sleep has no property lyrics – danielle dax

night came uninvited
pierced through with stars
its dream where
separate things
hanging above
inside things hum
and whir
no calm at all
sleep has no property
i heard him call
night came uninvited
brutal unloved

the moon crept uninvited
over my sill.
to mock me with
its learning
unsavoury grin.
inside i’d sweat
and strain.
no calm at all
sleep has no property
as i recall
the moon came uninvited
sallow and grin.

bad miss “m”
i was a-gone
when you came
sneaking’ around
in a holocaust-
haze your lunacy
seems calm
everyday you’re
a-snitching’
every night i’m
a-b*tching’:
all that’s good for
a nation
handed out in
bitter lessons-
ooh!

bad miss “m”
bad miss “m”
woooh…

workin’
workin’
workin’
the whole day
through
workin’
workin’
workin’
the whole day
through

workin’
workin’
workin’
the whole day
through

we’ll all have a
party when you
are gone
desecrate your
grave and sing
this song
everyday you’re
demeaning
every night i’m
a-scheming
all that fits
a sick story
handed out with
willfull glory-
ooh!

bad miss “m”
bad miss “m”
woooh…
