"I'd Kill To Fall Asleep" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Eyes open, I'm wide awake
I feel I'm in a coma state
Just lay here on my back and watch the fan turn

Conversations cross my mind, but not that of the speaking kind
TV images repeat there one line

Back and forth I toss and turn
It feels like strings are holding up my eyes

I'd kill to fall asleep
I'd kill to fall asleep

I'm putting up a losing fight
I'll never see this end tonight
The thought of just one dream it consumes me

Numbers on the clock turn back, my pills are having no effect
The beating of my heart keeps the time going

Back and forth I toss and turn
It feels like strings are holding up my eyes

I'd kill to fall asleep
I'd kill to fall asleep

They say that when you sleep your body's at rest
I wouldn't know what sleep felt like if I tried my best
If Polaroids and memories can fade away, so can I

Back and forth I toss and turn
It feels like strings are holding up my eyes

I'd kill to fall asleep
I'd kill to fall asleep

I'd kill to fall asleep
I'd kill to fall asleep

I'd kill

    General Commentdefinitely sounds nothing like the typed lyrics.

    i hear "tv images" not "tiki images" and it sounds like "back and forth, i toss and turn, and it feels like, strings are holding up my eyes", not what you have.

    General CommentThis song is awesome, I think everyones gone through somethings like this at some point. trying to sleep but just can't.

    the 'back and forth, i toss and turn.it feels like.... strings are holding up my eeeeyyeesss...' sounds so good.

    A totally different topic for NFG and the lyrics capture the emotion of not being able to fall asleep perfectly, the frustration (fast parts), the submission (the slow parts). .... how can you think this is the worst song on the album? Jordan prolonged scream at the end of the song sounds cool too... should do it more often :P

    General CommentI have mixed feelings about this song, I find myself skipping this one a lot for some reason. I think the main thing I have against it is like this whole song could be like a verse to another song, cause it's just talking about sleep, but it doesn't explain anything about why he can't fall asleep or what he's thinking. Like Jordan, can you not sleep because of a girl, or did you just drink too many mt. dews or what, give us so insight if you're gonna write a song about it. It's just kind of a dull song, it's ok, but not even close to the best on the cd.
