Back into this institution
My way to retribution
I’m putting off this medication, promise I can sleep
‘Cause I can't ever sleep at night the same
This medication takes over, takes over every day

(?)…Please help…(?)
As I close my eyes
I see land

What did I say?
Well did I say too much, Sister to Sleep?
I’ll fall awake at night
And I’ll never go to bed

Back to the day, back into this day
Back to another level, hotter than hell
Said that we're not savages until we do it again
Back into this institute…(?)
And one last night I'll kiss your lips again

What did I say?
Well did I say too much, Sister to Sleep?
I’ll fall awake at night
And I’ll never go to sleep

I will take this Ferris wheel
And I'm sleepwalking right back into this hell

Oh, I’m sorry
For the first time

Don't let me sleep tonight
Keep me awake tonight
Don't let me sleep tonight
Keep me awake

What did I say?
Well did I say too much, Sister to Sleep?
I'll never go to sleep
And I won't go back to bed

I come closer to your ledge

I'm sleepwalking right into this hell
Oh, God

    General Commentsorry ya i just listened to that and heres some help...
    i think maybe it says "i put it on"kinda repeating after i put on this medication
    andi think it says something about until we do it again after the said we're not savages until we do this again
    and i think the "more inaudible words" it says something about "welcome to this institution one way to resolution" again
    and i dotn think its put her to sleep i think its put sister to sleep in the chorus after ill kiss u again
    and pretty positive it's ferris wheel cuz it says set this ferris wheel ablaze in this is the best day ever i believe and theres a ferris sheel on fire on the back of the 1st album plus it just really sounds like it
    ya hope i was of help and thanks again

    General CommentGreat Song, especially the bridge
    (Don't let me sleep tonight
    and get in your way tonight
    Don't let me sleep tonight
    get in your way)

    though i still don't how the heck novocaine jane nailed the lyrics.

    General Commentnope, but if there is, it better be good.
    it's gotta have a studio version of this song, cause it's great.
    EP's are always a treat to the fans.
