A silent sleeping vampire, arisen from its grave
As I lie still and quiet in the dark
The only sign of breathing, a flicker on my skin
The only sign of life, my beathing heart
What does it take to open my eyes?
What does it take to register surprise?
What does it take to feel joy?
What does it take to feel pain?
Floors creak but doors are still
I've read all the books about being ill
I know the truth and truth knows I'm right
One day you'll fear me in the night

A drowning man sees daylight
Coming up for air…
I've been working hard for this
All my life and I like it this way

I know they're staking out my house
That's why I'm quiet like a mouse
I don't know love but I know what's right
I feel my sickness every night
My tv fills my world with light
24 hours of second sight
I talk to God on my station
He gives me secret information

A drowning man sees daylight
Coming up for air…
I've been working hard for this
All my life and I like it this way

Mother, suffocate me
Mother, suffocate me
There's no way out of here
It's tearing me apart
There's no way out of here
There's no way out of here
Mother, suffocate me
There's no way out of here
There's no way out of here
No-no-no way out of here

    General CommentNo comments on this song? This is one of my favourites of Bruce's solo stuff. I assume it's about him being a vampire, no? Otherwise, I'm completely clueless.

    Musically, lyrically, vocally, this song punches you in the face. Just a cool song.(:
