By day give thanks, by night beware
Half the world in sweetness, the other in fear

When the darkness takes you, with her hand across your face
Don’t give in too quickly, find the things she’s erased

Find the line, find the shape through the grain
Find the outline and things will tell you their name

The table, the guitar, the empty glass
All will blend together when the daylight has passed

Find the line, find the shape through the grain
Find the outline and things will tell you their name

Now I watch you falling into sleep
Watch your fist uncurl against the sheet
Watch your lips fall open and your eyes dim
In blind faith

I would shelter you
And keep you in light
But I can only teach you
Night vision
Night vision
Night vision
