lyrics

This one’s for the lonely
For the weathered, the unrested
Though they're patient, they're complacent
Growing ancient by the mass

This morning is for sleeping
And any day left of the weekend
But it's gonna come back to bite you
Fair warning to prepare

And the morning is for sleeping
Through the sun, the light, and the beeping
And the lonely start to creep in
You awake, you’re suddenly weeping

This one’s for the cheerful
For the smilers, early risers
Though they're restless, they're relentless
Growing older just the same

And they taunt you and confuse you
With monotony and illusion
You’re a junky, you’re a bad seed
Look to God for restitution

And the morning is for sleeping
Through the sun, the light, and the beeping
And the lonely start to creep in
You awake, you’re suddenly weeping

And you're mourning and you're screaming
In your mind you're steadily grieving
And the romance you believed in
Left a scar, a burden and demon

This one’s for the lonely
Waiting for your one and only
For the last dance or the right chance
Until romance isn’t real

And the morning is for sleeping
Through the sun, the light, and the beeping
And the lonely start to creep in
You awake, you’re suddenly weeping

And you're mourning and you're screaming
In your mind you're steadily grieving
And the romance you believed in
Left a scar, a burden and demon
