Jesse's got a razor blade
I can't feel the hand that shaves my face
In a bad dream
These fine lines dissect my resting place

Jesse, better run now
I can't hear the sirens when I sleep
In a locked box
Wrapped up with the sticks and stones I keep

We're all chasing windmills
While you're dying in your sleep

Jesse's got a diary
I don't know the names of all my friends
In the back seat
These fine lines draw streets that never end

Jesse, what's the point of counting sheep?
We're all chasing windmills
While you're dying in your sleep

I can't feel the hand that shaves my face...
