    "long is the night
    long as the shame of the man
    who can't manage to die long
    under the lamppost his naked eye swing
    and his eye, blind with the breath of gin
    and the smell of a blond girl's wet flesh under his nails
    oh god, how long is the night

    must they drag the sky away
    let the earth not lead me on
    must they drag the sky away
    and lay me long in stillness
    long in stillness for night
    oh how long is the night
    deliver me from this night

    it happened on a friday
    my life ran on with fasting
    the air oozed vapours of lemon

    and the fishbone stuck into my craw
    when out of the gutted fish i lifted
    a ring which cast for at the time of my birth
    feel in the river of night

    feel in the river of night
    where it sank i threw it back to the night

    must they drag the sky away
    let the earth not lead me on
    must they drag the sky away
    and lay me long in stillness
    long in stillness for night
    oh how long is the night
    deliver me from this night"
