Can't

I find I simply can't get out of bed.
I shiver and procrastinate and stare.
I'll press the reset button in my head.

I hate my work but I am in the red.
I'd quit it all if I could live on air.
I find I simply can't get out of bed.

My joints have rusted and my brain is lead.
I drank too much last night, but now I swear
I'll press the reset button in my head.

My love has gone. What do I have instead? -
Hot-water bottle, God and teddy bear.
I find I simply can't get out of bed.

The dreams I dreamt have filled my soul with dread.
The world is mad, there's darkness everywhere.
I'll press the reset button in my head.

Who'll kiss my tears away or earn my bread?
Who'll reach the clothes hung on that distant chair?
I must, I simply must get out of bed
And press that reset button in my head.
