Extinguish my eyes, I’ll go on seeing you.
Seal my ears, I’ll go on hearing you.
And without feet I can make my way to you,
without a mouth I can swear your name.
Break off my arms, I’ll take hold of you
with my heart as with a hand.
Stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat.
And if you consume my brain with fire,
I’ll feel you burn in every drop of my blood.

you’ve got a new horizon, it’s ephemeral style,
a melancholy town where we never smile.
and all i wanna hear is the message beep,
my dreams, they’ve got to kiss, because i don’t get sleep no
