I'm born
I'm alive
I breathe
In a moment or two I realize,
That this sphere upon which I reside,
Is asleep upon it's feet.
Should I go back to sleep?

I'm born
I'm alive
I breathe
In a moment or two I realize,
That this sphere upon which I reside,
Is asleep upon it's feet.
Should I go back to sleep?

Chorus:
You stare at me like I’m a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you need me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow the truth,
All the more easily.

We orbit the sun
I grow up
My open eyes see.....
A zombified, somnambulist society.
Leaving us as vitamins,
For the hibernating human animal.
Do you, do you, do you see what I mean?

You stare at me like I’m a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you want me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow the truth,
All the more easily.

And I wonder, will you digest me?

Into the sleep machine I won't plug in,
In fact I'd rather die before I will comply
To you, my friend
I write the reason I still live
'cause in my mind it's set the vitamin is ripe to give.

Coming closer to another 2000 years
You and I will pry
The closed eye of the sleep machine.

You stare at me like I’m a vitamin
On the surface you hate,
But you know you want me.
I'll come dressed as any pill you deem fit.
Whatever helps you swallow the truth,
All the more easily.
