Verse 1:
Started working on my memoirs, psychological neo-noir, accompanied by foreign choirs and such/
But with each increasing age, there’s more often a blank page. I guess at this stage I’m out of touch/

(So I wrote) I can’t see my hand in front of my face, it’s too dark for that now/
And I can’t hear myself think in this place, oh it’s just too loud/

Verse 2:
Had a rational thought today. Oh but what I wouldn’t pay to have one of those more than once a month/
One good thing about feeling crazy: lots of things get kind of hazy, but those lucid moments pack a punch/
I called myself up today, saw my own name on call display, decided that I wouldn’t pick it up/
Left myself a lengthy message, hope one of these days I get it. I guess until then I’m out of luck/


Verse 3:
Started walking in my sleep, but I know time isn’t cheap. Decided I would make it more worthwhile/
Put a treadmill by my bed, so I can walk on it instead. It’s so efficient that it makes me smile/


It’s been a while now since I broke my mirror/
It must be at least a couple of years/
This writer’s block I just can’t shake it, so I guess I’ll have to fake it/
That’ll have to do for now/

Chorus x2.
