I don’t wanna fall asleep,

Cause the nightmares keep haunting me.

Crystal clear, so they can’t be ignored,

My mind’s turned me into a detainee.

 

Haven’t got eight hours in a fortnight,

I’m lucky if I even sleep at all.

Can’t stay awake on the freeway,

Driving like my blood’s turned to alcohol.

 

This shit is way too fuckin’ ridiculous,

Waking up multiple times every night.

Swallow a whole bottle of Melatonin,

But that just gives them a stronger bite.

 

Heart beats faster than a Bugatti,

Jolted awake faster than a lightning strike.

Sweating buckets like it's mid July,

Blood pressure suddenly spikes.

 

Nightmares keep replying in 4k resolution,

Crystal clear everytime I close my eyes.

Can’t even describe the shit that goes on,

Daytime distressed because I’m traumatized.

 

On the path to become nyctophobic,

Anxiety rises as the sun sets.

Need to keep all the fuckin’ lights on,

Binge drinking just to forget.

 

Need to keep all the lights on,

Cause nightmares keep haunting me.

I don’t wanna sleep, I don’t wanna sleep,

Crystal clear everytime I close my eyes.
