I dreamt I was falling
I never woke up
I dreamt of a warning

So I switched on the T-V
Saw me reading out the news
Another story of a plane crash
Another story of bad news

The TV cracked up open
My baby boy came out
I was looking at my new wife
I ain't writing home about

You can call me, number 5
Please please my my
That's why I am still alive!

I boxed around a sliver ring
With blood stains on my face
I cut the dog with yellow teeth
And drove his car away

You can call me, number 5
Please please my my
Call me number 5
Call me number 5
That's why I'm still alive!
