When I close my eyes
I see a light
I think it's God
Maybe I'm wrong

It could be a sign
It could be nothing but a brain reaction
The light's reflection, yeah

I used to see angels, I used to see angels
In the early morning
Now I see sunrise, now I see sunrise
Nothing audacious, nothing audacious
Look at me now
There's something wrong, there's nothing wrong
There's something wrong, there's nothing wrong

I saw the burning of eternal wisdom
Now I see failure, now I see failure
Imagination or intervention?
A holy image or a chemical vision?
There's something there, there's nothing there
There's something there, there's nothing there

Cease light!
Stay the light!
Be with me
We'll live forever

I saw the dawning of a new condition
Now I see nature, now I see nature
I saw my sisters, I saw my brothers
Now I see strangers, now I see strangers
There is no time, there's too much time
There is no time, there's too much time

Cease light!
Stay the light!
Be with me
We'll live forever

    General CommentThis song is often introduced as 'a song about following god'. But it also questions the working of god (if he exists, i dont know) with lines such as 'Now I see failure, now I see failure
    Imagination or intervention?'' suggesting questioning of both yourself and society
