about

'And So To Sleep' is a slow-burning, richly-textured song exploring the alternating states of anguish and self-soothing following a painful loss:

"The pull of your empty sorrow, it was vacuous, it was gravity to me,
The chasm between our bodies, it was ravenous, ..majesty"

lyrics

And So To Sleep

Sleep..

He looked at me, 'am I going down?'
He said to me, 'am I going down?'
He clung to me, 'am I going down?'

Can I go where you are, where are you?

Sleep..

He looked at me, 'am I going down?'
He said to me, 'am I going down?'
He clung to me, 'am I going down?'

You don't know me at all, you don't..

The pull of your empty sorrow, it was vacuous, it was gravity to me,
The chasm between our bodies, it was ravenous, it was majesty,
The pull of your empty sorrow, it was black, it was vast, it was black,
It was a black chasm between our bodies, it was cavernous, majesty,
The pull of your empty sorrow, vacuous.
