“They Wake” Video and Lyrics

You may seek the wind among the reeds
You may give the girls the love they need
The love they need is gold, the love is never doomed
The love they want is gilded with a lavish gloom

They wake, they marry and they cry
They wake to hear stories when they die
Stories told with joy, stories often true
Stories when their cleverness was calling you

Pay no heed to the tenor of the times
I will destroy the wisdom of the wise

They say that the lights were left on until dawn

They wake beneath the slanting sun
They wake without telling anyone
About the winter seeds, the songs too hard to sing
The pleasures wide awake in nearly everything

Pay no heed to the tenor of the times
I will destroy the wisdom of the wise

They say that the lights were left on until dawn
