That damned fly I told you about
Is keeping me up again
I'm tired as shit
Everyday at my job
Because his buzzing keeps me from dreaming.

And I can never get any rest
I can never get any rest
I can never get any rest

Sure I'll have another drink with you
Though I'm already drunk as a bottle
It's that fly that's making me drink
So I'll pass out
And sleep through his screaming

And I can never get any rest
I can never get any rest
I will never get any rest

Back in that room
That's not mine anymore
It's possessed by the drone of a monster
Goddamned fly I told you about
The moon shines on his wings
And they're gleaming

And I can never get any rest
I can never get any rest
I can never get any rest
Etc...
