Robert Calvert – Day Of The Quake lyrics

It starts out with the sirens ringing loud in your ears
And then you get to feeling unaccountable fears
You know that somethings coming but you just don’t know what
The back of your neck is getting prickly and hot
And everything is shaking and vibrating away
It all looks like a vision out of William Blake
The earth is awake its the day of the quake
Cars are hurled around just like a handful of toys
And buildings are collapsing in the chaos and noise
Pavements are all furrowed like they’re starting to frown
There’s panic in the street all the walls coming down
Hungry mouths are opening trying to swallow the world
C’mon everybody now and lets do the shake
The earth is awake its the day of the quake
I’d tried to telephone but all the lines had gone dead
I jumped into my car but there was no road ahead
All there was was craters, great fissures and crags
And roving responders trying to stiff out the flags
They set up their cameras and their boom microphones
They started asking questions I said “Give me a break!”
The earth is awake its the day of the quake
