Porcupine Tree - Collapse The Light Into Earth Lyrics




I won't shiver in the cold
I won't let the shadows take their toll
I won't cover my head in the dark
And I won't forget you when we part

Collapse the Light Into Earth

I won't heal given time
I won't try to change your mind
I won't feel better in the cold light of day
But I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to stay

Collapse the Light Into Earth

Porcupine Tree Collapse The Light Into Earth Comments
  1. pietro meloni

    Shine On

  2. Mark Creemore

    Goddamn...this song reminds me of how I fucked up what should have been the love of my life. Goddamn. This song strikes home.😞

  3. Omair Sheikh

    One of my favourite things ever. Stunning through and through

  4. Slevin

    I always imagined this song to be about a serial killer/murderer talking to his dark side. Battling with the bit of good he has left in him, but at the same time, loving the evil that developed.

    Maybe it’s a conversation he is having with himself while being sentenced to death, or maybe he has gotten away with his crimes.

    I always think of the film “Mr. Brooks” when listening to this

  5. יובל לוי

    It is great song .
    When my dog died before 5 years ago this song was played in the radio and I was with her .
    This song played in the perfect timing because some of the lyrics connected to what I feel to my dog . She was and still special to me and that song touched in sensetive part in my soul.
    Every year in 22 of june since then I play this song for her to remember . So thank you porcupine tree that you wrote something that I can relate to him and have a lot of meaning to me .

    I feel you, I don't know what I'm gonna do when *my* little boy one day won't be there anymore...almost 11 years and counting. Only for the knowledge that I gave him a good life beginning to end.

  6. vopatril

    When a sad song produces the warmest feeling inside you...

  7. Weronika Synowiec

    So touching and magical...

  8. Anni Ghazaryan

    is it just a song or a hug?

    purpletoe101

    Both and soooooooo much more

  9. john pappas

    looks like the album cover is a Spock mind meld

  10. portishphonic

    I remember when I first listened to this song. I was at my best friend's house, in 2006, and I remember she was studying for her driving licence, while I was completely heartbroken. She had to go out for a few hours and I was left there by myself in front of her PC when I discovered this song. I listened to it for at least an hour and couldn't believe how amazing it was. She found me in tears when she came back. This was my first Porcupine Tree song and I will always cherish it dearly.

    Jeffrey Moutia

    Cheers mate...

  11. Jessica Snyder

    Chills are throughout my body.

  12. Big Chungus

    Thom Yorke would be proud of this composition.

  13. Sapphy Megatron

    This album is a piece of musical artistry, grace, and skill. Highly recommend.

  14. eliza graves

    luv this song

  15. DadoPlath

    My favourite song of all time. We are only 123.808 at the moment. We are so elitist.

  16. CJ Snyder

    Whatever or whoever it was that hurt you, it's okay. Things will get better. Without darkness, how are we to know what the light looks like?

    Donnie Darko

    I dont think its about a person being hurt by another. It's about someone fighting depression

  17. andy grant

    Fast becoming my favourite porcupine tree song

    purpletoe101

    tough choice, but i agree

  18. Benoit Achten

    Sublime!

  19. el tugaball

    I won't shiver in the cold
    I won't let the shadows take their toll
    I won't cover my head in the dark
    And I won't forget you when we part

    Collapse the Light Into Earth

    I won't heal given time
    I won't try to change your mind
    I won't feel better in the cold light of the day
    But I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to stay

    Collapse the Light Into Earth

  20. 433bliss

    I won't shiver in the cold
    I won't let the shadows take their toll
    I won't cover my head in the dark
    And I won't forget you when we part
    Collapse the light into earth
    I won't heal given timeI won't try to change your mindI won't feel better in the cold light of dayBut I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to stay
    Collapse the light into earth

  21. CeruleanSpider

    This was the favourite Porcupine Tree song of long time friend of mine, she passed in april. This song's always gonna make me cry now.

    tinfoilhatter

    damn, son...i never even knew about this song...so this was here all along, thru all those long years- long live the '90's and happy new year huh?

  22. Vitoko skullerx

    This song is like a end of the world like Evangelion for me 😞

  23. jousif21

    This is the same function as classical music

  24. Skadewdle

    One of the most simply genuine and human tracks i've ever heard, absolutely beautiful. These guys have fucking heart.

  25. Juliesunshine 333

    I have goose bumps on my goose bumps! Simply a heavenly song!

  26. teknichol _

    2015 di quello potente

  27. sanjoy bose

    Nobody can sing like this for the wretched winter...

  28. Janssen Reyes

    Depression brought me here...

  29. Dan Hicks

    This is the song that I use to turn people on to Porcupine Tree, after other songs have not done the trick.

    Adam Godfrey

    I use Shesmovedon for that trick. Works every time. This is one helluva song too though, of course

    Antoine Grand

    I tried with "what happens now" because it's the first I listenned and by far my favorite. Maybe it was a little bit ambitious

  30. Romina Garay

    esta cancion me hace pensar en muerte

  31. Ricardo Gavilanes

    crep que es una de las mejores canciones que he escuchado

  32. Vatsal patel

    I listen to this when I inappropriately think about my dog

  33. Deliah Jamison

    Beautiful

  34. Alex Oliver

    Brilliant

  35. Kimmo Laine

    Beautiful.

  36. windh

    This is the saddest song I know.

    TheAnimystro

    Or heart attack in a lay by, on this very album!!

    Mr. Stevenson

    this is sadder than drive home

    National Federation of the Blind of Florida

    I would agree, but I realize that is a matter of opinion.

    Rezz Atrana

    I do not know about sadder. But of all the PT and SW songs, (and I know them all), for some reason this one makes me feel the most lost and depressed.

    Slevin

    Rezz Atrana Because it’s a concept album that delved into the mind of an incredibly disturbed human being.

  37. Andrea Simonetto

    Funny how some people, with only four chords and a minimal technique, can write an absolute masterpiece. I wish I just could...

    Darren The Tuber

    He's one of the most nuanced songwriters in prog, by a very very long margin, he is one of the only songwriters in the genre that focuses on the small musical and lyrical nuances to give even his longest songs a very intiment charachter to them

    Subigya Bikram Thapa

    What"s more amazing is how a person can compose each and every song with ultimate perfection. Steven Wilson is God

    Antoine Grand

    It make me Feel so Low

    BarryEssex

    iT'S 5 CHORDS

    Andres Felipe Vega

    It's five chords... But yeah, you are fucking right, Steven Wilson is a genius

  38. AT Hiker

    We live this life hoping and trying to find something that is real and tangible. Music sometimes forms itself into handholds. Something abstract yet so real. It lifts us up. It carries us away momentarily to a place where the air is full of hope and truth.

    dhwani chugh

    +S.A. Hogan Pretentious guy has his way with words though :)

    S.A. Hogan

    @dhwani chugh Gosh, do you REALLY think so? Pretty silly guy if you ask me. And to think he's a novelist and poet...

    dhwani chugh

    No. That was a sarcastic comment.

    S.A. Hogan

    @dhwani chugh Sarcasm meets sarcasm---yes!

    43Aquaman

    Nice theft there, Hiker. Like Poul Anderson much?

  39. vanhaver5150

    Brilliant!

  40. Ayur Bhatta

    Amazing!!

    Subigya Bikram Thapa

    Pureee goosebumps

  41. ANDRE FINNIGAN

    HAUNTING

  42. Jesse Singer
