October Project /

Now I Lay Me Down

Out of the silence
Into the blue

You finally remember where you've been
You finally remember who you are
And you remember the light

Out of the spirit,
Into the flesh--
The animal heartbeat in the chest--
The naked desire,
The appetite
But you remember the light


Now I lay me down, now I lay me down
Now I lay me down to dream

Out of the fire
Into the night
Communion of body into smoke
Human and sacred
The sacrifice
You will remember the light

Now I lay me down
Now I lay me down
Now I lay me down to dream
Of light
