Can't You Hear It Calling?
Lead vocal: Jeff Johnson

But the night was as troublesome to him as the day; wherefore instead of sleeping, he spent it in sighs and tears. – From The Pilgrim's Progress - In the Similitude of a Dream by John Bunyan

Outside my window some cat is screaming in the night,
It sounds so human like someone deep in agony,
Could it be someone from way off calling into me?

Up from the warm bed I thrust the door into the cold,
And hiss my teeth out - the animal bolts for the filed,
But I still hear someone from way off calling into me.

Can 't you hear it calling?
Can't you hear it calling to me?

Deep from within me I hear that cat scream echoing,
It sounds so human like someone deep in agony,
Could it be someone from way off calling into me?

Back in my warm bed as I am falling into sleep,
I know I'm dreaming, but everything seems genuine,
And there is somone from way off calling into me.

Am I going crazy hearing this voice call to me,
From outside to my inside?
