And the moon, it wants to give me away
And my God wants me to pray
I hate apples for being red
I hate these voices up in my head

I don't ever want to wake and find myself awake
I don't ever want to die and find myself already dead
I don't ever want to love and find myself in love
Well every single day's the same, and I guess that's great

I think the walls in here are caving in
Did they just say something and touch my skin?
Why won't this picture just answer me?
Be my friend tonight; don't let me dream

I don't ever want to wake and find myself awake
I don't ever want to die and find myself already dead
I don't ever want to love and find myself in love
Well every single day's the same, and I guess that's great

Got me looking for more
Got me tired and poor
I was passed out on the floor
I'll just drink more moonshine yeah

I feel my neck stroked by the clock's big hands
I sip my coffee, but I am drinking sand
I won't be mummified in satin sheets
Because I know my life's better than my dreams

I don't ever want to wake and find myself awake
I don't ever want to die and find myself already dead
I don't ever want to love and find myself in love
Well every single day's the same, and I guess that's great

    General CommentAnother great song by the Low Life...maybe even their best in terms of meaning and how deep and passionate this band can be. This song can have many interpretations and I wish people would talk about it more. To me its about a person who is lost between reality, a dream and a drunken stuper.
    So many interesting lyrics, one of the best is : "I don't ever want to love and find myself in love."
    He is afraid if he starts to love someone he will actually fall in love and get hurt again, and thats why he drinks to make himself numb to those feelings. But its ironic because when he dies, he doesn't want to realize he is already dead inside. So there is a lot of internal conflict withtin this song.
