there are screams next door
it is only the television
people being tortured and exploited
I do not hear them
I have turned down the sound
I do not see them
because I am
sleeping right now

don’t try to disturb me
mix me up or unnerve me
you don’t deserve me
I am sleeping right now

I take drugs
drink dope
they help keep me
so I can cope
don’t disturb me
I’m sleeping
this dream is all
that I dare
to show you I care
