lyrics

hej what are you going to do
you can only sharpen your mind
or your knives
will you go on lying here
and fuck with your brain
for the rest of your life
has this been a scream, has this been a voice
or are you paranoid

no sleep you can't get no sleep
can't get no sleep
cause you're scared and you're lonely
and tired of this night

is this a fly dying in the light
or is it someone lurking outside
your eyes are wide in spite of the night
you're going to sharpen your knives

no sleep I can't get no sleep can't get no sleep
cause I'm damned and I'm crazy
and tired of this life

no sleep I can't get no sleep can't get no sleep
is it only tonight

no sleep i can't get no sleep can't get no sleep
can you reach for the light
can you make it all go quiet
