"The Sleeper" as written by and Nick Hemming....
Someday we all shall cease to exist
Someday our towers will fall
Roots will reclaim the bricks that we laid
Worms will reclaim this soil

You get alone, you get stoned
Sometimes you need someone
You get alone, you get cold
Sometimes you need someone

Salt in the ocean raises the words
Prised from a foreign tongue
We are but mayflies caught on the breeze
Lit by a fading sun

You get alone, you get stoned
Sometimes you need someone
You get alone, you get cold
Sometimes you need someone

You need someone

You get alone, you get stoned
Sometimes you need someone
You get alone, you get cold
Someones you need someone

You need someone

Someday this all shall cease to exist
Someday our towers will fall
Roots will reclaim the bricks that we laid
Worms will reclaim this soil
