Example No Sleep for the Wicked Lyrics

Verse 1:

It's worse by the day now, every time I lay down
Words come alive in my head and they play loud
It's like they cant find a way out
Wanna pull the plug on their party, its starting
To worry me, cant get to sleep when I wanna do
Everywhere you went from the street to the bed
And repeated through the night everything you said
Tried so many things, pen and a pad
By the side of my bed but its sending me mad
Every time I recline, I decline to opine
But there's always a rhyme at the back of my mind
Tried sippin on bottles of wine when I dine,
So sleep I can find when its time for bedtime
Rest my head fine, but its just no use
These words in my head now they forming queues
I reckon, Its worse than bein heckled
Right now my brains just a broken record
Sleep diminishes, when I start a song
And my mind wont stop cos I always gotta finish it
And when that songs done through to the end
The same track starts all over again
Its like my mind cant function, needs words to munch on
Came to a junction where traffic don't stop


Counting sheep and they never ever go
Losing sleep cos the words just flow
Sounds in my head like a radio
Lay awake all night, no sleep for the wicked
Seems like the verse has become my foe
At war in my head and he don't wanna go
Til ive laid him to rest in the studio
Stay awake all night, no sleep for the wicked

Verse 2:

There aint nothing that's appealing looking at the ceiling
Your eyes wide open wishing you were dreaming
(dreaming) And still the words keep streaming
Its only ever stops when I put em to rest
Then ive shooken the stress, no less
Plus ive tooken the best take lets say I ever coulda taken
Lost weeks of sleep so I had to be patient
You could be forsaken for thinking im mental
I let it all out in the vocal booth,
Syllables putting em to soulful use
Released from within this aint a joke its truth
Once I put em in a song, they can never bother me
What the hell is wrong with me, I didn't choose it
Absurd, why I gotta lock these words in the music
Some would say im blessed with a talent and yes
But only when im dead will they give it a rest



Tell me what's the reason I'm still fighting demons
I'm asking what is their significance
Tell me what's the reason I'm still fighting demons
I'm pleading, I only wanna get some sleep

(Chorus x2)
