Sleeping is giving in,
No matter what the time is.
Sleeping is giving in,
So lift those heavy eyelids.

People say that you'll die
Faster than without water.
But we know it's just a lie,
Scare your son, scare your daughter.

People say that your dreams
Are the only things that save ya.
Come on baby in our dreams,
We can live our misbehavior.

Every time you close your eyes
Lies, Lies!

People try and hide the night
Underneath the covers.
People try and hide the light
Underneath the covers.

Come on hide your lovers
Underneath the covers,
Come on hide your lovers
Underneath the covers.

Hidin' from your brothers
Underneath the covers,
Come on hide your lovers
Underneath the covers.

People say that you'll die
Faster than without water,
But we know it's just a lie,
Scare your son, scare your daughter,

Scare your son, scare your daughter.

Now here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies!)
Now here's the moon, it's alright! (Lies!)
Now here's the sun, it's alright! (Lies!)
Now here's the moon it's alright (Lies!)

But every time you close your eyes. (Lies!)
