Wet Dream

I fell asleep in the road last night
I heard all of the voices at once
I had nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
My attention turned to the front

I managed back to the living room floor
just barely made it inside
My hands were black from the fresh blacktop road
My arms lay limp at my side

But I woke up to the sound
of my front door falling down
If I looked up what would I see?
My other self looking back at me

I ask myself, what can I do?
I dream of it every night
I cry for help in the vacuum of you
No one sees the sign

Then I woke up and looked around
Don't make one move, not a bloody sound
I told myself: get on your knees, cuz you can help if you just believe

Just look at it backwards and upside down
and turn it around and inside out
I see what you came for, now don't back down
Just listen to me in the wake of the ground

Then I woke up, my hands were bound
My other self was still around
I can't look up or I will see
inside myself to the inner me.
