Lyrics
I know where my enemy is sleeping

Words and Music FRANCISCUS HENRI ( Orient Pacific Music)

I saw your picture in a magazine
Who is who and what you do
I saw you walking with you coat and cane
Your cane, your cane , your co-cane

Chorus

Now I know where my enemy is sleeping
Seen the colour of your gun
You who make the children weep
I know where your victims run
They run
They run

Chorus

I heard your prayers of supplication
You read the songs of Solomon
I saw you with your crucifix
You fix, your fix, your daily fix

Chorus

You’re in love with David Hockney
You got his pictures on your wall
You rang him on your satellite mobile
But he refused to take your call
You met him at an exhibition
You whispered to him you were gay
He said he didn’t like you hair cut
And then he walked away
Away
He walked away

I heard you made a brand new CD
They played it on the radio
I heard you play your
Yamaha keyboard
Your board, your board, your Ouije board

Now I know where my enemy is sleeping
Seen the colour of your gun
You who make the children weep
I know where your victims run
They run. They run.

Evocative.
Nicely mysterious and well composed. Keeps you thinking after it stops too, so definitely a success, this one.

Great to be onboard with this one Franc! I think it works well. However Archie the dog who looked down on us while we were recording is a bit disappointed that his tail hitting the staircase wasn't used as a percussion track...

Very good song, Franc. Strong lyrics and the use of repetitive words in differing contexts is clever. Your layered vocals work well, too. Philip's guitars insinuate themselves throughout the song but never seem to get in each other's way. There are some very nice licks running through it. Quality post, gentlemen. Regards, Peter.
