lyrics

Nyquil gives me nightmares and I have a certain theory
That the sickness is converted into fear, stress and fury
And I dreamt I was a firefighter
Keeping my own home from burning
Down
along the edge of drunkenness and sobriety
I tried to write a song about the horrors of society
So I went and read the daily news and
Learned about monsters disguised as
People
give me nightmares and I have a certain theory
That if we were just tired more we wouldn't feel so weary
All the God forsaken time
It's time I got my whole life back in
Line
up and see the history of man is taking place
And look no further than the bones plastered in your pennant face
And think about all the years
That you've just let saunter on by

I am always fighting fires in my dreams
It seems I am afraid of loosing everything

Hot sauce horrifies me 'cause I got some in my eye one time
And I found out that with some burns, water must run through your eyes
And patience and endurance were the
Two big things I learned about that
Day
to day I wonder whether something better is even out there
Then I get up from my bed and rub my eyes all wide and red
It never ceases to amaze me that I have been at this for five whole
Years
go by as we're all fighting aging, waging time's undying war against our bloodshot eyes
I hope I get to sleep tonight and dream about water running through my eyes and not my
Hands
are quite the useless things, writing letters, plucking strings
and looking for others to hold and rubbing eyes that burn and sting
I have a certain theory that every day it's getting harder to get by

I am always fighting fires in my dreams
It seems I am afraid of loosing everything
