British Sea Power – To Get To Sleep lyrics

Took a pill last night
Just to get to sleep
Put me on my back
Not on my feet
Propylene across your eyes
To take me to the land of sighs

Had a drink last night
Just to get to sleep
Put me on my back
Knocked me off my feet
Filled my skin with ethylnol
To find some peace, to let it fall

Eight hours a day - call it twenty years
There's a place you can go
Free of lust, cupidity and fear

Oh it left my heart broken
It took my breath away
A lesson open
A little more each day

A little eyesore
A little Nytol
A little heartache
A little soothe-all

Melatonin, a little dose
Takes things to a peaceful close
Commerce runs through your veins
And takes you from this waking plane
Industy on your side
To do what you do
When you get tired

Eight hours a day - call it twenty years
There's a place you can go
Free of lust, cupidity and fear

Oh it left my heart broken
It took my breath away
A little lesson open
A little more each day

A little eyesore
A little Nytol
A little heartache
A little soothe-all

A little eyesore
A little Nytol
A little heartache
A little soothe-all
