Insomnia

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, I, I can’t sleep, I, I, 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
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, oh
(Insomnia)
Somebody turn out the lights

Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia
