Porcupine Tree - The Long Silence Lyrics




[Lyrics: Alan Duffy / Music: Steven Wilson]

A systematic killer
Returning from Madrid
Murdered Mozart in his garden
Mussolini ran and hid
He was chosen by his elders
Sitting on the shelf
They passed his heart to Satan
Who showered them with wealth

A Purple Haze crawled on the lawn
Where lonely angels played
And Shakespeare wrote of Vietnam
While a president decayed
Hollow laughter from below
Cracked the sky in two
As Manson dance inside the flames
And the yellow changed to blue

Swinging from a length of rope
Ruth Ellis blew a kiss
Merlin spoke to Norma Jean
And granted her a wish
Mark Chapman stared at fantasy
Bare wires burned his brain
As Sergeant Pepper led the band
Playing through the rain

The third eye on the surface
Opens up my mind
Twin visions in production
This long silence you will find

    A systematic killer
    Returning from Madrid
    Murdered Mozart in his garden
    Mussolini ran and hid
    He was chosen by his elders
    Sitting on the shelf
    They passed his heart to Satan
    Who showered them with wealth
    A Purple Haze crawled on the lawn
    Where lonely angels played
    And Shakespeare wrote of Vietnam
    While a president decayed
    Hollow laughter from below
    Cracked the sky in two
    As Manson dance inside the flames
    And the yellow changed to blue
    Swinging from a length of rope
    Ruth Ellis blew a kiss
    Merlin spoke to Norma Jean
    And granted her a wish
    Mark Chapman stared at fantasy
    Bare wires burned his brain
    As Sergeant Pepper led the band
    Playing through the rain
    The third eye on the surface
    Opens up my mind
    Twin visions in production
    This long silence you will find

  7. albywelch

    the best off of the album for me, i absolutely love it! the choruses and the outro are just pure eargasm, love the layers and the soaring guitar so much, the when it gets the outro and he's singing, it just destroys me in the best possible way

    Good Music Promotion

    +albywelch It is a damn good song indeed.
