Small Fish (Porcupine Tree)

The first thing that I saw as, the fisherman smiled at me Were empty people dressed in grey, floating out to sea The rain lashed down in darkness A lizard blinked an eye And time stopped in the silence The small fish gave a cry The next thing that I saw as, things were fading fast Were dreams of children's laughter, smouldering to dust The rain lashed down in darkness A lizard blinked an eye And time stopped in the silence The small fish gave a cry The last thing that I saw as, my life passed by Were fields of empty people, laying down to die The rain lashed down in darkness A lizard blinked an eye And time stopped in the silence To watch the burning sky.
