lyrics

I've got a secret.
It's bleeding through my eyes.
I might just keep it.
It's part of my disguise.

I'm going down and down and down and down and down and down and deeper.
I never go to sleep but I try to be a dreamer.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
Please let me go to sleep.

Isn't this fun?
Look at how normal you are.
You've got your wife and you've got your good book and you've got your mediocre car.
I've got a scab inside my throat.
It expands each time I poke.
When will the world finally know my entire life is one big fucking inside joke

going down and down and down and down and down and down and deeper.
I never go to sleep but I try to be a dreamer.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
Please let me go to sleep.
Please let me go to sleep.
I want to go to sleep.
I want to go to sleep.

Isn't this fun?
Isn't this fun?
Isn't this fun?
Please tell me you're having fun.
You'd better be cuz I'm sure as hell not.

I'm going down and down and down and down and down and down and deeper.
I never go to sleep but I try to be a dreamer.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
I never go to sleep.
Please let me go to sleep.
Please let me go to sleep.
I want to go to sleep.
I want to go to sleep.
I try to go to sleep.
I've got to find a way to sleep.
I've got to find a way to sleep.
I swear I'll find a way to sleep.
