High above
The sickle moon
All senseless thought
Slips and drowns
A place, a time
Gone out of mind
Reaction swims
The opal tide
Ferry me down, leave well alone
Ferry me down, turn to stone

Here within
My phantom flesh
Welcome in
The glowing guest
Far inside
The absolute
Instinct leaves
Us standing mute

Ferry me down, leave well alone
Ferry me down, turn to stone

Heaven sent
Some dark marvel
Fool's gold
As cold as marble

High above
The sickle moon
Your hidden dreams
Chill and swoon
A place, a time
Gone out of sight
Pulse the blood
Statue of light

Ferry me down, leave well alone
Ferry me down, turn to stone

    General CommentNo idea what the song is about, but it deserves to have a comment because it is great. I really like the imagary and a lot of Peepshow; I don't know why people write off the latter half of the Banshees career. Peepshow was their last great album, and the others were patchy but had some strong classics of their own.
