I'm so well-rested I can't even sleep
I like sleeping up high but I can't stand the heat
(Chop wood, bend at the knees
carry water, take a drink)
When the sadness monster has got you in it's
Jaws and all seems lost
When the sadness monster has got you in it's
Mouth and it won't bite down
Sometimes there's nothing left to say
Always worried about the future
'cause you can't escape your past
how long can you keep on running?
how far? how fast?
The clock goes off
and I want it to stop
I'm missing you
I can't get off
I can't get up
I'm caught in my dreams
I miss you
even when I'm asleep
I'll let it run out
I'll shut it all off
without you around,
I get lost
If it's not you calling I don't really care
There's no point in trying if you're not there
Why pay my bills for a house I can't keep
or for a phone line that'll never ring?
