The Orchids

This song is by Psychic TV and appears on the album Dreams Less Sweet (1983).

When all the numbers swim together
And all the shadows settle
When doors forced open shut again
A flytrap and a petal

My eyes burn and claws rush to fill them
And in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so clear I realize
That here at last I have my eyes

When all the figures sound retreat
The soft skin starts to shrivel
When dreams made real become less sweet
The orchid and the metal

My sex turns and claws rush to spill them
But in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so pure I can't arise
Without the fear of secret lies

When all the characters full size
And every moon is level
When all the spirits burn in lies
As center grief by steel

My eyes burn and claws rush to fill them
But in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so clear I realize
And now at last I have my eyes
