Lyrics: LONG DARK NIGHTS Can’t seem to sleep at night Cocks crow of homicide Why can’t I think straight let alone decide? Plague and desperate greed Torture and mental diseases The power-brokers seem to do as they please Fear, O fear – is it clear? Yes, it’s clear The play will be the thing to catch the conscience of the king – Murder! Bulala, bulala, bulala! (Kill! Kill! Kill) Bulala, bulala! Can’t seem to play my part Gone and lost my appetite Could it be the blood of wars they don’t televise? Images and candied masks Circles of lies and fawning deceit The way of the bureaucrat and the secret police Fear, O fear – is it clear? Yes, it’s clear What a peasant slave I am not to kill and be damned Coward! ‘To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?’ Can’t seem to clean my sheets Cut the knots and ease my mind How I’d like to be done so I could unwind Show me the skull of a clown Then give me my poisoned wine Isn’t this a terrible waste of a lifetime? Fear, O fear – is it clear? Yes, it’s clear The way is never straight for those who hesitate The path winds on and on for the weak who would be strong For in the sleep of death, dreams aren’t made of breath #audio #Rock #Reggae #Folk #Jazz
