When I was growing I still can recall being told back when
The good laid their heads at night to sleep it'd always be
Now I've grown and I find every time I lay my weary
Head at night I toss and turn I can hardly sleep at all

Now I'm waiting, anticipating,
Contemplating the sleep of the just
I don't deserve it, but you, you preserve it
And I lie here watching the sleep of the just

I propose a bargain that you and I should trade
You can keep my guilty secrets I will lie in peace for ever and a day
If you agree then I will lay my bloody hands upon your soul at night
While the good are lying peacefully

Understanding, anticipating,
Contemplating the sleep of the just
I don't deserve it, but you, you preserve it
And I lie here watching the sleep of the just

Sleep of the (we don't deserve it)
Sleep (we don't deserve it)
Sleep of the (we don't deserve it)
Sleep (we don't deserve it)

When I was growing I still can recall being told back when
The good laid their head at nights to sleep it'd always be
Now I've grown and I find every time I lay my weary
Head at night I toss and turn I can hardly sleep at all

Now I'm waiting, anticipating,
Contemplating the sleep of the just
I don't deserve it, but you, you preserve it
And I lie here watching the sleep of the just

Sleep of the (we don't deserve it)
Sleep (we don't deserve it)
Sleep of the (we don't deserve it)
Sleep (we don't deserve it)
