“Ode To Sleep” Song Text

I wake up fine and dandy
But then by the time I find it handy,
To rip my heart apart
And start planning my crash landing,
I go up, up, up, up, up to the ceiling,
Then I feel my soul start leaving
Like an old man’s hair receding,
I’m pleading please
Oh please on my knees repeatedly asking,
Why it’s got to be like this
Is this living free,
I don’t want to be the one
Be the one who has
The sun’s blood on my hands,
I’ll tell the moon
Take this weapon forged in darkness,
Some see a pen, I see a harpoon.

I’ll stay awake,
‘Cause the dark’s
Not taking prisoners tonight.

Why am I not scared in the morning,
I don’t hear those voices calling,
I must have kicked them out
I must have kicked them out,
I swear I heard demons yelling,
Those crazy words they were spelling,
They told me I was gone
They told me I was gone.

But I’ll tell them,
Why won’t you let me go?
Do I threaten all your plans?
I’m insignificant.
Please tell them you have no plans for me.
I will set my soul on fire
what have I become?
I’ll tell them.

On the eve of a day that’s forgotten and fake,
And the trees they await and clouds anticipate,
The start of a day when we put on our face,
A mask that portrays that we don’t need grace,
On the eve of a day that is bigger than us,
But we open our eyes
‘Cause we’re told that we must,
And the trees wave their arms
And the clouds try to plead,
Desperately yelling there’s something we need,
I’m not free
I asked forgiveness three times,
Same amount that I denied
I three-time mvp’ed this crime,
I’m afraid to tell you who I adore
Won’t tell you who I’m singing towards,
Metaphorically I’m a whore
And that’s denial number four.

I’ll stay awake,
‘Cause the dark’s
Not taking prisoners tonight.

Why am I not scared in the morning,
I don’t hear those voices calling,
I must have kicked them out
I must have kicked them out,
I swear I heard demons yelling,
Those crazy words they were spelling,
They told me I was gone
They told me I was gone.

But I’ll tell them,
Why won’t you let me go?
Do I threaten all your plans?
I’m insignificant,
Please tell them
You have no plans for me,
I will set my soul on fire,
What have I become?
I’ll tell them
You have no plans for me,
I will set my soul on fire,
What have I become?
I’ll tell them,
I’ll tell them,
I’ll tell them,
I’ll tell them,

Please tell them
You have no plans for me,
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I’m sorry.
