I can feel time just slipping away Same four walls, day after day Government worker, Department of Thing Across the desks, the telephones ring... Seven days to save the world... Christie and Meltzer were right what they said The Floodgates are open so get out of bed Many are chosen, many are called To bring the clash between the rulers and ruled Six days to save the world... One, two, three four, knock at the door Five, six, seven, eight, break down the gate Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, do it yourself Four, six, eight, ten, do it again Four days to save the world... Fire in the sky, slowing of the clock Get a funny feeling that it's all gonna stop It's all got surreal, it's the strangest day Bang on the head and it's all been a dream, eh? Three days to save the world... I can see the future and it's coming this way No more walls day after day Government worker, Department of Thing Across the desks, the telephones ring... One day to save the world... Copyright: Michael Anthony Sinclair 2014

I don’t believe in the story you’re telling It’s inconsistent, I smell a red herring It’s all designed to make me loose bearing Of the facts when it comes to the hearing What did you do with the body? How did you cover the scent? I will trace all your footsteps So I can pay the rent, pay the rent Story gets weirder as you go deeper Someone around is this secret’s keeper Some say I’m heading for a big sleep, yeah But I say fine ’cos I don’t fear this reaper What did you do with the body? How did you cover the scent? I will trace all your footsteps So I can pay the rent, pay the rent And when we come to the end of the story Alibi of the girl's proved to be phony Several got rained on for her love of glory I am a P.I.* but that’s just my story 'Cos I know what you did with the body I know how you covered the scent 'Cos I traced all your footsteps And now I don’t need the rent, it’s heaven sent *Private Investigator Copyright: Michael Anthony Sinclair 1981
