somewhere between waking and sleeping lyrics – air

somewhere between waking and sleeping

without blindness, there is no sight
you’d see further if you’d only close your eyes
in unconsciousness i can find peace
inside prison walls i can find release
there is a place that i have seen

somewhere between waking and sleeping
down at the water’s edge
somebody waits for me
is it too late for me
it’s never too late, he says

[left channel]
without blindness, there is no sight
you’d see further if you’d close your eyes
unblock the failure

[right channel]
without blindness, there is failure
people gather by the river
they were talking

there is a place that i have seen
somewhere between waking and sleeping
leaning over the side
trailing my fingertips
feeling the water slip
into the quiet night

viewed from the wrong end of a telescope
i see myself, so far below
still and silent, rest in peace
the thread unravels
merciful release

there is a place that i have seen
somewhere between waking and sleeping
now i can almost see
figures upon the sh*r*
he’s gathering in the oars
where are you taking me
