Insomnia

from Private Lives by Adam Baratz

lyrics

Day's end
Take off my shoes
Put on a movie
Switch to the news

I can't think now
I shouldn't drink now
That's how it goes

Sit still
Watch for a while
They're always laughing
They always smile

I don't feel it
I can't conceal it
Each stumble shows

All I really need's a little space
If I drop my guard I lose my head
Something in me feeds on eating shit
When'd it get so hard to stay straight

Can't sleep
Turn on the light
It only buzzes
Nothing is right

I've tried waiting
I'll keep on waiting
That's all I know

Clock ticks
I count along
It moves me forward
Call it my song

I will rest soon
Be at my best soon
Yes, soon, I'll go

When I get to work I feel alright
I don't have to be what I don't want
I can be the jerk who stays there late
They don't have to see me like this

When dawn pours in
My mind is clear
I greet the day
I have no fear
