That's Me.

So I put off sleep and my dreams
Are dying for release
But they can wait

So I put off death and my soul
Is somewhere out of me
It's too late

So I put off life and my future
Can't look anymore dim
But its fair

So I put off hope and my purpose
Is seeming less clear
It's not fair

I want to dream a calm skyline
With death a welcome highway sign
On this road called life ahead of me
With reason and purpose easy to see
But that's not me and will never be
So down my spirit I call whiskey
And pass out on top of the sheets
To wake up cold and shivering.

That's me. That's me, oh no. That's me.

Wow. Another wonderful song of yours.
The conciseness of it reminds me of Death Cab for Cutie's lyrics. (I'm a fan of DCC :D )
Anyway, I guess I'll have to favorite another song of yours. Hahahaha.
