Album: Losing A Whole Year (1999)

  • I'm on a train
    But there's no one at the helm
    And there's a demon in my brain
    Who starts to overwhelm, whelm whelm whelm whelm

    And there it goes, my last chance for peace
    You lay me down, but I get no release
    And I say I

    I try to keep awake, I try to swim beneath
    I try to keep awake but I
    I can feel this narcolepsy slide
    Into another nightmare

    And there's a demon in my head who starts to play
    A nightmare tape loop of what went wrong yesterday
    And I hold my breath 'till it's more than I can take
    And I close my eyes, I dream that I'm awake

    I try to keep awake, I try to keep awake
    I try to keep awake but I
    I can feel this narcolepsy slide
    Into another nightmare

    I read dead Russian authors, volumes at a time
    I write everything down except what's on my mind
    'Cause my greatest fear is that sucking sound
    And then I know that I'll never get back out

    And there's a bone in my hand that connects to a drink
    In a crowded room where the glasses clink
    And I'll buy you a beer and we'll drink it deep
    Because that keeps me from felling asleep

    I said how'd you like to be alone and drowning?
    How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
    How'd you like to be alone and drowning?
    How'd you like to be alone and drowning?

    Still I find this narcolepsy slide slide slides
    Into another nightmare

    Keep awake, keep awake, keep awake
    And I can feel this narcolepsy slide Writer/s: Kevin Cadogan, Stephan Jenkins
