um uh zombie

too much late at night
playin stayin in the lights
prancin dancin in the dark
runnin barefoot in the park
too much early a.m.
painting faces on the train
rickety rackety
rackety rick
need caffeine now
need it quick
and i arrive and i am here
to sit and stare and type & tap
can’t lay down now, cannot nap
taking orders on the telephone
um uh zombie
um uh zombie
um uh zombie
drone
can’t elicit energy
to find my way back home
eyes closing
dozing dozing
i must be a sight
someday i’ll give up the day job
but how will i pay for the nights?
