Not Man

This song is by Ajalon and appears on the album This Good Place (2009).

Not Man is sleeping today
And he has no intensions of waking
Mother is yelling but he
Is immune to the sound she is making
It's another day
Like any other day

Not Man crawls out of bed
In his slow motion instant replay
Stumbling and stuttering down the hall
He's on his way
To another day
Like any other day

And he thinks of himself and nobody else
'Cause nobody else has ever been him
And no one in this world or any other
Can understand what he feels within
No one has ever known
No one, ever
No one has ever shown
No one, ever

Not Man is senseless and motionless
As he stares at his Cheerios
"I'm not hungry" he loudly
Announces and it's time to go
To another day
If only it was a better day

Not Man sits on the bus
And it carries him to his prison
People pushed in and packed in like
Pokemon cards - it isn't
A better day
It's just another day

(No one has ever known
No one, ever
No one has ever shown
No one, ever)

And he thinks of himself and nobody else
'Cause nobody else has ever been him
And no one in this world or any other
Can understand what he feels within

Teachers are teaching but no one is reaching
The boy who lives in his mind
As he day dreams his life like a video game
Unreal, unrehearsed, unconfined

One day he'll find a way to be free
One day the boredom will end
Suddenly teacher has popped his balloon
And reality crashes on him

Not Man is tired and cranky
And not in the mood for pleasantries
Don't bother making suggestions
He's oh so hard to please

Not Man is dazed and confused
He lives his life in limbo
He knows that there is something more
But it's lost beyond the window

And he thinks of himself and nobody else
'Cause nobody else has ever been him
And no one has ever known what it is like
To be waiting around for your life to begin

Not Man is waiting for a better day
Come on Come on better day
Not Man is hoping for a better day
Come on Come on better day
Not Man is praying for a better day
Come on Come on better day
Not Man is waiting for a better way
Come on Come on better day
