i keep writing songs in my sleep. either that or in my dreams i am simply singing to myself songs that i have heard while awake. i can't tell because i forget them when i wake up even though while dreaming them i say to myself you are dreaming this and must remember it when you wake up.

doubtless those songs that sound so great in my dreams are utter crap just like those ideas you get while on the edge of sleep which sound so brilliant to your half-awake brain but reveal themselves to be really stupid upon waking fully.

all i know is that the last two songs i dreamed up each had a simple two-note bass part and gave the sleeping me chills. which probably only indicates how ridiculous they really have been but i will never know because i can't remember them in the morning.

the one lyric i haven't lost in the daylight goes "turpentine turpentine turpentine lady." i haven't a clue what it means.
