Album The Soft Machine. Why Are We Sleeping? Lyrics. It begins with a blessing, it ends with a curse Making life easy by making it worse "My mask is my master", the trumpeter weeps But his voice is so weak, as he speaks from his sleep Why are we sleeping?" People are watching, people who stare Waiting for something that's already there "Tomorrow I'll find it", the trumpeter screams And remembers he's hungry, and drowns in his dreams  . Why are we sleeping?" More on Genius. Why Are We Sleeping?" Track Info. The Soft Machine Soft Machine. 1. Hope for Happiness.

Why Are We Sleeping? Too Much Sleep. Why Are We Sleeping? Joy of a Toy. Probe 1968.

From the album cover of The Soft Machine (1968), featuring Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers and Mike Ratledge. After yesterday's Ray Davies soaring sleep song performed by Marion, a more psychedelic take on different levels of consciousness by those Canterbury pioneers from their first album of 1968, The Soft Machine. Why are we sleeping?" People are watching, people who stare Waiting for something that's already there "Tomorrow I'll find it," the trumpeter screams And remembers he's hungry, and drowns in his dreams Why are we sleeping?" My head is a nightclub with glasses and wine The customers dancing or just making time While Daevid is cursing, the customers scream Now everyone's shouting, "Get out of my dream!"
