lyrics

WAKE UP JOHN

Locked in a dream I found
I test my mind’s ability
At sleeping through the sound
Of engines running near to me
Won’t turn down for you

And on the ocean bed
This tireless whale that waits for war
With men inside its head
There from the day they closed the door
Won’t turn round for you

She waits and when she sees you
She is filled with joy
She waits and when she sees you
She is scared to tell you

And just because you sleep
Wake up John
You said yourself that there’s
No point carrying on
If you reveal
They’ll send you back where you
Where you came from

Great iron bridges lead us over
Places once impossible
Great stony ridges that we conquer
Wild old land so crossable
Take us under now you take us under

She waits and when she sees you
She is filled with joy
She waits and when she sees you
She is scared to tell you

And just because you sleep
Wake up John
You said yourself that there’s
no point carrying on
If you reveal
They’ll send you back where you
Where you came from

We wait for messages
To tell us that they’re alright
They wait for radios
To tell them that we’re all ok
And if there’s nothing
I’d be last of all to know
Why would you share the news with me?
Why would you let me know?

And just because you sleep
Wake up John
You said yourself that there’s
No point carrying on
If you reveal
They’ll send you back where you
Where you came from

And just because you dream
Wake up John
You said yourself that there’s
No point carrying on
If you reveal
They’ll send you back where you
Where you came from
