Sleep Well Beast

Album: Sleep Well Beast (2017)
  • We've been stuck out here in the hallway for way way too long
    I'm at a loss, I'm at a loss
    I'm losing grip, the fabric's ripped
    Go back to sleep, let me drive, let me think, let me figure it out
    How to get us back to the place where we were when we first went out

    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left
    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left

    Losing parents, losing sense
    I don't know what we should do
    Became a father when I was still a son, she brings it out in you
    See you at the end of the party with your wild white eyes
    Filling up the teacup with gin in your secret postcard life

    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left
    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left
    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left
    I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left

    We leave our saviors wrapped around the necks of new machines
    Or at the ends of threads that hold their bodies to the ground
    And then the men who look a little like they felt like me
    Offered them some bottled water, then they cut them down
    I came back to see if you were here, but everything was different
    Your voice was low, you blended in, I could barely hear you speak
    You were always my last second bright spot in the distance
    Thought that you were something good that I would always keep

    I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast
    I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast
    I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast
    I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast Writer/s: Aaron Dessner, Matthew D. Berninger
