Liner Notes: 

One of the things I was planning to do as part of 50/90 was write a tiny musical. I didn't get round to doing it all, but got a number or two. This is the first/title track. Vamping it on the uke as the piano is out of action...

Lyrics: 

[Ensemble]
The day the monsters came
took people by surprise
though if we’d wished to know,
the truth was right before our eyes.
We knew this day would come
the signs were there for years
but there’s no stronger instinct
than running from our fears.

[Solo 1]
We’d wake up in the morning
and go about our lives
as if no one had told us
that’s how a monster thrives.

[Solo 2]
A hundred years had passed
since the monsters came before
so we just turned away
till they were clawing at our door.

[Ensemble]
We knew this day would come
the signs were there for years
but there’s no stronger instinct
than running from our fears.

[Solo 3]
The experts tried to warn us
but we just turned away.
Like modern-day Cassandras
they watched their warnings fray.

[Ensemble]
We knew this day would come
the signs were there for years
but there’s no stronger instinct
than running from our fears.
