Langour rises reaching
To turn off the alarm
And there's never so much seething
That it can't be disarmed
You just

Stop it up,
Pass it on
Shove it to shelf it,
To leave it off and
Turnover

Lounging against your weapons,
Until your muscles find lock
In the ease of that position
A residue of tremor passes
As some cherie amour suggests
That maybe it was time to smash things up
But just

Stop it up
Pass it on
Shove it to shelf it
To leave it on and
Turnover

Stop, Turnover
Stop, Turnover

Stop it up,
Pass it on
Shove it to shelf it
To leave it on and
Turnover

To just
Stop it up
Pass it on
Shove it to shelf it
To leave it on and
Turnover

I'm rolling
I'm only
I'm only sleeping

    General Comment"Turnover" is a reference to people 'turning off the alarm' that's alerting them to the problems in the world and then 'turning over' and going back to sleep.

    General Commentit's a richer comment on apathy and its scope broader than just social problems.
    can someone tell me who "cherie amour" is? other than someone stevie wonder sings about?
