In a dream he came to me, like a wizard in a make believe
Said he'd show me how to breathe
Said he'd carry me across the sea
Gonna wake me from my sleep
Pulling me up my soul to keep
Say the words but never speak
Make me strong but keep me weak

Want to touch the starry goat
See the archer with his bow
Watch the lion running free
And the scales that tip for me
And he's gonna take me there

Put out the stars, they are no use tonight
There are no words to make it right
From what has been to what has begun
Beneath the setting sun
Undream these empty hopes of mine
Unread your words between the lines
And draw some strength from what we've done
Beneath the setting sun

Now he's bringing me to my knees
From the veins the love did bleed
Like a film without a screen or a ghost that's never seen
Tried to stop him but he closed the door
Want to take him to a time before
See the things that I've seen
Be the people that I've been

Touch the fish in heavens sea
Watch the crab upon the beach
Fire glows between the twins
I carry water for my sins
And the sun is coming down

Put out the stars, they are no use tonight
There are no words to make it right
From what has been to what has begun
Beneath the setting sun
Undream these empty hopes of mine
Unread your words between the lines
And draw some strength from what we've done
Beneath the setting sun

You said you'd walk with me again
Like a bull you burst my dam
Horns as sharp as any ram
Now the scorpion has stung
I'm like a virgin on the run
I dont think he's coming home

Put out the stars they are no use tonight
There are no words to make it right
From what has been to what has begun
Beneath the setting sun

Unlearn each game we had to play
Unsay each promise that we made
The war is lost but the battle is won
Beneath the setting sun
