(words and music by: Z. Walters)

I wish that I could sleep the way my girlfriend does
She sleeps through every earthquake and all the floods
But when the rooster crows, my eyes are barely half closed

With my rope lights beeming and my brand new sink, clack, clack
Checkered medicine cabinet, bathroom black and pink, eh
Feng shue hasn’t helped me in anyway

I need, I need sleep oh so badly
Put your little arms up and grab me
I need, I need sleep oh so badly

No parking spots from 2nd street to ximeno
So many parking violations, I guess I’m criminal
Livin in a haze, smog don’t even faze me

Diphenhydramine in my veins, over saturated
Wheels spinning, going nowhere, over caffeinated
I swear, narcolepsy’s my solemn prayer

I need, I need sleep oh so badly
Put your little arms up and grab me
I need, I need sleep oh so badly

    My OpinionHaving Narcolepsy myself it annoys me (just a teeny bit) that even though his girlfriend possibly has narcolepsy he would wish for it so he can sleep ... obviously he doesn't "get" what narcolepsy is, that it isn't any kind of relief at all because it's not "real" sleep, there's no REM function ... you can sleep for days but never feel rested, always feel like you stayed up all night ... hmm, kind of like he feels now ... If I could offer him some advice I'd say stop trying so hard to sleep, just find some way to amuse yourself or something useful even (write more songs!) until you feel sleepy even if you wind up stay awake all night, better than fighting with yourself all night with the same result in the morning ... let your brain accept what it wants instead of putting it to war with its own self ... once you stop trying to control whatever's going on there you'll feel better and maybe even sleep.
