I really should be fast asleep

It’s funny, I’m not tired

The night has taken over me

The light of day, expired


There’s a spider crawling up my wall
He doesn’t notice me at all

Perhaps he’s uninspired
By the fact that I’m not tired


My brain is running on caffeine
It really should be in a dream

Is that truly what I desire?
Cause I’m really not that tired


I close my eyes and try to rest

Still, visions dance before me

Why do I even bother?

Now where’s that cup of coffee?


Sweet liquid gold is most required
Oh, did I mention I’m not tired?
