Slumber-rise

Looking in the mirror, how can I look like myself?
Could it be too late to collect myself?
If you just believe, oops I've said too much
I shut out the dark thoughts, and I run through the night
Looking at this mess, I think I messed it all up
Please explain the glory, it went over my head
Being onstage every night is my therapy
Where are your admiring stares during the taxi ride home?
 
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
And I feel pretty pale, though my cheeks still turn red
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
Even the sandman sells me more dreams these days
 
(what are you?)
(what are you?)
In my slumber-rise
(what are you?)
(what are you?)
In my slumber-rise
(what are you?)
(what are you?)
In my slumber-rise
(what are you?)
(what are you?)
 
The queue in the hall, where you wait for me
I ask if I can drink to calm my nerves
I don't want to be a star, I don't want to fade away
Your hopeful smiles, help me continue on
I'm between nightmares, and a waking dream
I need a stencil, I can't trace myself anymore
Look at my black pockets, how would you define me?
When I get home at night, that's when my day starts.
 
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
And I feel pretty pale, though my cheeks still turn red
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
Even the sandman sells me more dreams these days
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
And I feel pretty pale, though my cheeks still turn red
And I feel pretty bad, during my slumber-rise
Even the sandman sells me more dreams these days
 
I fall into Morpheus's arms, but he doesn't want more of me
It's true that I was hurt, but I am still here
If I overdid it, please forgive me
I chocked a lot, but I come back to fight
(What are you?)
 
Thanks!

Sommeil Levant is a play on words with "soleil levant" (sunrise), with, "sommeil" (sleep), taking the place of "soleil" (sun). I've translated it as "slumber-rise" here. Other translations could be "rising sleep", or "sleeping while up".
