  1. Midnight Call

From the recording For Fear of Forgetting

We all have THAT person in our lives. The friend or family member who, when they get drunk, make angry phone calls or send torrents of unwanted messages. This is a rock driven ode to that personality type.

Lyrics

Midnight Call

Beep! Beep! Goes the phone
In the early hours
The sound it startles me and
Makes me cower

The tone is angry
The words are slurred
The logic twisted
The premise absurd

So you’re home all alone
You’re drunk on your phone
Having a go at
Imaginary foes

The flow of alcohol
Erodes self-control
You don’t even know what you mean (when you plead)

I’ve heard it before
You’re feeling ignored
You’re misunderstood by
One and all
So you rant and you rave and
Demand I explain why
Noone returns your midnight call

Buzz! Buzz! Goes the phone
In the middle of the night
You startle me awake
Give me a fright!

A storm of texts and messages roll in
A deluge of bile and accusation

As the drink freely flows
And drowns frontal lobes
Your sense of self grows
And out come the trolls

Damn all our tomorrows
‘Cos you just emote
All you see is your own
Suffering soul

I’ve heard it before
You’re feeling ignored
You’re misunderstood by
One and all
So you rant and you rave and
Demand I explain why
Noone returns your midnight call

On the phone in the morning
A voice sweet-as-pie
Almost as if you are two different guys
You can’ not quite remember how, when or why
But you’ve called to apologise

I’ve heard it before
You’re feeling ignored
You’re misunderstood by
One and all
So you rant and you rave and
Demand I explain why
Noone returns your midnight call

Your midnight call is no fun at all
All you do is just abusive
Your midnight call is no fun at all
No, I won’t be answering your messages

Your midnight call is no fun at all
Can you please stop pestering me?
Your midnight call is no fun at all
No, I won’t be answering your messages
