Stars and a staring contest

Lyrics: 

I'm having a staring contest with myself
A spitting image but with cracks in it
Can't seem to win, can't play it off with wit
'Cause in the end, I'm still me, I'll admit

I want to work on it
But I'm afraid to commit
Still think I'm better than the others
Guess I'm just a hypocrite

At least I'm self aware, it's a good thing, am I right?
If I was food i'd be bland, no spice and bite
Stuff I can only come up with during midnight
My notebook illuminated by the moonlight

I feel the stars looking down on me
Can't seem to sleep and pour myself a cup of tea
I feel the stars looking down on me
Can't seem to sleep and pour myself a cup of tea
I feel the stars looking down on me
Go outside for a smoke, they're truly a sight to see
I feel the stars looking down on me
Go outside for a smoke, they're truly a sight to see

They are truly a sight to see
They are truly a sight to see
They are truly a sight to see
They are truly a sight to see

You capture the angst and beauty of insomnia well. That time of insight and inspiration and some frustration. Perfect start for the 90 day journey we are on.

Fine lyrics! The repetition underlines the impatientness of such a state.

Love the image the lyrics evoke! The phrase "A spitting image but with cracks in it" made me picture an old shack, with a broken mirror.

love your double chorus, found myself wanting more verses after it though, to go to that place of minor insanity, when after several nights of no/poor sleep the logic starts to unravel. either way, a strong start to 5090 2019
