Jason, believe me, you can't trust your dreams
When they take you alone in your room.
Some of them showgirls and some of them queens
But none of them who you swore to

Hold on, Ho-oh-oh-old on
Till they summon old bones of mothers of old
You say, "Love's gonna die."
They say, "Love's gonna come home."

Young man, you shake hands too quickly with
Captains that take you alone in the night.
What's in the hull? Is it femurs and skulls?
Then why are their hands so slight?

Hold on, Ho-oh-oh-old on
To the resident bones of sons who roam
You say you're gonna die
They say you're gonna come home

So sleep with your eyes open
Oh, sleep with your eyes open
Sleep on your back, stave off the attack
Of carnivorous things
Sleep with your eyes open
Sleep with your eyes open
Sleep on your back and kick off the attack of carnivorous things

    Lyric CorrectionJason, believe me, you can't trust your dreams
    When they take you alone in your room.
    Some of them show girls and some of them queens
    But none of them who you swore to

    Hold on. Ho-oh-oh-old on
    To the stubborn old bones of mothers of old
    You say, Love's gonna die.
    They say, Love's gonna come home.

    Young man, you shake hands too quickly with
    Captains that take you alone in the night.
    Cause what's in the hull? Is it femurs and skulls?
    And why are their hands so slight?

    Hold on. Ho-oh-oh-old on.
    To the resolute bones of sons who roam
    You say you're gonna die
    They say you're gonna come home

    So sleep with your eyes open
    Oh, sleep with your eyes open
    Sleep on your back, stave off the attack
    Of carnivorous things
    Sleep with your eyes open
    Sleep with your eyes open
    Sleep on your back and kick off the attack of carnivorous things

    Lyric CorrectionEdited and fixed so there aren't those annoying question marks where apostrophes should be
