Walking in the morning dew
Sleepwalking through the earthquake drill

Listening to the birds as they take flight
Stopping the TV falling in the night

The ducks quack, one flies in the sky
Even though the ground shakes, I don't open my eyes

The dog leads the way, following the ground
Somehow I know what to do, even without light or sound

A fresh day is upon me
A night's sleep interrupted

Cold air, warm sun
Dizzy, so tired

Take a deep breath and welcome the new day
Close your eyes, back to sleep and let the memory go away
