Wake up rattled from another sleepless night
Stuck in between miracles and traffic lights
Work like the devil, but you’re never satisfied

You set your pace likes it’s required
And feel completely uninspired

Don’t let your well run dry
Keep it filled up

Here it comes again, another week gone by
Like a train almost out of sight
You try to catch it, but you always fall behind

You feel your race has run its course
But you still live in remorse

Don’t let your well run dry
Keep it filled up

I can see that you’re running on empty
I can see that your heart is tired
There’s no use in flying solo

Caught in a stampede of lies
Pounded in the ground like railroad ties
Trying so hard that your engine’s fried
Lay down and rest tonight

Don’t let your well run dry
Keep it filled up
