I don't want to face the day the day, today

Long nights leave me stranded
Black visions, danger signs
No love- I need protection
Feels like I'm on a production line
Daggers of dawn, cold hearted day
Why does if have to be morning?
Cover my head, stayin' in bed
Too late the luckless warning

Outside the screaming city
Red lights, hungry eyes
Sucks like a space invader
The vacuum of its lies
Stealin' my strength, stealin' my time
It's raining in a world of traders

Let me keep on sleeping
Forget that I'm alone
One day of faceless living-
is twenty-four hours too long
I don't want to face the day

Give me the night, it's more forgiving
Hold back the light from my eyes
Please stay invisible darkness
can't see the tears that I cry
I know it's comin', loaded with nothing
Trapped in a tunnel of time

I don't want to face the day
The day, today

    General CommentThis always sounded to me like someone waking up after a coke binge and having to go to work. "Daggers of dawn" and "hold back the light from my eyes" are the reason cokeheads wear sunglasses. "Great White" indeed.

    Ah, the 80s.

    General CommentThe lyric is "...raining in a world of TRAITORS"

    This song is about depression. As years go by and it happens to you, or someone you know, this song takes on a whole new meaning. Great White put this cover tune (originally done by Australian band "The Angels" or "Angel City" as they were known in the U.S.) as part of an EP when they lost their first big record contract. "Stay Alive in '85" was their motto and tour, then. Women, record companies, fans, even fellow band members, it was all pretty depressing for the band at that time.

    Anyway, I love this song and it fits just right for those moments of loneliness, betrayal, despair, and hopelessness that seem like they will last forever. Fortunately, they never do. But the song is great~!
