"Cracks in the Canvas" as written by and John Parish P J Harvey....
Had do we cope
With the days after a death?
Empty days, nothing left
Not even a funeral

I see shapes falling inside
Paintings
Animals and humans, row upon row
Walking toward something
Waiting for something

I'm looking for an answer,
Me and a million others
Disbelievers
Deserted lovers
Dear God,
You better not let me down this time

Cracks in the canvas
Look like roads
That never end

    General CommentI got this:

    How do we cope
    (Now we go to sleep)
    With the days after a death
    Empty days
    (You have no one to wait for)
    Nothing left
    Not even a funeral
    I see shapes forming inside paintings
    animals and humans feet on road
    (and now, here's another voice)
    walking towards something
    waiting for something
    (Outside the window)
    I'm looking for an answer
    me and a million others
    (The voices of ten thousand angels)
    disbelievers, deserted lovers
    Dear god you better not let me down this time
    (ten thousand lives that lived before)
    Cracks in the canvas
    look like roads that never end.

    General CommentActually, I think she's singing: "Honey, go to sleep. You have no one to wait for. But honey, here's another voice."
