    Insomnia

    On an oasis in the darkness
    I'm overcome by my weakness
    Dreams of sucess clash with experiences
    leaving my body and mind sleepless
    Insomnia wreaking havoc and wreck
    Desperate to reach a dream state
    but my attempts won't connect
    Whishing fate would shut my eyes
    and fade me out
    Combination of fear and hope
    keep my battered legs on route
    During the day I walk up right
    on different worlds
    it's so vivid
    Such power, role playing played
    a role in making me agitated
    and livid
    So eger to escape from insermontable
    set backs
    I tossed and turned in all directions
    but my eyes remained closed to the facts
    My recurring nightmare should induce
    sleep seamless
    Instead my clock-radio reads
    3 am ceasless

    I'm tired
