WHO NEEDS SLEEP?

 

Now I lay me down not to sleep

I just get tangled in the sheets

I swim in sweat three inches deep

I just lay back and claim defeat

 

Chapter read and lesson learned

I turned the lights off while she burned

So while she's three hundred degrees

I throw the sheets off and I freeze

 

Lids down, I count sheep

I count heartbeats

The only thing that counts is

that I won't sleep

I countdown, I look around

 

Who needs sleep?

well you're never gonna get it

Who needs sleep?

tell me what's that for

Who needs sleep?

be happy with what you're getting

There's a guy who's been awake

since the Second World War

 

My hands are locked up tight in fists

My mind is racing, filled with lists

of things to do and things I've done

Another sleepless night's begun

 

Lids down, I count sheep

I count heartbeats

The only thing that counts is

that I won't sleep

I countdown, I look around

 

Who needs sleep?

well you're never gonna get it

Who needs sleep?

tell me what's that for

Who needs sleep?

be happy with what you're getting

There's a guy who's been awake

since the Second World War

 

There's so much joy in life,

so many pleasures all around

But the pleasure of insomnia

is one I've never found

With all life has to offer,

there's so much to be enjoyed

But the pleasures of insomnia

are ones I can't avoid
