lyrics

the darkness is my castle,and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy,cicada, oh happy cicada
on a bed of earth you die, drunk with light,and for seventeen years i wondered by and by,the darkness is my castle
and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy,compassion used to be my plaything,but when did i get so serious?,when did I lose perspective,just tell me why, the joke is always on the joker, and now a tear falls from his eye
the punch line can’t always be predicted, but it cannot be denied, the joke is always on the joker, and now a tear falls from his eye, the punch line can’t always be predicted,and i hear your tired sigh, the light is like a spider, it crawls over the edges of the snow, it crawls under your eyelids, and spreads its webs there, its two webs the webs of your eyes are fastened, to the flesh and bones of you, as to rafters or grass, there are filaments of your eyes,on the surface of the water,and in the edges of the snow, the joke is always on the joker, the punch line can’t always be predicted the darkness is my castle, and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy. let my heart be a cicada
over heavenly fields,let it die singing slow, wounded by the blue sky, and, as it fades,let this woman i foresee
scatter it through the dust with her hands, cicada, oh happy cicada! for you are wounded by invisible swords from the blue
