lyrics

Well I woke up one night from a dream
I dreamt that I was trying to go to sleep
And I can't see why it seems to hard
When I can fall asleep driving a car

I've been sleeping all day with my eyes wide open
Did I miss anything? I didn't miss anything.

Well I fell asleep one day in a chair
My mind didn't feel like it was going anywhere
And right when I felt like I was learning something
I woke up from a deep deep dream

I've been sleeping all day with my eyes wide open
Did I miss anything? I didn't miss anything.

The path of life is made of straight lines
The lines are very small
And the path is very wide
And it winds

Well you say your life hasn't been the best and that
Makes you want to cry, and you think
Why doesn't anybody feel the way that I do,
Why doesn't anybody else just want to die?

Because you've been awake for hours,
And they've been sleeping their whole lives
You could bury your head and go to bed
Or you could live and sleep with open eyes
