Daymare

Daymare

I’m having nightmares while I’m wide awake
And while I’m sleeping, they come to me
Pleased to meet you, my most saddening fear
It’s been a while since I’ve shed any tears

It’s time for me to waken into sleep again
It’s time for me to fall into more bad dreams
When you leave me to cross that river
I stay awake upset, daymares invigorated

Afraid, I hold a knife under my pillow
1000 thoughts bombarding my fragile mind
Chaotic thoughts, I’m feeling fine, though
It’s nice to know that this head is mine, you know

While you sleep and rest, carefree at best
I’m up so late to stay in control
Then when I finally succumb to sleep
I wake up terrified, and begin to weep

It’s like my future seen from the past
Every nightmare feels like it’ll be my last
I’ve dreamed of me as a very old man
And even he can’t remember he’s had bad dreams

I struggle to see the lines, of seven billion lives
As I wander through another shapeless day
I stumble and crawl through night and day
And right now I wouldn’t have it, any other way
