07. Sleep

Riley Armstrong
by Riley Armstrong



 

Looking straight at the light
It never used to be that bright last night
But it's a new day with fuzz in my eyes
Alarm is still ringing when I open the blinds
How do these people do it?
They are like driving around like there's nothing to it
I imagine it's like the medication their on
Or probably just the coffee but
One thing is certain in life
And that is that today I'm going to eat cereal
I mean come on let's get our priorities straight
But before I know it I'm out the door late
Just trying to catch some rat or some race
Or something I'm not quite sure what it is
So for now I just best keep moving
And by nine AM my brain and my body
Finally decide to meet
And we come to the same conclusion as yesterday
That I never get enough sleep

CHORUS
Sleep, no I never get enough
Always waking up tired
Sleep, no I never get enough
If I don't show up I might get fired
Sleep, no I never get enough
Always waking up tired
Sleep, no I never get enough
If I don't show up I might get fired

They call it commuting
But I think they should call it intravenous
Cause it's what I need every time I get
Stuck behind a truck, just trying to turn left
Just trying to turn left, why are you trying to turn left
Why don't you park your silly cube van
Hop in I'll drop you off
Cause at this rate we'll both be late
But I'd rather be late than sitting here doing nothing
And by nine a.m. my brain and my body
Finally decide to meet
And we come to the same conclusion as yesterday
That I never get enough sleep

BRIDGE
Sleep go on and sleep some more
Sleep go on and sleep some more
