Dave Mustaine

I'm running in quicksand
Something's haunting me
The guilty past I've buried
My mind won't let me sleep

I'll do anything for peace - I keep waking up
A solemn oath I make
Cross my heart please let me sleep - I keep waking up
How much more do I take

My head is talking to me
I don't know what it needs
But the loudest voice
Is the one I heed

Insomnia, my swollen bloodshot eyes
Insomnia, awake till morning light
Insomnia, stirring deep inside
Insomnia, somebody turn out the lights
I can't sleep - insomnia

I'm twisting and turning - I keep waking up
The madness I must tame
My candle is burning - I keep waking up
Both ends again today

The whole house is creaking
I know they're out there
The things kept from sight
I beg to the shadows
I can't sleep

Insomnia, footsteps on the walk
Insomnia, I hear someone knock
Insomnia, I wish it was a dream
Insomnia, can you hear me scream

(i can't sleep)

Insomnia, my swollen bloodshot eyes
Insomnia, awake till morning light
Insomnia, stirring deep inside
Insomnia, somebody turn out the lights

(Insomnia)***
(I can't sleep)***
