One More Red Nightmare

This song is by King Crimson and appears on the album Red (1974).

Pan American nightmare
Ten thousand feet funfair
Convinced that I don't care
Safe as houses I swear
I was just sitting musing
The virtues of cruising
When altitude dropping
My ears started popping
One more red nightmare

Sweat beginning to pour down
My neck as I turn round
I heard fortune shouting
"Get off of this outing!"
A farewell swan song, see
You know how turbulence can be
The stewardess made me
But the captain forbade me
One more red nightmare

Reality stirred me
My angel had heard me
The prayer had been answered
A reprieve has been granted
The dream was now broken
Though rudely awoken
Really safe and sound
Asleep on the Greyhound
One more red nightmare
