"Second Sleep" lyrics - THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS

"Second Sleep"
(A.C. Newman)

Been awake for awhile
Going deep, going long
Rifling through what I keep
In the floats, what we found
Under glass, all the hours
Filled with Hail Mary passes

It all sort of fastens to you
As you sleep

Been awake, thinking fast, cannot sleep
Second thoughts, second rate Socrates
At dream's door, feeling flat, searching high
Left outside, like a vampire in light

At this time of the morning you'd swear it was night
It's enough living proof of the use of lights on (lights on)

Been awake for awhile
