WHEN ANOTHER MIDNIGHT
SARAH SLEAN, DAY ONE


When another midnight comes to rest
On the cheek of our sleeplessness
All the crusaders will wake and dress
Pull their flags from their pillowcases

You could hear all of Eden hold its breath
On this the anniversary of wonderís death
Unholy occasion what a terrible mess
Oh it's time for a new dress

How to live a noble life
In this the age of insanity
When every prophet's face is turning white
Itís the look, the look of "Can it be?"

Itís shock, itís horror, itís despair!
Itís Socrates weeping in a wheelchair
Teacher drooling, unaware
"Where are my students where, oh where?"

Poet to poet, nun to nun
Iíve met a distance that I have to run
No matter what madness must come undone
Iím throwing down a smoking gun

All the commuters will hear our words
And hide in garages like frightened birds but
You canít stop the moaning of the Earth
And the midnight crackling of my nerves!

Come out, come out!
Angels of love
It's just the sound of another midnight falling
Come out come out!
It's not the end of the world
It's just the sound of another midnight falling
Come out come out! The time is now!
