Lyrics
i awakened this morning
glad to be me
glad to be male
glad to be in my own skin again

i awoke last night somehow
in the wrong body
in the wrong house
in the wrong life

my arms were different
lighter somehow
as i pulled off the blanket
and swung out my legs

my hips moved
in a disorienting way
as i got out of bed
and tried to stand up

i stumbled to the bathroom
the wrong way down the hall
i found the toilet
in the wrong place

i pulled down my shorts and...
it was gone, it was missing
in my stupor i turned and sat
and started pissing

but it sounded wrong
and then i noticed
under my shirt
two unfamiliar weights

my heart began pounding
my face felt hot
my arms felt cold with sweat
i was in the wrong body

i looked out the window :
out at some city
out of kilter
out of my realm

why is this happening?
where are my children?
where is my grandson?
where is my wife?

have i been dreaming
all this time?
is it all an illusion
all that i'm?

i went back to sleep
my head on an unfamiliar pillow
tossed and turned
and faded away

i awakened this morning
glad to be me
glad to be male
glad to be in my own skin again

I have often wondered...
...what if life was a dream and my real life was very different? This struck a chord with me. I liked the swelling synths in this as well. As a side note, when you say "It was gone... missing..." I thought of the Detachable Penis song by King Missle! Ha ha...

Disorienting.
I've had a few half asleep nightmares: Walking around in a different house. A person changing from one identity to another. The worst moments are when you think you're awake but you're not or when you wake up yelling or doing something weird like making a sound with your lips or twisting your covers. I have memories of events that may never have happened. Very evocative, Bill. Thanks.

Yin & Yang.... interesting.... : )
So.... a dream state glimpse into an alternate reality timeline? ... or one of those strange and uncomfortable moments of clarity; some brief epiphany of empathy for the opposite half of the Yin & Yang whole 'we are made in God's image' ~ male & female/man & woman/the perfect balance of logic/reason & empathy/nurture ( at our best ~ unconditional love ~ we compliment each other and work together in harmony .... and at our worst ~ ego/free will ~ our blinders choose to see only our differences not the similarities of our oneness .... But, I will admit that it would be more expedient and convenient to be able to pull off to the side of the road rather than hope there is a clean restroom up at the next exit ... and it would be kinda cool to be able to write my name in the snow just for kicks ... but other than that .... LOL
