lyrics

Your day at the crossroads over
You're back from your knee-scrape dive
There's no point to staying sober
Or singing an anxious lullaby

Join the conversation
Join your friends out back
But when your eyes start drooping
A lullaby attacks

So you turn off
All the lights on the stoop
But they still spin in your head
You got so much more thinking to do
Why can't you dream instead?

Go to bed, go to bed

You're off to an okay party
You put on your okay dress
You're not used to acting single
You think you're no good at it

And you're stuck in gridlock traffic in this town
That you've learned to hate
I think you're leaving soon, but
You just don't know how to stay

You can turn off
All the lights in DC
But they still spin in your head
You got so much more thinking to do
Why can't you dream instead?

Go to bed, go to bed

Just take the night off
Just take the night off
Just take the night off

Inside a dome-shaped tent lives a ride
Called the mind scrambler
I photograph the lines, as if to prove
That I ain't the only one there

And nowadays I laugh out loud
When you tell me that I'm so laid back
You know at this very moment
My mind is scrambling

To turn off
How I feel about you
But you still spin in my head
I got so much more thinking to do
Why can't I dream instead?

We can turn off
All the carnival rides
But they still spin in our head
We got so much more thinking to do
Why can't we dream instead?

(All I can see when I draw down my eyelids
Reruns of all the longest days
Sensation of falling)

Go to bed, go to bed
Go to bed, go to bed
Go to bed, go to bed
Go to bed, go to bed
