"Sleeping Beauty" as written by Justin Andrew Harris, Daniel Frederic Seim and Brent Knopf....
When everyone's sleeping through the night
When everyone's sleeping through the night
And I'll unfold my hands

When everyone, everyone
When everyone's sleeping through the night
When everyone's sleeping through the night
And I'll unfold my hands and my hands and

Hotel bathroom
Off the deep end
There's a light on

Sleeping beauty
Share your wisdom
Keep the smoke in
With a towel

Stand back
Stand

Recollection
Will betray us
Sleeping beauty

Write a memoir
Lie through your teeth
Make me honest
Share the proceeds

Stand back
Stand
Stand back
Stand
(When everyone's sleeping through the night)

    General CommentI think the song may be about the whole james frey million little pieces incident, based solely on "write a memoir
    ⁠ lie through your teeth
    ⁠ make me honest, share the proceeds"

    Maybe?

    Either way, great fucking song, great fucking album, great fucking band.

    Lyric CorrectionI think the line is "Keep the smoke in with a towel" as in, plugging up the space between a door and the floor in order to hotbox a room.

    General CommentIs it "step back" or "stand back"? The first time he says it it sounds like "stepped back."

    Then there's this:
    "Everyone
    When everyone’s sleeping through the night
    When everyone’s sleeping through the night
    Then I’ll unfold my hands and my hands and
    When everyone’s… (repeat)"

    This is just a nonsensical round.

    Definitely "Keep the smoke in with a towel."

    I think it's "Make me honest, share the proceeds."

    I have no idea what "Eye through your C" is supposed to be. Anyone?

    General CommentI think it's about a murder of a prostitute or a woman in a crappy hotel room and the guilt is weighing down on the murderer.
