Paolo
Where have you gone
Have the spirits found you
You were one of their own

Paolo
You could see him
The man in the tall hat
Brown, with a wide brim
Always standing there
Watching by the door
I think you always knew what he was waiting for

Paolo
Understanding my heart was true
With the lenses of contact you could see through
You could tell me what I should do

Paolo
I've seen evil
It's worn me down
And I would have made games if you'd been around
In the darkness where you are now

Paolo
You loved Godard
Black holes and light years
Absintho and cards

Paolo
Fragile but sure
Hot strains of genius you couldn't endure
And when visions burned equations in your mind
You'd drown your reckoning in cigarettes and wine
Oh but...

Paolo
Understanding my heart was true
With the lenses of contact you could see through
You could tell me what I should do

Paolo
I've seen evil
It's worn me down
And I would have made games if you'd been around
In the darkness where you are now

Paolo
Wherever you are
Say a prayer for me
I've been dancing with
Monsters perilously
Some so subtle, only you'd see

Paolo
I've seen evil
It's worn me down
And I would have made games if you'd been around
In the darkness where you are now

In my darkness where you are now
