  • Close your eyes
    Let your mind submerge
    Are you ready?
    3, 2, 1

    I feel a glitch in the cortex
    Like a ghost in the shell
    Caught the devil playing mind tricks
    I feel the dread close in like the walls of a cell

    I cannot sleep
    I cannot hide
    I cannot take
    One more night on the dark side of my mind
    I close my eyes to sleep, the shadows speak
    And they won't stop when I'm awake

    Everything they say would seem
    Feeds the fear inside of me
    Let it feed the fear inside
    Help me take this pain away
    Sleep is now my enemy
    Now it feeds the fear inside of me

    The fear inside of me

    The fear hit like a shell shock
    Body froze like my heart stopped
    REM waves got my limbs locked down but my eyes wide open
    Sheer terror manifest before me

    I cannot sleep
    I cannot hide
    I cannot take
    Living this way on the dark side of my mind
    I close my eyes to sleep, the shadows speak
    And they won't stop when I'm awake
    Everything they say would seem
    Feeds the fear inside of me
    Let it feed the fear inside
    Help me take this pain away
    Sleep is now my enemy
    Now it feeds the fear inside of me

    I close my eyes to sleep (Sleep paralysis)
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me out
    Let me the fuck out

    Let me the fuck out

    Everything they say would seem
    Feeds the fear inside of me
    Let it feed the fear inside
    Help me take this pain away
    Sleep is now my enemy
    Now it feeds the fear inside of me
    It's the fear inside of me

    I cannot sleep
    I cannot hide
    I cannot take
    One more night on the dark side of my mind
