About a person working the night shift
Pitch black always dissolves into gray,
as lift-off slowly switches to flight.
There's never anything left to say,
or yet more wrongs to be made right.
He always wakes up, end of day,
as darkness swallows up the light...

Nocturnal ! He sleeps during the day
and is burdened by labor at night.
Still he wakes up each end of day
as darkness swallows up the light.

Month end the same again,
He still yearns for his pay,
But always left unpaid...
His hair turns from black to gray,
but still he wakes up each end of day
as darkness slowly swallows up the light.

In his life he never has a say.
People believe he is seldom right;
Still he wakes up each end of day
as darkness slowly swallows up the light...

Darkness lurks in shadows during the day
and light dissolves slowly into the night.
He wakes up each end of day
as darkness swiftly swallows up the light.

In him there is a spirit to fight,
but what would his wife say?
One day he sleeps the whole night !
By loss of his job it pays off the next day.
No longer does he wake up each end of day.
He's hungry, but darkness has regurgitated his light.
