Lyrics

When you wake it’s barely dawn
Oh, what a beautiful morning it could be
Scratch yourself and spring to life
Try not to stir the trouble and strife

To shave or not to shave
Spin the wheel and learn your fate
And as it slows, your mind goes

It could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and be strong enough to run

Step by step, he slowly turns
One by one he eyes them each in turn
Look at my creation
The monster looms above your head he reaches down and…

Brush it aside, it’s only dust
Nothing it broken, you’ll just have to trust yourself
First one foot and then the other
Look at him sisters, look at him brothers

As the curtain slowly falls
And he rides into the sunset
A final word from our sponsors
Don’t look back, don’t look down

It could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and try to have some fun
Seasons come and seasons go
What we reap we shall sow

It could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and let in the sun
Lovers come and lovers go
What we reap we shall sow
