​The Day Before It Happened

This song is by The Legendary Pink Dots and appears on the album All The King's Men (2002).

The day before it happened,
Nothing mattered.
Well, at least that's what you said...

I tried to catch your words
But managed ten percent...

I ??? against the wall
Close my eyes...
I try a little less.
You let me use my intuition,
You would not let me rest...

The day before
The day before it happened,
Missiles flattened this poor village
By mistake...
They pulled a baby from the flakes...

Undamaged, smiling, wide awake...
A general cried;
Admitted: "Oh the lord, he moves in such mysterious ways."

They docked his pay and shipped him to Antartica...
Now wasn't that a shame?

The day before it happens,
We shall all be unprepared...
Heard him shouting from the pulpit,
Saw it splattered on the stairs...

Wondered if the time was right
To fix my teeth...
Dye my hair...

Next year...

Maybe next year...

Oh, the day it should have happened,
Nothing happened.

Next year.

Next year.
