daysleeper       

The bull and the bear are marking their territories
They're leading the blind with their international glories

I('m the) screen, the blinding light
I('m the) screen, I work at night

I see today with a newsprint frame
My night is colored headache-grey
Don't wake me
(You're) so much
Daysleeper

I cried the other night
C      Cmaj7      C 
I can't even say why
C      Cmaj7      C               
flourescent, flat, caffeine lights
C      Cmaj7      C   
It's furious balancing

I('m the) screen, the blinding light
I('m the) screen, I work at night
Bridge:
C C C C x2

I see today with a newsprint frame
My night is colored headache grey
Don't wake me (you're) so much
The ocean machine is set to night
I'll squeeze into heaven and Valentine
My bed is pulling me, gravity, daysleeper
Daysleeper, daysleeper, daysleeper, daysleeper
