Iâ€™m ill with a fever, I feel like a child
I lay in the dark â€™til morning came.
Itâ€™s so unoriginal
And I feel it worse at night
I know itâ€™s not terminal
But Iâ€™m near half-dead fright
And freezing cold.
But sooner than woke up
To find it all unchanged
Iâ€™ll sleep through the day til the daylight ends.
â€˜Cos itâ€™s all so familiar
As it comes around again
The same taste to everything
The same unbroken chain
That still remains.
With morning I rise,
A dream that wonâ€™t leave me,
Youâ€™re sad, naked and pale
And youâ€™re reaching for the rail
You took a look inside, how could you peel away
Or break the shell, the hurt youâ€™ve hidden so well
For all your days.
And youâ€™re going down
As you slip beneath the waves,
Wonâ€™t make a sound
Wonâ€™t even leave a trace before you.
I hear an appalling sigh from the streets below
And itâ€™s creeping fear congealed in stone
That paves the crazy road.
And all are succumbing and they look so hopelessly
At the heartbreak, itâ€™s easy to deal with,
Just take these and youâ€™ll really never feel it.
