Sleeping While a Wall

Putting up my hands, I don’t want that.

Don’t involve me in that mess,

I’m leaving now, I said.

Safe alone in my home, my room, my

Bed. I’m sleeping while a wall.

I have no idea, no opinion about

Your troubles. I cannot help you.

Sleeping while a wall.

I’m just a simple man,

Small mind, even smaller heart.

I don’t care about those things

Going on around me.

I’m sleeping while a wall.
