"Sleeper" as written by Dan Keyes, Santiago Iii Vela, Ross Edward Tweedy and Robert Mcentire Mann....
I can beat this. make it smaller. make it smaller.
I can forget just as easy as anyone.
Fuckin' anyone.
If we get caught, gonna tell em it was all your fault.

Sleep more, lose time, keeps my mind from catching up.
Lie down if you can't stand, you can have my bed tonight.

I can beat this. make it smaller. make it smaller.
I can forget just as easy as anyone.
Fuckin' anyone.
If you give up, gonna know it's 'cause you sleep too much.

Sleep more, lose time, keeps my mind from catching up.
Lie down if you can't stand, you can have my bed tonight.

You go to sleep with me.
You wake me up.
I can't breathe. I can't do anything.
You've got me gagged and bound.
I can't breathe. I can't breathe.
Fuck yeah!

    General CommentFor some reason I get the impression this song is talking about sex. Like when he says "I can't beat this...make it smaller". It like hes saying that he has an erection and he wants a female to take care of this problem, rather than his hand. And then its like they have sex, and she wants to sleep over, but he feels crowded by her, and jsut wants her to go home.

    General Commentim pretty sure he says "you CAN have my bed tonight"
    heres what else is wrong:
    "im gunna tell 'em its was all your fault"
    "sleep more, lose time, keeps my mind from catching up"
    "im gunna know, its cause i sleep too much"

    and as ive said before on the other songs for this EP
    im pretty sure every song has a deeper drug meaning behind it.
    half relationship half drugs. heroine makes you sleepy. just so you know. also its slows your breathing down. so much sometimes that you stop breathing. and OD. fuck yeah.
