synesthesia lyrics – porcupine tree


[written by steven wilson]

i’m sending you a letter
because i don’t think there’s much time
time to clear the cobwebs
time to bear the crime

it’s only a number
it’s only a death
another soldier died in action
the telegram regrets

i’m lying on a stretcher
they’re lying to my face
there’s no-one left to help me
i’m just a waste of sp*ce

it’s a matter of moments
i’ll be dead before you’ve read
there’s blood on the table
and my back is full of lead
