ANDY PARTRIDGE lyrics - Steel Bed

"Steel Bed"

When I sleep me
Body dissolves.
The bed looks empty.
But the steel frame
Is an accumulator.
My soul-currents
Coil in the springs.
Whoosh -

Through the floor
Veins of ore
Conduct me down
Through chthonic strata,
To Hell.

Stumbling all night
Over bones of the dead.

I'm a fume
Without a mouth
To call her name.
