Lyrics

The morning takes and sluggard wakes
Configurates aschew
Sideways glances - eyes the chances
Commuters move through
Cardboard home, discarded by the alleys fallen few
The day begins in earnest now
Forward shoe by shoe

A basin fills, the hour glass waits
A tinge of fear, don't hesitate

Sluggard cried and mystified the room
Guaranteed to die unneeded soon
If people tried to live their lives alone
And understand a man's desire to roam

A ring pull clicks, to signify the orders of the day
- They're all the same as numbness grabs a hold before dismay
Any thoughts of past and future under lock and key
The city will not sleep with him, the eyes they all agree

A basin fills the hour glass waits
A tinge of fear don't hesitate

Sluggard cried and mystified the room
Guaranteed to die unneeded soon
If people tried to live their lives alone
And understand a man's desire to roam
