A Deep Sleep
I can't rely on my blue lying eyes To navigate safely this perilous life Bone headed, exhaustively shredded My only means of escape Honestly, I could succeed If it weren't for this battle between myself and me And I the pacifist, or maybe masochist Refuse to take a side The thunderous vanguard approaches the keep But I wanted the quiet so I could get some sleep To get lost in a dream so sanguine and deep Covered with dirt six feet underground without so much as peep You may ask why, but I've already tried To explain I'm just tired and this isn't goodbye I need to regroup, to rethink, redo My plan of attack for a while And in this sanctum subterranean Away from the din, restfully laying In wait for the right time The right mind to reemerge The thunderous vanguard approaches the keep But I wanted the quiet so I could get some sleep To get lost in a dream so sanguine and deep Covered with dirt six feet underground without so much as peep Lay it on me nice and thick The Earth's weighted blanket over me, the relic Lay it on me nice and thick And years down the line, someone might dig me up Come dig me up Or I'll just do it myself when I've rested enough
