Текст Scott Walker — The War Is Over (Sleepers — Epilogue)

Everything still, everything silent
As after the rain
We lie here listening to night close down
Stare like a child, wait for the signs
To decide once again
Just when they looked here to stay
We’re to leave our world, our air
It really isn’t fair

Outside they sing «The war is over!»
«Raise your blinds, the war is over!»
Tell your deepest dark
Goodbye

A distant waltz turns in the head
Of an old lady’s night
Waiting hands unfold within the dark
Lighting her lamp, seeing Prince Albert
Recalling the sight
They waltz again through the park
Floorboards creak beneath the moon
The room below just sighs

Outside they sing «The war is over!»
«Raise your blinds, the war is over!»
Let me get some sleep
Tonight

Everything still, everything silent
As after the rain
Still we are
After the rain
