An electronic song about insomnia.

(Parts 7 & 8 of TPV)


I tuck myself in
And pray for some dreams
But just look up at the ceiling
And count the tiles and the seams

I look back
How I spent my day, such a waste of time,
And I've got to do it all again
When the clock strikes nine.

To sleep. To sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream.

My apartment
Is not the kind of place that has a view
Can't tell when the sun comes up,
Ain't no way to say, "Goodnight, Moon."
But I believe
In more than what's in plain sight
So I reach out to the Princess of Dreams
To climb inside my head tonight,

To sleep. To sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream.

Won't you teach me to fly
And show me the way
To your castle in the sky?
Oh, dream,
Take me away,
And spare me
From the nightmare that's become my ordinary day.


from The Princess Variations, released August 7, 2017
