"No Sleep Tonight" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
And I'm thinking what's the deal
With the facts that they conceal
But I'm thinking what's the harm
With a bit of rhetoric and charm

But I can't quite comprehend
A beginning or an end
No I can't quite stomach this

You and me we're gonna take
To the skies for common sake
We'll fly amongst the cirrus clouds
20,000 feet we'll clock the crowds
And from that height we'll leak the lies
And unveil our damaged skies
'cause we can't quite stomach this

Look, all I'm trying to say is
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight

The sun and the sea could power us
No-longer cower in oil lust
Chernobyl is still a stain
Of the dangers of this game
I still can't quite comprehend
A beginning or an end
No I can't quite stomach this

Look, all I'm trying to say is
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight

We'll embark on our great voyage to the sun
And we'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?

Look, all I'm trying to say is
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight

We embark on our great voyage to the sun
We'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
Just like the ocean we won't be pacific anymore
No longer in coexistence with other species, this is flawed

You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight
You're not getting any sleep tonight

    General CommentJust made a couple of minor corrections, not sure about that last bit though.

    And I'm thinking what's the deal?
    With the facts that they conceal
    And I'm thinking what's the harm?
    in a bit of RHETORIC AND charm
    And I can't quite comprehend
    a beginning or an end
    No I can't quite STOMACH this now

    You and me we're gonna take
    to the skies for common sake
    We'll fly amongst the CIRRUS clouds
    TWENTY THOUSAND FEET WE'LL PLUCK THE CROWDS
    And from that height we'll leak the lies
    and unveal the damages skies
    'Cause we can't quite STOMACH this

    (All I'm trying to say is)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep tonight)

    The sun and sea could power us
    No longer cower in our own (glass?)
    CHENOBYL IS STILL A STAIN
    OF THE DANGERS OF THIS GAME
    I still can't quite comprehend
    A beginning or an end
    No I can't quite STOMACH this

    (All I'm trying to say is)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep tonight)

    BUT WE'LL WALK ON A GREAT _____ TO THE SUN (?)
    And we'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
    What are we waiting for?
    What are we waiting for?
    What are we waiting for?

    Yeah

    (All I'm trying to say is)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep tonight)

    BUT WE'LL WALK ON A GREAT _____ TO THE SUN (?)
    And we'll be 90 million miles from anything or anyone
    Just like the OCEAN we won’t be PACIFIC ANYMORE
    ____________________ SPECIES, THIS IS FLAWED

    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep)
    You're not getting any sleep tonight
    (getting any sleep, getting any sleep tonight

    General Commentit's basically about how scientists are paid to lie about climate change etc for the benefit of short term profit companies, and how they can sleep at night knowing what they're doing.
    amazing song :)

    No longer in coexistence with other species, this is flawed

    General CommentProbably my favourite track from Common Dreads. Can't for the life of me figure out what the lyrics are getting at though.

    General Commenthimynameisvic, I guess that suggestion makes sense to be honest.

    Would never have worked that out otherwise!
