A song about my recent battle with something like insomnia, however it was by choice that I didn't sleep.

-Verse 1-

Trying to fall asleep

But I'm too busy counting sheep

Wars raging in my head

Now all the sheep are dead

My mind is racing now

I'd breathe if I knew how

I really don't know why

I sleep when I'd rather die


I'm not an insomniac

I'm capable of sleeping

I'm not an insomniac

When I do sleep I see things

I'm not an insomniac

I know my dreams have meaning

I'm not an insomniac

I'm just afraid of dreaming

-Verse 2-

Sleep creeps in with stealth

A gift from Satan himself

I wake to throbbing pain

Ice pumping through my veins

I analyse my dreams

Can't figure out what they mean

But just two weeks ahead

Came fires that left a friend dead


My weary eyes, I force them open

I fear what I'll see if I dare to close them

More than a nightmare

Life, death or warfare

Whatever I dream will be

No control over what I will see


-Final Chorus-

I'm not an insomniac

I witness death whilst sleeping

I'm not an insomniac

I always wake up screaming

I'm not an insomniac

I'm not a maniac

I'm not an Insomniac

I'm just afraid of dreaming
