The break of day still hours away
As I patiently wait for the alarm
This is not a case of insomnia
I’m not tossing, I’m not turning

I can’t tell if this is real
There’s a foggy dew on a clear morning
Maybe it’s all just a dream
I can’t see clear through these tired eyes
I just can’t see

Eye strain makes a blurry vision
Caught in the presence or reminiscing
Let the calm come and take over me
Why worry, going mad in a hurry

There isn’t that much I can do
Can’t tell the clock, can’t turn it back
Strong sense of disbelief
I can’t see clear through these tired eyes
I just can’t see

Tired Eyes
Or just a mental disorder
Tired Eyes
Can’t see truth from lies

Am I lost?
What’s the date?
Why is it still dark?
Stuck on a threshold
