Total Eclipse Of The Sun

This song is by Einstürzende Neubauten and appears on the album Total Eclipse Of The Sun (1999).

The beauty, tender glow extinguished
The sky dull from a breeze
Ghostly the dawn without its red
Uncanny, estranged to our nature
The light like lead
Ripped in the dark
A tiny sickle
As small as cut by a surgical knife

The suns last spark melts away
Not unlike a dying wick
Now stands disc on disc
And crushes my heart

All I really, really, really want to see
Is a total eclipse of the sun

'Ah' says everyone
Just as the birds are silent
With surprise

All I really, really, really want to see
Is a total eclipse of the sun
