Morning Light

This song is by John Popper and appears on the album The John Popper Project (Feat. DJ Logic) (2003).

The thick and smoky night
Abounds around us
Up to the same old game
To tame the aching beast without

There's nothing we can't do or take
Our appetite astounds us
Dawn, the only clock I rock
Until I tremble and pass out

And through the morning reverie
We slip away and go to sleep
But I lay restless and awake
Fearful only of the chance I didn't take

The comedy, I don't regret
But instead forget to mention
A thousand times of taste and touch
Slightly slated not to be

Mean to make a mockery
I imply my apt intention
The devil in the details wails
For one day want of breaking free

And through the morning reverie
We slip away and go to sleep
But I lay restless and awake
Fearful only of the chance I didn't take

All fires rage with the sun going down
The ashes fall by morning
Landing safely on the ground

All fires rage with the sun going down
The ashes fall by morning
Landing safely on the ground

Make no mistake, I mean to take
Every chance that comes my way
By every turn, I've left to burn
Still another will be sought

By that thing that rings the tuning fork
For the force of night and day
The sun shines as I slumber
To earn the evening I have wrought

And through the morning reverie
We slip away and go to sleep
But I lay restless and awake
Fearful only of the chance I didn't take
And through the morning reverie
We slip away, slip away
