I am the running dog,
I’d like to cheat the system,
Just like a welfare queen,
I’d like to bleed the beast.
When I hear the sound of bells across the floor for morning opening
I feel a tingle, from my scalp down to my knees
And the calls roll in
All day until bells sound closing
And I lie, and cheat and steal
But do I sleep at night?
Hey, can you hear that sound at night?
It comes from deep inside
I am the injured dog,
I tried to bleed the beast.
Bailout or will I fail,
At least I know I’ll get what’s mine.
Because hey, can you hear that sound at night?
Can you hear it, tell me
It comes from deep inside.
Hey, can you hear those bells at night?
