Fast Asleep lyrics

Everybody wants a piece of some easy enterprise
can't this world cut your face and carry the news that you've got a gift to be given?
cut it out cut your loss, you don't dream you fantasize
and this is how we measure the cost of enjoying the pain of 21 year of good living

gotta take something great just to get me out of bed
music to my ears it makes you happy when you tell me
this place is like a womb you live so well from doing nothing
one day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you sweat

and I woke up with a song 'cause I had a dream, yes I had a vision of people
lying in the sun
sleeping on the rocks and stones
waiting just to die
they were just fast asleep like lions
they were just fast asleep like lions in summer

when you look at me do you see someone with a future?
music to my ears it makes me happy when you tell me
this place is like a womb you live so well from doing nothing
one day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you

swear all the years of wasted time
half divine
half what you could be

oh, all this time they let this city
get sad and empty
'cause they're only half awake

when you look at me do you see someone with a future?
one day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you sweat
