Dying in Your Dreams

Sleep rests the brain
Also arrests the brain
Stops reasonable thought
When reasonable thought
Is most needed

Vampires do not exist
That friend is not dead
We are NOT going back to the service industry
No one gave us a million dollars (more’s the pity)
And you are not suffocating

You are not suffocating
You are not suffocating

But you wake up screaming
The reasonable thought machine turns on
You were not suffocating
It just felt like dying
