The Way You Fall Asleep is about those times in life when there seems to be so much going on around you, you stop recognising the person you see in the mirror.


All these places and people they just seem to change, I've been finding it hard to keep up with this pace. And I have been thinking 'bout moving away, but no matter how many times I pack up it just leaves me bearing a weight. And I've been calling your name out for what seems the tenth time in consecutive nights. I guess my subconscious wants to keep you in my life. It's not easy to see it but I know it took a while to tell; I'm not well. Woke up in a diner in Brooklyn, next to a sad and lonely man. I guess I just caught my reflection, don't even know who I am. When the way you fall asleep is through medicine, you kind of forget who you are. Drove me all the way to the airport, I didn't wanna get our the car. You talk a big game in the mirror but it's just a reflection of where you came from. You breathe, sleep, repeat and then struggle to eat. I'm so close to saying "I'm Done". And it's just like before; I'm rubbing my eyes 'til they're raw. My outline carved out on the floor. I'm getting bored. And I guess that's just life: constantly wondering why it's hard to get through the night? It's not alright but I'm getting by.
