Darkness (11/11)

This song is by Van der Graaf Generator and appears on the album The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other (1970).

Day dawns dark, it now numbers infinity
Life crawls from the past
Watching in wonder, I trace its patterns in me

Tomorrow's tomorrow is birth again
Boats burn the bridge in the fens
The time of the past returns to my life
And uses it

Don't blame me for the letters that may form in the sand
Don't look in my eyes, you may see all the numbers
That stretch in my sky and colour my hand

Don't say that I'm wrong in imagining
That the voice of my life cannot sing
Fate enters and talks in old words
They amuse it

Hands shine darkly and white, only in dark they appear
Bless the baby born today
(Wicked little Scorpio, doomed to die a thousand times before he lives)
Flying in pitch, flying on fear

They shine in my eyes and touch my face
Where I have seen them placed before
Don't blame me, please, for the fate that falls
I did not choose it
I did not choose it
I did not
No, no I did not
I truly did not choose it
