I’d rather be awake than sleeping, curled up like a corpse
I’ll make it through the daylight, hold tight, alright, it’s okay

it’s just not your day today
slurring your words, right on the verge, what are you trying to say?

when you’re in bed and your mind is swimming in possessive inscriptions of thought that won’t cease to exist,
and you rewind your day ‘til the moment you woke up

church bells were ringing at dawn
it’s not your day, sleep it away, wait ‘til the feeling fades


from Odd Job, released February 10, 2017
