Undress The Dead

It’s 2 o’clock in the morning and the warning sign is flashing
It’s calling my number, jamming up the telephone lines
passing on some dangerous secret messages to the depths of the unknown

Why’d you have to break it off? The pillows warm the blankets hot
It’s a good thing I guess
Drape the covers, undress the dead
Undress the dead

It’s 5 o’clock in the morning and the skies run high yellow red and blue
I check myself in the mirror and my eyes run dry from the dreams of the era
I’m walking on water collapsing to the beat of the drops

Why’d you have to break it off? The pillows warm the blankets hot
It’s a good thing I guess
Drape the covers, undress the dead
Pull the headlights, stop your alarms
There’s no need to worry, you’re up then you’re gone

So fasten your seatbelts
Cabin’s prepared for takeoff

It’s 8 o’clock in the morning
And I can’t see a thing except flashing numbers
And blurred colors
Oh how my eyes decieve me
Asking mysterious questions to the women of my dreams

Why’d you have to break it off? The pillows warm the blankets hot
It’s a good thing I guess
Drape the covers, undress the dead
Pull the headlights, stop your alarms
There’s no need to worry, you’re up then you’re gone
Pull the covers, undress the dead
Pull the seatbacks, stop your alarms
There’s no need to worry you’re up then you’re gone
