I Slip Away

I wake up feeling fine
I've got absolutely nothing on my mind
I brush my teeth, I wash my face
Everything seems to be in the proper place

I go to work, I don't do too much
Maybe I should refer to it as such
But I get paid, I get paid a lot
I can hardly count the money that I got

And even though I seem to be okay
Every night I slip further away
From me, I slip away

I go home, I call you up
And you talk and talk and I don't interrupt
Until your voice fades in my ears
And I realize that I'm not even here

I'm looking down on myself
I can see the dirty dishes on the shelf
I float away across the lawn
I wave goodbye to myself, then I'm gone
