Frankie,

It's being sung from the POV of those who wilfully stay asleep to what's happening - so that's why it sounds like a LN song - but it's not - it's having a dig at them

"don't wake me, I'm sleeping... it was just a man with something to prove..."

If you listen to the start, he DREAMS it was a LN scenario and he begs not to be woken up...

It's a fucking GREAT song! A wake up call...

Ah, fantastic! I've got two kids screaming around the house so didn't get the gist of it. I'm pleased. It is a beautiful song. Thanks Greg.
