Back to The Sleeping Sickness lyrics

Sleeping Sickness

And I awoke
Only to find my lungs were empty
And through the night, so it seems I'm not breathing
And now my dreams are not what they're meant to be

And I'm breaking down
And I think I am breaking down

And I'm afraid to sleep because what haunts me
Such as, living with the uncertainty
That I'll never find the words to say which would completely explain
Just how I'm breaking down

Some one come and some one come and
Save my life
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead but now it's like the night is taking sides
And all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
Could it be this misery will suffice?

I've become a simple souvenier of someones kill
Like the sea, I'm constantly changing to calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
Oh how I'm breaking down

Some one come and some one come and
Save my life
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead but now it's like the night is taking sides
And all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
Could it be this misery will suffice?
