The Night Watch Man


I am the Night Watch Man


I call for you at eleven


You always make me wait.


The night has work to do


And I watch over you.


It's the time


For your liver wheels to grind.


Some nights I see


You wake at three


Made afraid


By mind chasing poison.


At four the poison


Takes the body of some


And they will not


See the day.


I drag out yesterday


And pull in tomorrow.


For night is too strong


Keep away, be quiet, don't fight


By morning I am gone.
