In between awake and sleep
Where all our unknown thoughts are caught
I jerk and twitch, a leaping fish
Finds open water, overboard

It swims back beyond comprehension
Free of reason, weight or wish
While my mind's line snaps straight with tension
Struggling with another fish

It keeps you warm, you keep it quiet
You carry it like cups of tea
You sleep on it, but still don't buy it
Carry it like a disease

Quite enough for you to hear, a child born to the unprepared
You tell yourself you've no idea
But it is there, it's there

A to B, to A to bed
Wake up at A
Each day's the same
You thought you'd thought it all before
Now something's gnawing at your brain

Quite enough for you to hear, a child born to the unprepared
You tell yourself you've no idea
But it is there, it's there
