The routine of life

I get dizzy in the day
Nights are worse
Am I man or myth?
Robots are built to follow trends
I lie not straight but sideways

I am what I am,
But I am not much,
The heating's turned off,
And the bag on my head, is dancing

My alarm clock rings,
Not twice, but four,
A lack of tolerance shows true weakness,
Orange light breaks the curtain

“Good morning” I hear you say
“Good bye”
