8. Peter Murphy "Indigo Eyes"
Fire burning in a hill
The lines are rocky rough
Red angles wait to pick remains
The cindered shoulder
Of confused men
Separate from their awe
With grey desire
He looks out mad
His soft grey indigo eyes
Indigo eyes ...

His heaven is uncovered not
A black tree blocks his way
His way is skating round a dome
(His way is in dismay)
The playmate sings
Like Orphee in some thunder world
Asking to be bathed in light
To be exemplified

With grey desire he looks out mad
His soft grey indigo eyes

Saw his past
He had dug for trust
With blind infected hands
And wondered as the hurt bit hard
Why the sacred weren't at hand
Only when his ears were deaf
To the angels light burst waves
Only when his ears were deaf
Did life turn from fog to fog
But not evil but estranged
But not evil but estranged

Indigo eyes....
