The thin line of reality and dream
Where all is not quite what it may seem
That place in between sleep and awake
Shall I press snooze for the sake
Of 5 minutes shut eye
Asking god, why?
Why do I have to go to work today?
All I want to do is stay home and play
My friends work half the hours for twice the pay
Quite frankly it shouldn’t be so hard to get my way
A dream I slumber in, the nightmare I wake to
To a job where drones in their masses turn up to
It’s really no skin off my nose as I join the faceless mass
But I wonder how did the joyful details of my life come to pass?
