There is Hunting in Heaven

lyrics

jump sheep for the stones that broke you
jump sheep for the lash on your back
jump sheep for the years that slip out through the cracks

one for the ocean inside you
and another for the ones on the rise
and one for the vicious black hole, sucking night

the archer is wake
the swan is flying
gold against blue
our wills are undying
sleep, sleep––sleep safe till tomorrow.

sleep, sleep, sleep safe, till tomorrow!
sleep sleep.. sleep safe till tomorrow!


and as the days pass us by, we’re losing sleep
we only get what we want, not what we need
and every second explodes, we’re at our knees
and every day is a joke, it’s such a SCREAM!!

jump sheep for destruction behind you
leaving the dead where they lay
and a kiss of bitter wind on your forehead
whishes every stitch torn away

and wake!
oh we'll wake!
the archer is wake
the swan is flying
gold against blue
our wills are undying
sleep, sleep––sleep safe till tomorrow.

sleep, sleep, sleep safe, till tomorrow!
sleep sleep.. sleep safe till tomorrow!



there is hunting in heaven
there is hunting in heaven
sleep safe, 'till tomorrow.


there is hunting in heaven.
