From the recording Live at Stargazers Theatre

Lyrics

She’s a damsel in dire distress
She’s a Budweiser stain in a dress
He’s a daring young man on a kind-of trapeze
a hangman’s noose in the sky
hangs another dead savior up high
S’pose it could not have happened to nicer a guy
or so they tell me

Who shall save her now?
Fast as I can, I raise both my hands
She’ll be the stuff that my nightmares are made of
and I won’t wake up
I won't wake up

Hide the knives ‘neath the couch or the bed
Hide the bat ‘case she bash in my head
I can tell by the drink and the stink on her breath
that the shit has buried the fan
Baby rips me one wide as she can
So I grab me a pillow and sleep in the van
comfy cozy

Who shall save me now
and tear at the seams of my stupid dreams?
‘Cause this is the stuff that my nightmares are made of
and I can’t wake up
I can't wake up

Built my life on a landslide
sewed my nose to’er backside
chained my heart to a tickin’ bomb
5,4,3,2…

Please, somebody save me now
I’m lost on the seas of a deadly disease
This is the stuff that my nightmares are made of
and I can’t wake up
I can't wake up
I can't wake up
oh I can't wake up
