Slumber                                            From the album: Stranger Than Fiction        Written by: Greg Graffin

So, you're feeling unimportant
'Cuz you've got nothing to say
And you're life is just a ramble
No one understands you anyway

Well, I've got a piece of news son
That might make you change your mind
Your life is historically meaningful
And spans a significant time

SLUMBER WILL COME SOON
AND YOU'RE HELPING PUT IT TO SLEEP
SIDE BY SIDE WE DO OUR SHARE
FAITHFULLY ASSURING THAT
SLUMBER WILL COME SOON

Well, now you feel a little better? Lift up
your head and walk away
Knowing we're all in this together
For such a short time anyway

There is just no time to parade around
sulking, I would rather laugh than cry
The rich, the poor, the strong, the weak, we share
this place together
And we pitch in to help it die

I'm not good at giving morals, and I don't fear the consequence
If life makes you scared and bitter, at least
its not for very long

SLUMBER WILL COME SOON
