Can you hear me now
Lying in this bed
Embedded in this written story?
Ireland’s Ancient East Bedtime Stories
Can you hear me now
Calling from this bed?
I’m spitting words but there’s no meaning, no

Now he’s taking his time
He’s got nothing to lose
But the first thing he sees
Is the last thing he choose

Can you hear me now
Sky is turning red
The streets are all gone
Am I dreaming, no
