Work, consuming play, it's a fiery wrath, numbers your days
Play, sad and alone, losing its strength, dead at the tone

I can't wait, oh my babe
No I can't wait, oh my babe, no not today

The devil, presented as a god, omnipotent as grass, dirtier than sod
God, in need of a break, weightless words prayed in haste, to a cloud for goodness sake,
Break out and be free, when you don't listen to yourself, it reminds yourself of me
Freedom, what does that make up, are we doing what we want, if all we want is to get up

Give me a break, I've had a long day and I just wanted to say
Babe please leave me alone, because I'm all out of space on this bed where I lay
You can see it's the only place where I can just be all that's alive in these dreams
That feel dead, though sometimes they wake, come out and play, just go away
