Down in the ground where the dead men go.
I know there's a place way down below.
Down in the valley is where everyone goes.
I have a place there, sometimes I like to go.
Come as you are, take a little rest with me.
Into the darkness we go, time out of mind.
You are one with the dust now.
A fragment of what you and I left behind.
Down, down, down, into the darkness.
Gentle you must go, the beautiful, and tender.
I heard the owl call my name.
Just before the darkness came.
He dropped his eyes with the bright sunshine.
And the medications didn't help any, as he read
between the lines.
Only yesterday you came to me, to release me
From this dark, damp place, I seen it in your eyes.
Only then I will fly off into the light !
