Why Don’t You Sleep?

Strap my laces tight

I’m going to run away today

No release will make me right

I haven’t slept for eleven days

Help me

Help me

Help me 

(Help me)

why don’t you sleep, dear

why don’t you sleep, dear

nothing will happen ta you

you’re safe while you sleep, here

zombie boy on the road

better than a zombie in bed

i can’t ever do what i’m told

i’ll sleep when when i am dead

Help me

but you can’t help me

I’ll bet you can’t help me

why don’t you sleep, dear

why don’t you sleep, dear

nothing will happen ta you

you’re safe while you sleep, here

there’ll be no spiders to bite your tongue

there’ll be no viruses in your lungs

and the earthquake won’t pin you

so why don’t you sleep?

why don’t you sleep?

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

And darkness shows me the way….

why don’t you sleep, dear

why don’t you sleep, dear

nothing will happen ta you

you’re safe while you sleep, HERE

there’ll be no spiders to bite your tongue

there’ll be no viruses in your lungs

and the earthquake won’t pin you

so why can’t you sleep?

why don’t you sleep?
