Can't Sleep

I can't sleep

Three melatonin down in this night time exodus

And I'm still dragging myself through a desert of thoughts

Every once in a while I'll

Look back at miles of footsteps

Blankets, pillows, shifting dunes

Mr. Sandman Bring me relief

Bring me REM ignorance

Bring me sleep

Plant a seed under my pillow

That'll put a head on my shoulders

Invest yesterday's two cents

Make me a tomorrow millionaire
