This is about coping in a "bad" way with insomnia
-As I lay in my bed
I feel so awake
Something seems to rush in
Followed by a need to escape
-My body's tired and hurt
A long 12 hours spent at work
But my mind's keeping me awake
So I'm staying alert
-I need to calm and need to sleep
These chances don't come that frequently for me
-So because I can't and because I won't
I'll take this handful of pills and toss 'em down my throat
