The Sandman Will Keep You Awake - The Loop


By: Debbie Roche (June 1996)

If you work the night shift, please lend me an ear;
my kind's all around you; we're really quite near;

Do you know someone, you never see during the day?
Outside in the sun, at work or play?

Does he never seem to eat or drink at any time?
When he does, it's from a bottle, he claims is red wine?

From social functions and gatherings, does he shy away?
Is his skin, kinda pale, even gray?

Family and relatives, does he claim he has none?
A wife, lover, girlfriend, ever seen him with one?

If any of this is true, ask questions, inquire?
Could your friend, boss, co-worker, partner, be a vampire?
