Composed for SpinTunes 12 Round 3.

lyrics

Sunrise slowly slakes the sleep
Dawn may soon be breaking
Drowning dreaming in water deep
Naught for Neptune; waking

Laying languid lost in thought
Adrift inside my bedroom
Did I dream this, or am I awake?
A moment of mazoom

Sweet Sleep, come to me
Lay down in this lagoon
Day blues, a ruse to run from
An ineffable moment of mazoom

Mazoom is where I lie in bed
Unsure of where I am
I wish I didn't have to wake
But I can't stay, I've got to scram

Lost in lazy reverie
Before the dawn of daybreak
Some dimensions we can't see
Feeling of mazoom

Sweet Sleep, come to me
Lay down in this lagoon
Day blues, a ruse to run from
An ineffable moment of mazoom
