Sleep Song
(Written By Ken Baker)

Guess we all get those days when it pays not to speak
But to keep out of sight and to stay 'neath my sheets
In the safety of sleep, in the safety of sleep

There's a man in my mirror face of death morning white
Memories of last night hanging over his head
I was reaching too tall, I was riding to fall
But I climb to my feet for my challenge to greet
Though tonight we will meet in the safety of sleep

But it's alright, it's okay, only morning anyway
It's alright, it's okay, just another part to play

Fishes float in the breeze I guess to put you at ease
But he's already here and I bet he's got plans
For the drill in his hand for the drill in my mouth
Staring into the nose of a white dental man
Hanging onto his seat like a leach or sea clam
But he carries on Lord like he's fixing a Ford
Come on inject my blood with your merciful drug
So my mind may retreat to the safety of sleep

But it's alright, it's okay, only morning anyway
It's alright, it's okay, just another part to play

Guess we all get those days when it pays not to speak
But to keep out of sight and to stay 'neath my sheets
In the safety of sleep, in the safety of sleep

There's a man in my mirror face of death morning white
Memories of last night hanging over his head
I was reaching too tall, I was riding to fall
But I climb to my feet for my challenge to greet
Though tonight we will meet in the safety of sleep

But it's alright, it's okay, only morning anyway
It's alright, it's okay, just another part to play
