I'm wasting away in bed all day

Trying not to feel

And clicking in and out of dreams

Avoiding all that's real


And who's to say this isn't good?

And I'm just wasting time?

Laying here, all curled up tight

For security's sublime


Life winks in and out of days

Like razors on my skin

And dancing in dream-worlds now

Is how I'm gonna win


I don't want to give up this life

I'm too scared to retire

And hidden away inside my duvet;

Do dreams make me a liar?
