I woke up in a storm of knives
throwing themselves through my skies
there's not enough coffee in the world
this morning's foggy and I'm maybe sure

the word you're looking for is lost
so quiet but you've always talked
in spite of what you have to say
3:28 and I'm awake in bed
pulling tangles in my jead
I've lost a marble tongue today

God make me never sleep again

humid smoke drips from my cold skin
a race against a ghost I'll never win
there's not enough guts in me to try
and break this sonic ground that makes me cry

you can't remember where you put yourself
are you behaving like someone else
sleeping might be free but dreaming isn't cheap
I've had some dreams that no one will find out
I still don't know what they're about
let's call it quits and go to sleep

I hope I never dream again
