The moon is out with the stars
I’m outside chasing cars
Confident one can hit me
And take me out to a paradise I wish to see
I just want to out of this place to refrain
You rape me in the words of Kurt Cobain
Not physically, but mentally
Stanley Milgram in disguise
I’m sure one day I can again rise
Not for you, but for a friend
One ready to take it to the end
But till then I’ll sleep on it
If I can actually get to bed

Late sleeper dreaming away from life
He is seeking a love without strife
The last one burned him tonight
His being is the only one he can fight

Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back
Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back

There in bed, he sleeps alone
In my heart was his home
Evicted by emotions that rage
He fears going back in my cage
“You did nothing wrong” I say
So why do you feel worthless anyway?

Late sleeper dreaming away from life
He is seeking a love without strife
The last one burned him all night
His being is the only one he can fight

Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back
Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back

Surely, one day I’ll sleep, maybe even twice
Alcohol does not help, writing is my only vice
Use the pen, never the sword
You having a great life is such a fine reward
Now back to sunset filled dreams of the one
A lady in waiting that never seems to come
As I drown in tears for you
I’ll leave it up to you to see if they are red or blue

Late sleeper dreaming away from life
He is seeking a love without strife
The last one burned him all night
His being is the only one he can fight

Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back
Late sleeper dreaming
He can’t wake up
Late sleeper drifting
He can’t come back
