    General CommentTHIS IS NOT AN INSTUMENTAL

    I know one of the lyrics is "Did you see? Did you hear?"
    It's buried in the mix, but they are there.

    General CommentThe track starts with with:

    "I've been reading about, looking at pictures of you is..."

    I can make out a scattered half of the lyrics in the first half of the song, like "sick humour.. death is no festival".
    A recognisable part is:

    "many people die too late, a few too early [something] tried to die right on time"

    which is a rough quote from Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Nietszche.

    The clearest section is:

    "I could no longer see or hear or feel anything. I could see and hear and feel everything simultaneously. I awake in the corridor to Frederick smiling, standing over me. 'I didn't tell you,' he says, 'how did you know? How did you know?' He smiled and walked off. From where I was lying I could see the [sandpit exterior and the swings?]"

    After that the instruments get louder and the lyrics in the final third are completely buried.
