of light
The Mechanics of sound

He’s the one alone
the one with empty eyes
and there’s something about
the way that he died
he just sits there on that floor
in the dark, dark corner
like he’s been there
four thousand years

The Mechanics of light
The Mechanics of sound
They wrote the dream
Reach through machine
The Mechanics of light
The Mechanics of sound

Please don’t let them in
don’t let them go
Please don’t let them in
Don’t let them go
