Testo domino - genesis

The grey of evening fills the room

No need to look outside

Oh to see or feel the rain



I reach across to touch her

But I know that she's not there

Rain keeps running down the window pane

Time is running out for me



Can't you see what you are doing to me

Can't you see what you have done

As I try to pass another long and sleepless night

A hundred crazy voices call my name

As I try to pass them by

I can almost believe that she is here

She's in the glow of the night



Do you know what you have done

Do you know what you've begun

Do you see we shall never be together again

All of my life



Oh the lonely people
the empty rooms

Pointless violence
silent tombs

Could it be that we shall be together again



Sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night

Only foreign city sirens can cut through

Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimise the cold

But they can't keep out the chilling sounds

Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming

That she is here with me

She's in the glow of the night



Do you know what you have done

Do you know what you've begun

Do you see we shall never be together again

All of my life



Oh the lonely people
the empty rooms

Pointless violence
silent tombs

Could it be that we shall be together again

Yes
could it be that we shall be together again



In silence and darkness

We held each other near that night

We prayed it would last forever

Forever



Blood on the windows

Millions of ordinary people are there

They gaze at the scenery

They act as if it is perfectly clear

Take a look at the mountains

Take a look at the beautiful river of blood



The liquid surrounds me

I fight to rise from this river of hell

I stare round about me

Children are swimming and playing with boats

Their features are changing

Their bodies dissolve and I am alone

I am alone



Now see what you've gone and done

Now see what you've gone and done



Now you never did see such a terrible thing

As was seen last night on TV

Maybe if we're lucky
they will show it again

Such a terrible thing to see

There's nothing you can do when you're the next in line

You've got to go Domino



Now I'm one with the living and I'm feeling just fine

I know just what I must do

Play the game of happiness and never let on

That it only lives on in a song

No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line

You've got to go Domino



Do you know -

- What you have done

Do you know -

Do you know what you've begun



In silence and darkness

Hold each other near tonight

And pray it will last forever

Forever

Will last forever

Forever



No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line

You've got to go Domino



Do you know -

- What you have done

Do you know -

Do you know what you've begun
