I shall stay at the Red Red Rose
I shall pull the curtain closed
There's a satin comforter
Strange flowers
Strangers have made love there
The light o'er the mirror
The crease of folded paper
I shall lay down upon the sheets and not think

Just sleep
"This is no Holocaust
You sow what you reap"
Just sleep

I shall wake at the light of day
(May the Earth open where I lay)
Convince myself this is no mistake
(A trial by fire is a better way)
Must be there by 9
(Will He forgive a suicide?)
Meet the buyers' needs, manager's greed
(I never wait in line!)
Draw your number and wait in line
(I never wait in line, I never wait in line, I never wait in line)
I shall unfold the clothes
(The lion tears the lamb to shreds because he can, he knows)
I shall keep the curtains closed (And when the curtain falls, our bleeding hearts will finally show)
Then I shall try for a better smile
(Remember) One hand shakes while the other feels for Life
For Life
The feeling of something inside, hidden and disguised
For Life
Somewhere behind suit and tie
Hidden, disguised
