It's one in the morning and I just can't sleep
I want to count sheep but that makes me a creep
There's no space in my head for lost sheep anyway
When my voices and worries and fear come to play
I'm stuck in the space between sleep and reality
Unable to dream without any finality
I need some relief but you're all that I've got
And you're further away than we all had once thought.
Please help me to make all of this chaos just count
I've got too much still happening, an infinite amount
It takes too much time to just sit and decode
Will all of these sparks cause my head to explode?
I'm so worried and haunted, I don't have the answer
My thoughts twirl 'round like the ugliest dancer
Not careful of tripping or making a mess
Just jumping and dancing in it's changing dress.
It's now half past three and I can't see it ending
I can't turn it off, it's just there, unpretending
I'll soon get right up and act like nothing happened
Like I'm normal and happy, not obviously flattened
Please come right back home, I need you here beside me
To counter the dancer, oh to just once be carefree
You're the cure for thinking, my happier nicotine
But for now I exist, I drink caffeine, don't intervene.
