The Visitors (Crackin' Up)

hear the door-bell ring
and suddenly
the panic takes me
the sound so ominously
tearing through the silence
I cannot move Iím standing
numb and frozen
among the things I love so dearly
the books, the paintings
and the furniture
help me

The signalís sounding once again
and someone tries the doorknob
none of my friends would be
so stupidly impatient
and they donít dare to come here
anymore now
but how I loved our secret meetings
we talked and talked
in quiet voices
smiling

Now I hear them moving
muffled noises coming
through the door
I feel Iím
crackiní up
voices growing louder
irritation building
and Iím close to fainting
crackiní up
they must know by now
Iím in here trembling
in a terror evergrowing
crackiní up
my whole world is falling
going crazy
there is no escaping now
Iím crackiní up

These walls have witnessed
all the anguish of humiliation
and seen the hope of freedom
glow in shining faces
and now theyíve come to take me
come to break me
and yet it isnít unexpected
I have been waiting
for these visitors
help me

Now I hear them moving
muffled noises coming
through the door
I feel Iím
crackiní up
voices growing louder
irritation building
and Iím close to fainting
crackiní up
they must know by now
Iím in here trembling
in a terror evergrowing
crackiní up
my whole world is falling
going crazy
there is no escaping now
Iím crackiní up
