I’ve been sleeping open-eyed my whole life. (My entire life)
I’m day dreaming of your eyes at night. (Of your eyes that night)
I hope you have not forgotten me.
That smile means so much to me.

I’ve been thinking: “Today I’ll get it right”
I can’t forget. (The last time we held on tight)
Can’t you see I’m running out of teeth?
That smile of yours means so much to me.


You are a vessel;
Light travels through you.

Your are a medium;
Feelings pertain to you.

Define your Self
or someone'll do it for you.

You've been sleeping your whole life.
Maybe it's right in front of your red eyes.

If you weren't so perfect,
Maybe it'd be okay.

You can't list in two-stave (right?)
Without staying up late.

As you realize you've lost,
It's already too late.

You know exactly who you are...
