When I awoke
I was driving in my car
- Holy Joe!
Stringless marionettes falling through the snow
Poppies strewn and chandeliers
Splintered ice on wasted ears
- All black and blue!
The world was stuck to my head with glue
And it came to pass and it was through
I thought of this and I thought of you
Then blinked and saw the world I knew
...God, look at what it's come to
Flashing red space
A drip-feed pain system across my face
That torch - Too bright!
Did I have too much to dream last night?
A buzzing crowd
They stared at me
And drowning lost in the dark alr between
Scratched radio words
Everyone really sure I wasn't ftom the House of Lords
I must look awful
I must look
I did behold
But was sure I had not hurt a soul -
- I have not hurt a soul!
Could it be? (- Oh dear, oh no)
I didn't want this control
Is it Time to go?
Time to lose control
No angel over me
Hands clasped to pray
(But I imagined one there anyway)
And she smiled at me
And from this oscillating soul, she cut me free
I looked to my past but it was too far to see
Tumed to my future, it was all around me
If it's evident
I'm not immune
With arms like snakes, I'll flee this room
Find a place to rest
Then try to walk on other legs
If I return to Go - will I pass the test?
Her wistful eyes said - time to rest
Those guardian eyes - it's time to rest
Yes - time to rest
