Gate Fever

from Gate Fever by Paddy Nash



Can’t take it with you
Said the poet to the priest
We were playing Hold ‘Em
In the belly of the beast
Then the teacher struck the cue ball
And it made the perfect sound
Then everybody stopped
As the shadows filled the ground

Tonight I lay thinking
Of the choices that I made
And how my worst ten minutes
Put me where I am today
And I know it won’t be long now
‘til I embrace the great unknown
Is anybody out there is anybody home

I can feel that old gate fever
Coming on

I am not alone here
There’s a stranger in my room
He’s a nameless cliché
A bully and a buffoon
But when he thinks I’m sleeping
When the silence steals the night
I can hear him praying
And crying like a child

I can feel that old gate fever
Coming on

The last time I saw her
Her head bowed in shame
And all I could whisper
Is I am not afraid
But I’m afraid

I can feel that old gate fever
Coming on
Come on
