Sleep

There's a peculiar type of clarity
After six hours drinking in a bar
You can maybe walk on water
Or reach out and stroke a star

The answer to so many questions
Is there clearly in your head
Tomorrow you'll tell the world
But just now you need your bed

And by the coming morning
You'll almost certainly find
Those significant thoughts will
Have been wiped from the mind

The world will never know
Just what it has lost
Or what that final drink
Has really truly cost

Such a tragic situation
Enough to make one weep
So many inspired insights
Just gone for the need of sleep

There's a peculiar type of clarity
After six hours drinking in a bar
You can maybe walk on water
Or reach out and stroke a star
