I was asleep, I had a dream
In my dream I was asleep inside another dream
I dreamed it was a peaceful world
I was sharing my life with a beautiful girl
Then I woke up into my original dream
Where life is cold and short, I was alone it seemed
At 6am when my alarm clock beeps
I’m gonna hit the snooze button twice
Go back to double sleep
Go right back to double sleep

I was walking through a forest green
With spicy little mushrooms and animals I’d never seen
Flaming waterfalls and pretty birds
I was writing this song 
Without using real words
I made up my own language

My rapid eye movement has been corrupted
Ring ring the telephone the silence interrupted
I hate your guts man, you got the wrong number
Hanging up on you go right back to my double slumber

I’m wide awake now inside my dream
Eating my own fingers and swallowing my primal scream
Livin’ my life inside a hotel room
With a polka-dot pony drinking water from the craters on the moon
Drinkin’ water from the craters…

Me and my baby were driving up the coast when
Ding-dong the doorbell I guess it is the postman
I’m getting angry now, I’ve had my fill 
Oh I hope you are bringing me a brand new feather pillow

I was asleep, I had a dream
In my dream I was asleep inside another dream
I dreamed it was a peaceful world
I was sharing my life with a beautiful girl
Then I woke up into my original dream
Where life is cold and short, I was alone it seemed
At 6am when my alarm clock beeps
I’m gonna hit the snooze button twice
Go back to double sleep
Going back to double sleep
