"Tomorrow's Dream" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
A cage of my own
This cage is my home
And also alone am I
From above all around
Helpless to the sound
Of my brother's cry

Just leave us alone
We don't want to moan
Only if you make us
Smashed on the lock
Until I've had to drop
Tried to get my message through

Off goes another with another's brother
My arms try to bend across to a friend

You can't burn me with your laser beams
It's pointing at you and tomorrow's dream
You'll burn my body quietly set free
And I'll cry for you as I sway from my tree

I'd give you my brain
Nothing you would gain
It's misery seeps from you
When leaving my cage
I am in a rage
Because I know what you're up to

When you walk away remember next day
Not a second I've slept awake I'll have kept
When I reappear I'll look on in fear
My hands could kill but they never will

You can't burn me with your laser beams
It's pointing at you and tomorrow's dream
You'll burn my body quietly set free
And I'll cry for you as I sway from my tree

    General CommentIt's a song about a monkey in an animal testing laboratory. One of Madness' most dark and moving songs, I think.
