i'll try to sleep, but i lie awake
because something just had to remind me
silence matched with a feeling
that shuts you out
either you give in, or you will put your foot down
with the systematic dysfunction of my health
i stand one hand less, content to relearn myself
with the syncopated new technique to teach the heartbeat sermonette has been received, waiting just to see relief
"with the vision in my brain,
and the music in my veins,
and the dirty rhythm in my blood"

    General Commentfirst i have to say i love how the first lines of this plays off of the previous track "maybe for now," /to awake to find me, dreaming to/.
    tracks 2,3,4,6,9 on "3" all make reference to sleep which is another cool way this album ties itself together.

    We've all felt this before I'm sure... impossible slumber after an argument/misunderstanding/insert euphemism. Joe's language in this is great, and topped off with the Thomas Dolby quote that fits so well... wunderbar!
