lyrics

all the angels have gone to sleep
and it seems that God's not watching anymore
the water's shallow but the sky is so deep,
the clouds are dark and heavy with the storm

one last look at the empty place
where we loved and fought and kept each other warm
we cleaned it out and we left the state
to forget the faults that others will be glad to confirm

and there's no point in wishing
there's just doing and being done to
and some of us humans
just can't help but wondering
what is it He's trying to prove
and there's no point in praying
when the emptiness falls on the room
and as for myself,
I just sleep through their suffering
please don't wake me up
in sleep I am satisfied

a proud procession of lazy days
the meals they mark the passing of the time
and “poor” is a costume my mother made
from the little scraps my father left behind

and there's no point in praying
it won't stop him from swallowing you
we were made from the stars
we were made to reflect him
and he, he was made to consume
so until that day
when our dreams have all turned towards our doom
I will take all the love and the pleasure that comes to me
but don't wake me up
in sleep I am satisfied
in sleep I am satisfied
