"Sleepeater" as written by Karl Kippenberger, Phillip Knight, Tom Larkin and Jon Charles Toogood....
Balanced on the edge of a knife
Sleepeater slowly turning
Break it down, set it alight
He's here to start it burning

Waiting for you in the bedroom
Knows when you're alone at night
Want to stay awake forever
Hoping you can keep it tight
Everything you ever valued
Know that you will have to fight
Want to stay awake forever

And I will take you away from this emergency
At the end of the day you're your own worst enemy

Brothers take your sisters and hide
We see the storm clouds coming
The differences between you and I
Have already
Prepared and started running

Waiting for you in the bedroom
Knows when you're alone at night
Want to stay awake forever
Hoping you can keep it tight
Everything you ever valued
Know that you will have to fight
Want to stay awake forever

And I will take you away from this emergency
At the end of the day you're your own worst enemy
And it can take you to heaven, put you through hell (take you away)
Just as long as you don't look down
We can do it together, into my arms (end of the day)
Know that nothing can hurt you now

Sleep
Sleepeater
Sleep

It can take you to heaven, put you through hell
Just as long as you don't look down
We can do it together, into my arms
Know that nothing can hurt you now

And I will take you away from this emergency
At the end of the day you're your own worst enemy
And it can take you to heaven, put you through hell
Just as long as you don't look down
We can do it together, into my arms
Know that nothing can hurt you now

    My OpinionOne of my favourite songs of all time. Simple and rocks hard at stages. Surprised no one has commented, massively underrated song.
