Alt lyrics for "early lyrics" version-the one that's quite lengthy and languid:
[spoken:Cut]
Break through the...

Now with the lessing light
Changes that may collide
Walked down a river high
Changing the way to lie

Lamp that may never shine
Faces we'll never find
Field with the land aflame
Changing from night to day/today

(?) will break our lives
Touching the waste of night
Lamps that will never shine
Hoping we'll never die

One they ____given a prize/Once they gave him a prize
Hoping is also prized
Drawn to inner sense/innocence ____ stayed
Waiting you'll pine away/Waiting your time away

Break through the dream with me now X3

Report ____ with me now

Will you break through the dream with me-how(?)

Walked through ____ ______ each time
Now I don't know where I lie
Now/How I can see you're left out/ ____ _____
How I wish you were ____ _____/____ ____ ____ here
[Subvocalizations: here, here....]
(Unintelligible)
Walking away(?)
Walking away with ____ me now
(Unintelligible)

------------
Version 2 alt lyrics

Closer in Heaven we rise/he rides
Treading the silent daylight
Chasing a shadow that runs
Closer I'm pulled in to God

Time for a movement to pass/too past/too passed
Time for all mortals ____ ______
Changes to Heaven we find
Changing the way you lie

[Softly: walking away...]

Walking away from the stars
Two worlds and each day live a part/apart
God's wrath draws closer and shines
Calling me over each time

Break over the dream with me X3

(Unintelligible)

Now that it's final/vital we die
Ages that fight we won't find
All those react on the path
Wish you were here with me now
Wish you were here with me now
Here/Hear with me..
Here/Hear with me....
Here/Hear with me....

Was that a recently released tape? Where can I get it? I've been out of the loop.

Revelation du jour: if you're of a mind, have a listen to the live version of Komakino at The Lyceum and dig on the lyrical connections between the discards from the official recorded version of Komakino and the rehearsal versions of In A Lonely Place.
