STOP THE NIGHT,THE NIGHT
MY THOUGHTS GET LOUDER AFTER DARK,
OOH THE LIES,
THE CRAZIES TELL ME THIS MUCH,
AHAA!!

IT'S A SIMPLE ENOUGH TASK BOYS,
TO FIND A LIVING MIRACLE,
BUT THE LIVING AIN'T EASY,
I NEED A SHOT OF MEDICINE.

START THE DAY,THE DAY
MY HEAD DENIES I'M BREATHING,
IT LIKES TO SAY,
AM I HERE OR LEAVING ME?

THERE'S A WANT I ASK ALL THE TIME,
POSSESSION OF MY RIGHT MIND,
YOU'RE NOT DEAF BUT I STILL HAVE TO SHOUT,
WATCH OUT THERE'S LOTS A THEIVES ABOUT!

ALONG ALONG THE WAY,
I STAND BESIDE MYSELF,
AND LOOK AT ALL MY WORLD,
NO NEED TO TELL ME.

I SEE DEAD MEN PLAYING,
I HEAR CRIES FROM MANY,
I HEAR TEARS AND THEN SOME,
I HEAR HOPE I'M HOPING.

I'M CAUGHT WITH ALL THE SHUTTERS DOWN,
WHO'S LOOKING THROUGH MY WINDOW?
I HAD TO CLOSE THE SADDEST EYES.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE A WINNER,
YOU'VE GOT TO BE COOL,
YOU'VE GOT TO BE A WINNER,
YOU'VE GOT TO BE COOL,

I SEE ME INSIDE YOU,
I HEAR FEAR AND THEN SOME,
I SEE CHILDREN PLAYING,
I SEE HOPE I'M HOPING,

FAR AWAY--WAY,
I HEAR A MEMORY CALLING ME,
I'D LIKE TO STAY,
BUT MY OBSESSION WANTS TO PLAY.
