    Lyrics

    Receiving department, 3 am
    staff cuts have socked up the overage
    directives are posted.
    no callbacks, complaints.
    everywhere is calm.

    Hong Kong is present
    Taipei awakes
    all talk of circadian rhythm

    Chorus
    I see today with a newsprint fray
    my night is coloured headache grey
    daysleeper. daysleeper. daysleeper

    the bull and the bear are marking their territories
    they're leading the blind with their international glories

    I'm the screen, the blinding light
    Im the screen, I work at night.

    Chorus
    I see today with a newsprint fray
    my night is coloured headache grey
    don't wake me with so much
    daysleeper

    I cried the other night
    I can't even say why
    flourescent flat caffeine lights
    its furious balancing

    I'm the screen, the blinding light
    Im the screen, I work at night

    Chorus
    I see today with a newsprint fray
    my night is coloured headache grey
    don't wake me with so much

    The ocean machine is set to 9 I'll squeeze into heaven and valentine
    my bed is pulling me,
    gravity
    daysleeper. daysleeper.
    daysleeper. daysleeper. daysleeper.
