"back into this institution
My way to retribution I
Im putting off this medication, promise I can sleep
Cause i can't ever sleep at night again
This medication takes over, takes over every day.
Please help
As I focus my eyes on the ceiling
What did I say?
Well did I say too much, sister to sleep?
I’ll fall awake at night, and I’ll never go to bed.
As I’m sleep walking back into this hell
Since you will always listen, I’m falling again
Stop wasting time on me, cause I’ll just do it again
Back into this institute where (words)
I’ve got to go
For one last time , I kiss your lips again
What do I say?
Well did I say too much, Sister to Sleep?
I’ll fall awake at night, and I’ll never go to sleep
I will take this ferris wheel
And I’m sleep walking right into this hell.
Oh I’m sorry
For the first time
Don’t let me sleep tonight
Keep me awake tonight
Don’t let me sleep tonight
Keep me awake
Well did I say too much, Sister To Sleep
I’ll never go to sleep
And I wont go back to bed
I come closer to your ledge
And I’m sleep walking right into this

    you do realise that "Sister to sleep" and "Sleep" are two different songs right? Sister to Sleep is about Freddy Kruger and a condition where you can go to sleep because your afraid to die well something like that. Sister to sleep was never put onto a album and Sleep is on the black parade. These are the lyrics to Sleep
