Late Lament is the last voice of The Days of Future Passed, released in 1967 by The Moody Blues.
Immediately following the fade out of Nights in White Satin it is often included as an essential part of the whole when heard on any good FM station...
Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy is spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one;
Lonely man cries for love and has none;
New mother picks up and suckles her son;
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight,
Red is grey and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion.
Penned by Graeme Edge
Voiced by Mike Pinder
