And I won't sleep with socks on,
I'm scared I might dream.
And I won't set my alarm clock,
I'm scared of its scream.

And did you know that sleeping in peace,
Is a condition of the weak?
I rest aggressively, restlessly and only in threes.

Dreams pass straight through my skull
And out my feet
Into the dead space of my home
Between the walls and under beds
Where it's fast, and safe, and sound asleep
And unaware of any threat
And did you know that inspiration strikes at 3AM?
I’m blessed. I’m cursed.
I’ll write it down before I fall asleep again

Dreams pass straight through my skull and out my feet.

In the middle of the night
I'm floating outside
At the edge of my driveway,
I'm glowing in the moonlight
And I'm thinking about my neighbors
All asleep in the same way
Atop a second story staircase
In the distance there's a train saying that,
Travels can be made by the sleeping or awake,
And your medicine will help clear the fear from your veins,
And your bones no longer ache
And your walls no longer cave
Your breathing gets deeper
When your bodies are safe.
