So you want to be left alone
The grass is overgrown
It's started to turn brown
And it's that time again

Gonna be drunk by ten
And I keep saying no
But he won't listen
His face all twisted closed

He will not sympathize
He will anaesthetize

Bones rattle in their cage
I know I heard him say
Come, come sweet oblivion
Keep closing my eyes
Keep me innocent
I'm further away the closer you come
I'll stand in your light to be forgiven

As silent as space
As old as the sun
Oh sweet oblivion

He's started heading down
And it's that time again
Gonna lie down instead
Impossible to know
What he's thinking
His face as blank as stone

He will not criticize
He tends to idolize

Visions gone to extreme
Sung to me in a dream
Come, come sweet oblivion
Keep closing my eyes
Keep me innocent
I'm further away the closer you come
I'll stand in your light to be forgiven

As silent as space
As warm as the sun
Oh sweet oblivion
Come come sweet oblivion
Keep closing my eyes
Keep me innocent
I'm further away the closer you come
I'll stand in your light to be forgiven
As silent as space,
Oh do and be done,
come sweet oblivion
