Now I lay me down not to sleep
I just get tangled in the sheets
I swim in sweat three inches deep
Just lay back and claim defeat

Chapter read and lesson learned
I turned the lights off while she burned
So while shes three hundred degrees
I throw the sheets off and I freeze

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
That I wont sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

My hands are locked up tight in fists
My mind is racing filled with lists
Of things to do and things Ive done
Another sleepless nights begun

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
That I wont sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

So much joy in life
So many pleasures all around
But the pleasure of insomnia
Is one Ive never found
With all life has to offer
Theres so much to be enjoyed
But the pleasures of insomnia
Are ones I cant avoid

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
That I wont sleep
I countdown, I look around
(Hala hala hala)

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war

Who needs sleep?
(Well youre never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep?
(Tell me whats that for)
Who needs sleep?
Be happy with what youre getting
Theres a guy whos been awake
Since the second world war
