SLEEPY DUST

SLEEPY DUST - Richard Sutton
00:00 / 00:00

The more sleep I get, the more dozy my head

I’m dreaming my life away

Like a drug, it pulls me apart

And it's here to stay

The more sleep I get, the more deeper I'm led

Into this curse, that keeps me in bed

It hunts me at night

It drains me all day

I’ve got to wipe, my sleepy dust away

 

When it seems, I’ve found the cure

And the evil is slain

I've let my guard down, I’ve opened the gates

And now it's back again

It's back again

It's back again

It's back again

My eyelids peel apart

My body feels sore

Just lying here, I do not move

Not until I fall

Fall into this sickly state

and can't take anymore

I move, but I’m still not awake,

I just fall to the floor

      

The more sleep I get, the more dozy my head

I’m dreaming my life away

Like a drug, it pulls me apart

And it's here to stay

The more sleep I get, the more deeper I'm led

Into this curse, that keeps me in bed

It hunts me at night

It drains me all day

I’ve got to wipe, my sleepy dust away

All day I’m in a hazy dream

I can’t focus my mind

I try to express my thoughts

But fail every time

There's no point, in living this way

I’ve got to break these chains

And kill that incessant plague

That’s pumping through my veins
