lyrics

S L E E P P A R A L Y S I S

I DONT RECALL HOW I CAME TO BE HERE
A SKINNY OLD DOG IN A JUNK YARD
HOISTED ON HIS OWN PETARD
SCOURING THE SKY FOR A CHOIR OF ANGELS
A CASUALTY OF AMBITION
PRINCE OF A NON-KINGDOM

I TALK AND TOW THE LINE WHILE TRYING TO HIDE
MY DISAPPOINTMENT
IF ONLY I DIDN'T HAVE TO THINK

PANIC ATTACKS AND SLEEP PARALYSIS
I SHOOK THE HAND OF A PARAMEDIC
CRAWLING OUT OF ANOTHER FIT
THE SIMPLEST THINGS ARE NOW PROBLEMATIC
I CHOKE ON BOTH WORDS AND SILENCE
REPENTING MY PENITENCE

A SEIZURE IN THE DAY AND A NIGHT
FULL OF NIGHTMARES
YOU JUST GET SO SICK OF THE NOISE OF YOUR HEAD

MY WINGS OF ICARUS WERE TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
AND THOUGH I'M DONE, I'LL KEEP ON DRAGGING MYSELF AROUND

FALLING FROM THE SKY, I SHUT MY EYES
HALLUCINATING
ITS ALL JUST ANOTHER ONE OF MY DREAMS
