Paul Bodden: Music & Lyrics

Pouncing Sleep, ABSURDITIES, A Song Cycle: Lost Body Parts & Other Mishaps

(PAUL BODDEN, vocals; SETH WEINSTEIN, piano)
Words & music by Paul Bodden
"Strong Rocking Rhythm"
Pouncing sleep to Cynthia sudden comes!
Catnap pouncing where she lies
Leaping on her sleepy eyes.

Words may gloss her visions ere she falls:
"Gather round, children!" she joyfully calls;
Bounding down the echoing halls,
Pouncing sleep to Cynthia sudden comes!


Moon wife dreaming,
Wide moon gleaming,

Plundering time, plummeting fast,
Sundering ties that bind,
The smothering kind are suddenly offcast!

The thundering vale of truth,
The thundering vale of truth,
The thundering vale of truth she finds at last!

Pouncing sleep to Cynthia sudden comes!
