I Have Slept In

now it's easy to see
how much time i've wasted on me
now there's a new light in the air
it's the thing that crash-landed up there

what has just been won
a new hand, a new thumb
i am almost alive, but not quite
can we start over right?
i have slept in so long

so yesterday i woke up in flames
i guess i knew it would come and it came
but the land was dying of flood
i could wash out my eardrums with mud
fill my long white head with words
watch the old spirit trying to purge
all of the kids and the houses and me
that's when i met you in the military
