Van der Graaf Generator Darkness (11/11) Lyrics

The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other Track Listing
12" Vinyl 1
  • 1 Darkness (11/11)
  • 2 Refugees
  • 3 White Hammer
  • 4 Whatever Would Robert Have Said?
  • 5 Out of My Book
  • 6 After the Flood
  • Day dawns dark, it now numbers infinity.
    Life crawls from the past, watching in wonder
    I trace its patterns in me.
    Tomorrow's tomorrow is birth again.
    Boats burn the bridge in the fens;
    The time of the past returns to my life
    And uses it.

    Don't blame me for the letters
    That may form in the sand;
    Don't look in my eyes, you may see all the numbers
    That stretch in my sky and color my hand.
    Don't say that I'm wrong in imagining
    That the voice of my life cannot sing.
    Fate enters and talks in old words:
    They amuse it.

    The hands shine darkly and white:
    Only in dark they appear.
    Bless the baby born today,
    Flying in pitch, flying on fear.

    They shine in my eyes and touch my face
    Where I have seen them placed before;
    Don't blame me, please, for the fate that falls:
    I did not choose it.
    I did not, no no, I did not
    I truly did not choose it.
