It’s Not Time to Go into the Dark yet

if you close your eyes

and wish with all your heart

you would make reality go away

but fairy tales are for bed time

and you can’t remember when was the last time

when night came

daylight won’t go away

and traffic won’t stop

but your eyes are growing tired

and all you want is to curl into a ball

find a womb and fall into a bottomless sleep

but your feet and hands can’t stop moving

there’s so much to have and so little time

so no matter what happens

you never turn off the lights

because it’s only when you are awake

that the world will keep spinning

stars will stay on course

and God will keep His throne

but when you nod off on your way home

you can hear nurseries in the background

but you keep saying:

it’s not time to go into the dark yet

it’s not time to go into the dark yet

it’s not time to go into the dark yet.
