Midnight State Of Mind
Six a.m...... the alarm is beepin'
Hit the snooze and keep on sleepin'
Crazy dream...... want to go on keepin'
That midnight state of mind;
Another workday, and I'm not ready
To hit the grind and keep goin' steady
Colleagues kickin' over somethin' petty -
Want my midnight state of mind;
Tryin' to work but my mind's not in it,
Wantin' my way but I just can't win it,
Just can't tolerate one more minute -
Without my midnight state of mind;
Clock out time and I'm out the door
Gotta run over to the grocery store
Pick up some chips and a six-pack o' Coors -
Come on midnight state of mind!
Hit the den and log online
Check my e-mail while tryin' to dine
Back on PH and the world is fine -
I'm in my midnight state of mind.
