GENESIS


Domino Lyrics

The grey of evening fills the room
No need to look outside
Oh to see or feel the rain

I reach across to touch her
But I know that she's not there
Rain keeps running down the window pane
Time is running out for me

Can't you see what you are doing to me
Can't you see what you have done
As I try to pass another long and sleepless night
A hundred crazy voices call my name
As I try to pass them by
I can almost believe that she is here
She's in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done
Do you know what you've begun
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

Oh the lonely people, the empty rooms
Pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again

Sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night
Only foreign city sirens can cut through
Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimise the cold
But they can't keep out the chilling sounds
Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming
That she is here with me
She's in the glow of the night

Do you know what you have done
Do you know what you've begun
Do you see we shall never be together again
All of my life

Oh the lonely people, the empty rooms
Pointless violence, silent tombs
Could it be that we shall be together again
Yes, could it be that we shall be together again

In silence and darkness
We held each other near that night
We prayed it would last forever
Forever

Blood on the windows
Millions of ordinary people are there
They gaze at the scenery
They act as if it is perfectly clear
Take a look at the mountains
Take a look at the beautiful river of blood

The liquid surrounds me
I fight to rise from this river of hell
I stare round about me
Children are swimming and playing with boats
Their features are changing
Their bodies dissolve and I am alone
I am alone

Now see what you've gone and done
Now see what you've gone and done

Now you never did see such a terrible thing
As was seen last night on TV
Maybe if we're lucky, they will show it again
Such a terrible thing to see
There's nothing you can do when you're the next in line
You've got to go Domino

Now I'm one with the living and I'm feeling just fine
I know just what I must do
Play the game of happiness and never let on
That it only lives on in a song
No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line
You've got to go Domino

Do you know -
- What you have done
Do you know -
Do you know what you've begun

In silence and darkness
Hold each other near tonight
And pray it will last forever
Forever
Will last forever
Forever

No there's nothing you can do when you're the next in line
You've got to go Domino

Do you know -
- What you have done
Do you know -
Do you know what you've begun
