"Sleepyhead" as written by Gerald Thomas Fitzgerald, Dale Grundle, Peter Kelly and Alice Siobhan Lemon....
Where I am's nowhere it seems when thoughts of you get a hold of me
I squint my eyes and try to see just where's the line between a coma and a dream
Oh, sleepyhead, get out of bed
The sun is up and it's getting late, so shake those lazy bones awake

The rhythm of your heart beeps loud until it stops and robs the room of sound
The doctors filter in and out and try to act like they know what they're talking about
Oh, sleepyhead, get out of bed
The sun is up and it's getting late, so shake those lazy bones awake

The sun is up and it's getting late
Yeah, the sun is up and it's getting late
Yeah, the sun is up, it's getting late
Where I am's nowhere it seems when thoughts of you get a hold of me

    General Commenti think that this is about a person whose special someone is in a coma and he/she doesn't know exactly how to differentiate between a coma and a dream. it's sad but i like it.

    General Commentwell it is about a coma, but to get the true meaning of this song and well the album in general, you really need to read Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. The album was inspired by the book.

    General CommentThe song's clearly about a loved one in a coma. Interestingly, I recall the album being dedicated "in loving memory" to someone, though I can't remember who...
