looking straight at the light
it never used to be that bright last night
but it's a new day with fuzz in my eyes
alarm is still ringing when I open the blinds
how do these people do it?
they are like driving around like there's nothing to it
I imagine it's the medication their on
or probably just the coffee but
one thing is certain in life
and that is today I'm going to eat cereal
yeah, today I'm going to eat cereal
I mean come on let's get our priorities straight
but before I know it I'm out the door late
just trying to catch some rat or some race
or something I'm not quite sure what it is
so for now I just best keep running
and by nine AM my brain and my body
finally decide to meet
and we come to the same conclusion as yesterday
that I never get enough sleep

CHORUS:
sleep, no I never get enough
always waking up tired
sleep, no I never get enough
if I don't show up I might get fired
sleep, no I never get enough
always waking up tired
sleep, no I never get enough
if I don't show up I might get fired

they call it commuting
but I think they should call it intravenous
cause it's what I need every time I get
stuck behind a truck, just trying to turn left
just trying to turn left, why are you trying to turn left?
why don't you go park that crazy little cube van
hop in I'll drop you off or something

cause at this rate we'll both be late
but I'd rather be late than both be sitting here doing nothing
and by nine AM my brain and my body
finally decide to meet
and we come to the same conclusion as yesterday
that I never get enough sleep

BRIDGE:
sleep go on and sleep some more
sleep go on and sleep some more

    General CommentThis song is hilarious and so true. Especially the bit about being stuck behind a truck trying to turn left, it is the most annoying thing in the world. Australian's would understand.
