"(Temet Nosce)" as written by and Frank Edward Wilson Frank Wilson....
Through the hem of evening
Into the flesh of the night
You step out to receive them
In the bruising light

You leave your bed of novels
You leave your hovering crown
You leave your wit and your mettle
And you come down

But it's only a minute then
'Til the hole in the canvas spreads
And it grows 'til there's nothing left

So if you even remember
Me after all that will come
Think of all I intended
Not what I've done

See me like an arrow
Still upon the bow
Set to the heart of the target
Hanging bright above

But it's only a minute then
'Til the shot is released and sent
And lost to the shifting wind, yeah

Oh they don't know you
Not like I do, not like us, Harriet
But they would love you
Just like I do, if they could, Harriet
'Cause what you are, and what you want
Are so far apart, and they're travelling on
Oh, what you are is staggering drunk
But I'll pick you up and I'll carry you off
They don't know you
Not like I know you, not like us, Harriet
But they would love you just like I love you
If they could, Harriet

Oh, Harriet
No oh, Harriet
