one more red nightmare lyrics – king crimson

pan american nightmare
ten thousand feet fun-fair
convinced that i don’t care
it’s safe as houses i swear
i was just sitting musing

the virtues of cruising
when alt*tude dropping
my ears started popping
one more red nightmare

sweat beginning to pour down
my neck as i turn round
i heard fortune shouting
just get off of this outing

a farewell swan song
see you know how turbulence can be
the stewardess made me (*see note*)
one more red nightmare

reality stirred me
my angel had heard me
the prayer had been answered
a reprieve has been granted

the dream was now broken
thought rudely awoken
really safe and sound
asleep on the greyhound
one more red nightmare
