Slumberland

lyrics

You fall again, see you cry
Wait for relief in the daylight and go
up from the ground all the stars are too high
and all your fears of the world are now streamlined
in the desolate glow of the streetlights outside

Don’t fall asleep alone in this
You shouldn’t have to awaken inside
You know you’re still a dream, don’t you, sunshine?

In this wind pushed aside
you lose the smile that you swear by and now
you count again on me to be there in time
Put all your trust in the weather
I’m sure that you can do better

But if you awaken scared and shaken
undressed before the witchhunt roll call
when McCarthy brings his gavel down
with “Are you now or have you ever?”
bend but don’t fall for that ‘some things are sacred’ talk
It’s all to do with ability and I was born to commit that heresy

And though your fears of the world might be realized
you can bet that they don’t know that you are mine, so try

Don’t fall asleep alone in this
You shouldn’t have to awaken inside
You know you’re still a dream, don’t you, sunshine?
