Set It Off – I'll Sleep When I'm Dead lyrics

It's the same, each and every night
Glare at my screen with two big bloodshot eyes
I'm stuck self torturing

My meds are failing me
Internal clock in smithereens
Can't fix this, I'm hopeless

My eyes
are stapled opened wide
As I lay down on my side
I am bouncing off these walls

Notice my hands begin to twitch
Unprovoked assaulting of my conscious wit
Me and the tv are enemies
Sickening static surrounds my mind
I'm losing time and realizing that
After days of thought

I'm stuck self torturing
My meds are failing me
Internal clock in smithereens
Can't fix this, I'm hopeless

My eyes are stapled opened wide
As I lay down on my side
I am bouncing off these walls

As I focus on the clock, try to feel but I can not
I should strap myself in bed
I guess I'll sleep when I am dead

Talk to myself,
Lie in the darkness so content
As the Sun begins to rise
I can barely shut my eyes
This crazed delirious mess
Laughing at everything I see
My sanity is spent
Just tell me where my time went
I'm losing it

Attention:
All insomniacs please raise your right hand
And kindly repeat after me
I guess I'll sleep when I am dead

Cause I'm stuck self torturing
My meds are
failing me
Internal clock in smithereens
Can't fix this, I'm hopeless

My
eyes are stapled owened wide
As I lay down
on my side
I am bouncing off these walls

As I focus on the clock, try to feel but I can not
I should strap myself in bed
I guess I'll sleep when I am dead
I guess I'll
sleep when I am
