Can't sleep; trying hard to find a rhyme
Can't work; I am tired all the time
Can't eat since my appetite has gone
Can't think when it started to go wrong
Can't move; I've no energy at all
Can't see any end to this in sight
Last week, I could do all of those things
But now, I am just the man who sings

I've searched around for years and years
I've drank in bars; destroyed careers
Sold on a need to be famous

I've seen the good in men survive
Only to fail when I arrive
Convincing them I am blameless

I was the man with future sight
I would change fortunes overnight
Knowing for me it was painless


One day in April, 10:15
Awakened screaming by a dream
Something that touched me was burning

A diamond pin fell from my eye
Then something strange began to cry
"Your will can stop this world turning"

Since then I've fought more than I should
Against the will that I withstood
Hoping I could be its master

But now the dream is all I see
There is no hope of breaking free
One song away from disaster
