Idea

My mind might take hours to change
Back to normal, she smiled, she didn’t see
Sheer tiredness keeps the sun in the sky
Loose habit holds the moon and the tides
They’ll hold me if they’re able
They’ll hold me if they’re able
I’ll look on this as stupid
I’ll act as if I dreamt it

I’ve been living  selfish drowsy and proud
False promise lives with me like a friend
This servant, tired of doing it right
Smile, sheepish, follows girl into room

They always knew I’d do it
They sensed I was a traitor
It lasts until it changes
It changes when you want it

Everybody give up
Don’t be so careful
Tear your lives to pieces
And only you will know
Nobody is watching
Come and take me over
Make me stay a liar
And only you will know
And you won’t even care

I’ll hold you if I’m able
I’ll hold you if I’m able
And if I am a failure
Then just send me straight back to her

I like this, not being able to tell
What’s useful and what’s going to put me to use
One morning I will give up and go
Bone lazy I will give up and go
