There's a time between / sunfall and moonrise / when my brain / loses sight of itself / and I have to call it back for / a moment to keep track / of where its been / in that twilight hell // look out for that nightlife
will take you to sin city / and some backwater towns / before you can rise / you'll be washed up--another kid / with just another sound // there's a time / in the late morning daylight / when the sun hits the / top of the sky / when I just can't stand up and be / the man that I dream of / with a million songs and nothing but time // look out for / that A.M. will make you / think sleep is / the only refuge / from a day full of failing / and the fractured feeling / that there's not / a thing you can do // and now is the time I always / sing of my great love and / the good folks in life / and I'll do my best / until the day that I die / but I just can't help from crying // because the artist is just a gambler / sometimes he's up
and / sometimes he's down / writing his way to be more than / another kid with just another sound
