Sleep comes to everyone while we wait for the Sunday afternoons
Sleep comes to everyone, everyone maybe yeah, but you
Sleep comes to everyone while we wait, wide awake and blue
Sleep comes to everyone, everyone maybe, yeah, but me and you

And so I give myself away, to everybody everyday
And so I give myself to you, and you need it more than I do
And so I give myself away, unto everybody everyday
And so I give myself to you, and you need it more than I do

Sleep comes to everyone while we wait for the Sunday afternoons
And sleep comes to everyone, everyone maybe, yeah, but you
And I had this one figured out, that's why the suicide machine is built for two
A simple sick device devised to overload on love
To bring us colored dreams and sound tracked waves of fun

And so I give myself away, to everybody everyday
And so I give myself to you, and you need it more than I do
And so I give myself away, to everybody everyday
And so I give myself to you, and you need it more than I do

Sleep comes to no one else like we have falling through the ground,
Fulfilling promises of endless summer nights, I'm losing ground, you're losing sound
Somewhere through a thousand blues a dragonfly descends with just a whisper,
"I'm lonelier than God"
And all my wishes spin the fishes in the air and every one
A different shade of you

And to the left where up is down now stands a zebra
Made of shapes of me, and silver and the sun
So bring no guilt with you up above the flat line
Let's just hit the sky exploding into one

    General CommentOne of the greatest songs not only by Hum, but any band, period. Like Gubar69 said above, calm and beautiful vocally. Musically it meanders through quiet and stark moments that build in intensity to the infamous Hum "wall of sound" without ever picking up tempo. Lyrically it's pure poetry.

    To me this song is about love between two people that is so intense and overwhelming, that the two become one (suicide of the individual partners as they become one) ref: "that's why the suicide machine is built for two, a simple sick device devised to overload on love" and "let's just hit the sky exploding into one".
    So intense that they've lost all sense of direction: "and to the left where up is down"; their world is literally turned upsidedown.
