Citizen Doe Lullaby

CandlePattern_2493
Refrain:
Sleep, sleep citizen Doe,
Sleep your life away.
Sleep, sleep citizen Doe,
tomorrow’s yet a dream away.

Tomorrow you’ll read the official news,
watch in the evening repeated as truths
absorbing it daily to form your views.
But now you must sleep citizen Doe
You have no real life to lose.

(Refrain)
Tomorrow you’ll work but won’t have fun
take it in stride like the haze-dimmed sun
with a smile as hard as a waiting gun.
But now you must sleep citizen Doe
You have nowhere to run.

(Refrain)
Tomorrow you’ll do what you always do
pretend all colors don’t look like blue
growing ever closer to you know who.
But now you must sleep citizen Doe
You have not the slightest clue.
