Insomniac

There’s a blackness creeping over me
Consumes my eyes, my brain, my heart, my feet
Doesn’t let me breathe
But the feathers are still open
I still see the darkness without light
Can’t sleep when I still have my sight
I bow down away from shutting eyes
Repeat to myself a pile of lies

I want to escape tomorrow
I can stop time, freeze the hour forever
Oh I’m scared of tomorrow
Let’s just stay in this moment together
Because I can’t breathe in the blackness
I like the suffocation, the claustrophobia
I live the insomnia.

There’s a coldness creeping over me
Consumes me, tasting dark and sweet
Takes on a new kind of heat
And I’m breaking records in my mind
Repeating words on constant time
I turn and try to ignore the cries
Repeat to myself a pile of lies

I want to escape tomorrow
I can stop time, freeze the hour forever
Oh I’m scared of tomorrow
Let’s just stay in this moment together
Because I can’t breathe in the blackness
I like the suffocation, the claustrophobia
I live the insomnia.

Replaying over memories
Conjuring harmless fantasies
Closing eyes and counting sheep
Following you
Jumping into the sea
Because it’s colder than me
Making tracks in the snow
Kicking up leaves

Lips like a heart attack
In the blackness
You’ll come running back
In the blackness
I’m an insomniac

Because I can’t breathe in the blackness
I like the suffocation, the claustrophobia
I live the insomnia.
