I only smoke weed when I need to
And I need to get some rest, yo, where’s the sex
I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress
Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty

And on the count of three I pull back the duvet
Make my way to the refrigerator
One dry potato inside, no lie
Not even bread, jam

When the light above my head went bam
I can’t sleep, something’s all over me
Greasy, insomnia please release me
And let me dream about making mad love on the heath

Tearing off tights with my teeth
But there’s no relief
I’m wide awake in my kitchen
It’s black and I’m lonely
Oh if I could only get some sleep
Creaky noises make my skin creep
I need to get some sleep
I can’t get no sleep

Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
Is when I search for the light
Pick up my pen and start to write
I struggle, fight dark forces
In the clear moon light

Without fear… insomnia

I can’t get no sleep

I used to worry, thought I was goin’ mad in a hurry
Gettin’ stress, makin’ excess mess in darkness
No electricity, something’s all over me, greasy
Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
Makin’ mad love to my girl on the heath
Tearin’ off tights with my teeth
But there’s no release, no peace
I toss and turn without cease
Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast

 

At least a couple of weeks
Since I last slept, kept takin’ sleepers
But now I keep myself pepped
Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
So when it’s back this insomniac take an original tack
Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack

 

I gets no sleep
I can’t get no sleepI can’t get no sleep
I can’t get no sleep
