Current 93

Current 93 is an eclectic British experimental music group, working since the early 1980s in folk-based musical forms. The band was founded in 1982 by David Tibet (né David Michael Bunting, renamed 'Tibet' by Genesis P-Orridge[citation needed] sometime prior to forming the group). more »

I shall return no more
The sea covers me
To pick gold from the skies
I shall wait beneath the spaces 

I shall return no more
Imperium et nihil
The silence has folded
Inside and out 

And Mary waits in silence
Imperium nihil est
In the gap between
His thought and his word 

Something is finished
And something is born
In the place where words cease
In the moment when 

Actions no longer matter
Oh the sky may darken
The curtain tear
She shall wait 

Silver dust falls from her hair
Waits a span or a time
Sketches of her life swirl
Around her silence silent 

The sounds of her silence
The forms that they take
They cover me still
My fingers twist in pain 

Words are finished
And I come swiftly
And with a vengeance
And Mary waits in silence
