lyrics

(1)
Sleeper won't you hide away your sheets?
Don't you know, you're one of us today.
Grab your dirty linens, brush your teeth.
Don't take it slow. You're one of us today.

(2)
Lover, you are nowhere to be found.
Your voice is forgotten in the ground.
I'll just take a moment, you'll be found.
You'll be found.

(1)
Sleeper hide your slumber, hide your dreams.
Don't you know, they're no good for you today?
Fairytales and fables, lullabies, lulling lies
won't make your life okay.

(2)
Just trying to get on by.
I want off, I want off, I want off this ride.
Yeah, let's get imbibed,
drown our sorrows down in forties down by the riverside.
All I want is to lie to myself.
You won't let me sleep.
You won't let me
keep on believing my safety's inside of these sheets.
These storybook impossibilities,
I'll stop at nothing till they creep
through every moment in my memory.
All I want is to sleep.
All I want is to sleep.
All I want is to sleep.

(1)
Sleeper won't you hide away your sheets?
Don't you know, you're one of us today.
Grab your dirty linens, brush your teeth.
Don't take it slow. You're one of us today.
One of us today.
