Each night I close my eyes and wonder what will come of me in days to follow
I lay awake and after coutless hours I just can't think straight
Turn in, fade, pass out
Yet, in this simple way we offer
To destroy all we can't figure out
In our simple lives, unconscious
We employ our skills from underground

To seek what we've never seen
To explore, deep inside

The mornings greet me with grey days and tear-stained windowsills and pillowcases
I get dressed and go to work
Bloody noses, red like roses pose as sanctuary
When I just get a minute to myself
And in this simple way, we offer
To destroy all we can't figure out
In our simple lives, unconscious
We emply our skills from the underground

To seek what we've never seen
To find, what we never knew
To explore deep, inside

Kill me
Kill me won't you
Make me sleep again
Kill me
Kill me won't you

To see what we've never seen
To find what we've never knew
To go where we'd never dared
To explore
Deep...

    General Commentat the end, the lyrics are

    Kill me
    won't you kill me
    let me sleep again
    Kill me
    don't relate your memories
    kill me
    Kill me won't you
