Do you ever have nights where, whatever you do, sleep eludes you. I have them all the time.

Insomnia.

Night time, tired time
It's time to sleep
But instead
Awake I keep.

Eyes are heavy
My brain is dead
My legs are like
Two lumps of lead.

But mind is racing
Thoughts won't stop
They're raging on
Until I pop.

So now I stare
Up into space
It seems that sleep
I cannot face.

Don't want to chance
Another dream
Where thing are never
What they seem.

Discombobulation
Is what they bring
Don't know where I am
Don't know a thing.

So nights and nights
I lie awake
I say it's for
My sanity's sake.

But lack of sleep
Will make me mad
I know the feeling
And it is bad.

A sleeping pill,
Now that's the cure
It'll knock me out
That's for sure.

It doesn't work
I'm still awake
Let me sleeping
For madness sake!
