Thus concludes another day
Peanut butter by the spoonful,
And staring into space
On a futon in a room full
Of dishes I could wash
Songs that I could write
Books that I could read
But this is every night

It’s not as if I come alive
In the witching hour
After the cicadas’ song has died
All I do is hold the cushions down
The worst night watchman in this whole town
The axis of a blindly spinning mind

I’m becoming a deadbeat
Synapses locked in a dead heat
The amber glow from my window
The only light on the dead street
I’ve done nothing of import
Even though the moon is long gone
Like Dallas Green, I’m wondering
Whose side the night is on
