#4233 – dream police

i’m 2 hours late to work because of over-sleeping 3 hours, so why am i yawning? i blame the dream police.

The dream police, they live inside of my head.

The dream police, they come to me in my bed.

The dream police, they’re coming to arrest me, oh no.

You know that talk is cheap, and those rumors ain’t nice.

And when I fall asleep I don’t think I’ll survive the night,

…the night!

‘Cause they’re waiting for me.

They’re looking for me.

Ev’ry single night they’re driving me insane.

Those men inside my brain.

The dream police, they live inside of my head.

(Live inside of my head.)

The dream police, they come to me in my bed.

(Come to me in my bed.)

The dream police, they’re coming to arrest me, oh no.

Well, I can’t tell lies, ’cause they’re listening to me.

And when I fall asleep, bet they’re spying on me tonight, tonight.

‘Cause they’re waiting for me.

They’re looking for me.

Ev’ry single night they’re driving me insane.

Those men inside my brain.

I try to sleep, they’re wide awake, they won’t let me alone.

They don’t get paid or take vacations, or let me alone.

They spy on me, I try to hide, they won’t let me alone.

They persecute me, they’re the judge and jury all in one.

‘Cause they’re waiting for me.

They’re looking for me.

Ev’ry single night they’re driving me insane.

Those men inside my brain.

The dream police, they live inside of my head.

The dream police, they come to me in my bed.

The dream police, they’re coming to arrest me.

yesterday after work i came back to the apartment, and ended up taking a nap at 5 pm. i planned to take only a 2 hour nap, but that turned into a 4 hour nap.

once i woke up at 9 pm i had my dinner and putzed around until what would be an early time for me to go to bed, but i was too awake to fall asleep. then i got news about my mini cooper photo, and i was too awake and too excited to go to sleep. it didn’t help that i saw the music video for “dream police” the other night and have had the song stuck in my head since then, and last night i bought it on itunes and keep listening to it. it’s too peppy to listen to before bedtime. i went to bed anyways, but couldn’t fall asleep.

i barely remember my alarm going off this morning, but only in that “well, it’s after 6 am, and i had it set, so i must have done something to turn it off” sense. i woke up and looked at my clock now and it says it’s 9 am. my first thoughts were: “that can’t be right! oh. wait. it sure is bright outside. i guess it really is 9 am.”

once you’re more than an hour late, it’s no longer “late” but an “unexcused absence”, so i called in to use my half of a sick day i have left. now i don’t need to be at work until noon. what am i going to do for 2 1/2 hours? now i’m afraid to even think of lying down until 11 am before getting ready for work at noon.

stupid dream police. i knew i shouldn’t have put those lyrics as my away message for sleeping…
