While you were sleeping, they pushed upon your door. While you were sleeping, they crept along your floor. You counted sheep and fantasised this dreamless sleep would ever stop the cries of a world that spins on selfishness and lies. Such and awful sight, you close your eyes. While you were sleeping they all passed through. You entertained fair-wealther friends and pretenders. While you were sleeping they all left you without a pennyfor services rendered. While you were sleeping, they rifled through your draws. While you were sleeping it was no concern of yours. In a world that spins on selfishness and lies such an awful sight to close your eyes. Wake up! The dawn will come today,you'll be climing out that bed to nothing. Just because you turn away from everything, doesn't mean to say it isn't happening. While you were sleeping they torched your home, tore the clothes from off the body you surrendered. While you were sleeping they all left you without a penny for services rendered. They tore the clothes from off the body you surrendered. They took your life away and nobody remembered. Just because you turn away from everything, doesn't mean to say it isn't happening.
