Awake

Awake

What do you do
On a sleepless night
Your mind is wrestling
Your eyes won’t fight

You feel your body working
You hear the spider crawling
A thousand sounds of silence
And the sound of gnawing

Gnawing on time
Just ticking by
Tick tock said the clock
With no reason why

Crummy shows to be told
Not a single shred of fun
It’s the way of the night
With no game to be won

Put me to sleep
Somebody oh please
I’d like to have a dream
Instead of cheese.
