In the darkness of the well of night
You drift away and dream
Depending on that dream in that picture frame
It may well be an uneasy sleep, it may well cause you fright
You may well wake up, startled by your scream
Those faces that once seemed real,
disappeared back from whence they came.
Caffeine it is said may well be the root cause of this
Experts say not to highlight this of them would be remiss
Yet will it stop you in your tracks, what more might it disclose
Who knows what an alternate substance just might well expose?
So whatever is your poison before you lay your head
Enjoy that little tipple before retiring in your bed.
