I'm on a train, but there's no one at the helm
And there's a demon in my brain, who starts to overwhelm

And there it goes, my last chance for peace
You lay me down, but I get no release, and I say I
"I try to keep awake, I try to swim beneath, I try to keep awake
But I, I can feel this narcolepsy slide"
Into another nightmare

And there's a demon in my head who starts to play
A nightmare tape loop of what went wrong yesterday
And I hold my breath 'till it's more than I can take
And I close my eyes, I dream that I'm awake

I try to keep awake
I try to keep awake
I try to keep awake, but I
I can feel this narcolepsy slide
Into another nightmare

I read dead Russian authors, volumes at a time
I write everything down except what's on my mind
'Cause my greatest fear is the sucking sound
And then I know I'll never get back out

And there's a bone in my hand that connects to a drink
In a crowded room where the glasses clink
And I'll buy you a beer and we'll drink it deep
Because that keeps me from falling asleep, I said
How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
Still I find this narcolepsy slide, slide
Into another nightmare

Keep awake, keep awake, keep awake
And I can fell this narcolepsy slide
Woo
