    General Commentin the verses that go as follows:

    "fall asleep
    fall asleep
    sleep satisfied
    sleep satisfied"

    the second line isn't another 'fall asleep'. it's the same in each of these verses, but it's not that. but i can't offer an alternative.

    this song's definitely different. i think what they were trying to do never came to full fruition - i don't think they executed this as well as intended. but it's still great.

    General Comment"Fall asleep
    Fall asleep"

    I don't hear the 'ssss' in the second line. I think it's:

    "Fall asleep
    Follow me
    Sleep satisfied
    Sleep satisfied"

    Whatever it is... amazing song.

    Can't believe it's only been 8 days since I heard this album, it's been virtually all I've been listening to, feel like I know it inside out already. Best thing they've put out since Parachutes and by quite a margin too.

    General CommentIt should be:

    Sleeping is a satisfier

    and:

    Sleeping is a crucifier

    ...i think. good song anyways.
