about

Another of the tracks from the album sessions that the band loved but didn't quite finish in time. Originally, Mike had the idea to write a dark lullaby in a minor key, but this one grew into something more radical, epic and dare we say (whisper it) flamenco-prog.

lyrics

Fear of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!)

Every night when I go to my bed
Sinister thoughts creep into my head
What are those shadows behind the door
What are those noises under the floor
I reach for the light
I shiver with fright
Is this fear of the dark?
Or is somebody there?

I find it hard inside my head
To face the darkness inside my bed
You’ll find it hard inside my bed
Embrace the darkness inside my head
And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me
Oh! Polyanna, sets my spirits free

So she comes kissing me on my head
Slithering softly into my bed
Banishing shadows behind the door
Kicking the blankets onto the floor
She blows out the light
She lights up the night
No more fear of the dark
Not with her body there
Her body’s there……
I find it hard inside my head
To face the darkness inside my bed
You’ll find it hard inside your head
Embrace the darkness inside your bed
And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me
Oh! Polyanna, set her spirit free

Is it fear of the dark?
Or is somebody there?
