Alarm




I don't want to sleep - atomic clock alarming me
thought emergency - I feel a sense of urgency
awakening - Awaken me!

These are just the words of another sleeping hand
This is not the arm with a hammer in its hand
No one else can sleep or shit or eat it for you
No one else can think or dream it for you
so urgently - Awake and See!

I can hear you snoring -I can hear you crawling
I can hear you calling - I can hear you slowly
Awakening! Awake and see

Alarm! Alarm! Alarm!



Originally released on the "HE-HO" album (1984)
re-released on the CD re-issue compilation "Songs of Reverie and Ruin" (1996)
