my lyricsbox
Receiving department, 3 am
staff cuts have socked up the overage
directives are posted.
no callbacks, complaints.
everywhere is calm.

Hong Kong is present
Taipei awakes
all talk of circadian rhythm

Chorus
I see today with a newsprint fray
my night is coloured headache grey
daysleeper. daysleeper. 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
Im the screen, I work at night.

Chorus
I see today with a newsprint fray
my night is coloured headache grey
don't wake me with so much
daysleeper

I cried the other night
I can't even say why
flourescent flat caffeine lights
its furious balancing

I'm the screen, the blinding light
Im the screen, I work at night

Chorus
I see today with a newsprint fray
my night is coloured headache grey
don't wake me with so much

The ocean machine is set to 9 I'll squeeze into heaven and valentine
my bed is pulling me,
gravity
daysleeper. daysleeper.
daysleeper. daysleeper. daysleeper.
This song is from the album "Up" and "In Time - The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003".
