Sexual/Twist In The Tale | Rising From the Dread

Unexpected Guest / Dresden (single)

(7" Version)

And as the clock strikes thre
e But no afternoon tea
This is morning
All wealth yawning

And you dream… (repeat)

Oblivious to my scheme
Who’ll set the test
For your Unexpected Guest

And as your Unexpected Guest
Your hospitality
Was the best

Oh Englishman
Your castle threatened
Your privacy wrecked
Your wealth lessened

And still he dreams…

A midnight surprise
Only for you eyes
Your Unexpected Guest

Oh but I could have touched your shoulder
If I were bolder…
The stranger in the bedroom
The air would turn colder.


Dresden baby
Where’s the lesson to learn
No source of reference
All your evidence burnt
Ashes – cinders they fall
But no midnight deadlines
For your ball
Because you’re waiting
Oh, still waiting

No witness left
The walls now deaf
No witness left
To testify
Who’ll testify?
Against your war crimes

And they’re waiting
Oh, still waiting
Feeling for the cause
Hands raised please
The lemmings fall
To take the call
To sleep with ease

Stranger in danger
Calls aid to his side
He calls for a good Samaritan
A protection of pride

The war, the spoils
From cold turns to boil
And we’re waiting
Oh still waiting.

The epitaph
The charred terrain
The board wiped clean
To try and start,
They’ll start again
Playing your war games

And we’re waiting
Oh still waiting
They’re feeling
For the cause
Hands raised please
The lemmings fall
To take the call
So sleep with ease
1980 Germany
1980 Germany
Time moves on
Predictions proved
Wrong – again
1980 Germany
And I’m still waiting.
