The Monochrome Set

The Monochrome Set are an English post-punk band originally formed in 1978 from the remnants of a college group called The B-Sides (whose members had included Stuart Goddard, later known as Adam Ant). The band is notable for its witty lyrics, the laconic delivery of lead singer Bid, and the idiosyncratically retrogressive playing style of original lead guitarist Lester Square.[citation needed] more »

Sleep is full of ecstasies
Ever out of reach to me, my fingers reach and say
Won't you stay one minute more
Tell me what your name is and what are we here for

Dreams cast me in hazy scenes
Where I have no words to say, and life unfolds around me
Won't you lay with me a year
Show me what your face is, I cannot see from here

Darkly sly is purity
Innocently lying to me, weaving its spell
Always faithless in the end
Ungentle friend, sending me to hell
