On Autopilot


Get up, get ready, go to work
Talk, smile, read, smile, lunch, smile, go
Drink, skate, cycle, faster, now slow…
Play, purr, cook, eat, get ready, home
Sleep, hope not to dream, alarm clock goes off

Then the weekend, time for free
Drink, drink, laugh and sing
Sleep, hope not to dream
Clean, hide, hide, hide, cry
Sleep, hope not to dream, alarm clock that rings

And then it all starts all over again.
Will it be like this forever?
Hoping soon life will speed up its pace
