"Sleep" as written by Christopher Bridges, Shondrae L Crawford, Jordan Houston, Paul Beauregard, Darnell Carlton, Arbie Wilson and Bobby Sandimanie....
How can you sleep in these troubled times (I don't know)
How can you sleep in these troubled times

Ey yo, fuck it. I guess I can't so I stand
Up on my feet and try to relax drinking cans
Of? that's like drinking can-
Cer in a container, but fuck it. What isn't?
You're already dying if your living
And I'm sinning, but I'm asking no one for forgiveness
Because the people running the church is a crooked politician
So I'm tripping, but not psychedelic more like psychotic
Because I'm sick of these psycho bitches in my pockets
What are my options other than to just sit and just watch it?
Have them take action and try to stop this, nonsense,
Crying alert and trying to feed, never thought I'd wake up to see
The mark of the beast, but I did now how can I sleep
I can't even dream without even?
To help with keep up with the conscience
And by that I mean awake,
Cause now I'm feeling that sleeping was my biggest mistake
But I don't know

How can you sleep in these troubled times ( I wanna
Sleep but I don't wanna let my guard down)
How can you sleep in these troubled times (I can't
Sleep my gears are grinding too hard now)
How can you sleep in these troubled times (I never
Sleep more than four hours at a time now)
How can you sleep in these troubled times ( I don't
Even wanna lie down, because if I do then lights out)

Super insomniac rolling up comiac? Blunts in a Pontiac
Like pardon me, honey, but where is your mommy at
Fighting for innocence. Trying to be militant
Even though at times I'm high and belligerent
Lighting a cigarette, not with tobacco in it
But don't start acting strange and stuff
These ingredients ain't as dangerous as angel dust
I promise you I've never been violent or psychotic,
Dude but at times I just might forget who I was talking to
But that's the worst of it. At least I know what my
Purpose is I never swerve it? If it was legalized I would purchase it
Or perhaps that's the deprivation and later when I awaken
I can meditate over my statements, but fuck it
You need to know this. Every song recorded
Should reflect a moment in the life of the person that wrote it
As well as the personality of those that support it
And if you disagree, may the cousin of death leave you slaughtered
Because you're sleeping

How can you sleep in these troubled times ( I wanna
Sleep but I don't wanna let my guard down)
How can you sleep in these troubled times (I can't
Sleep my gears are grinding too hard now)
How can you sleep in these troubled times (I never
Sleep more than four hours at a time now)
How can you sleep in these troubled times ( I don't
Even wanna lie down, because if I do then lights out)

Who can you turn to? (when you're in a rut and uh)
Who can you turn to? (when you're fucked up and uh)
Who can you turn to? (when you're feeling stuck and ya)
Who can you turn to? (feel like everything sucks. Tell me)
Who can you turn to? (when you're feeling stressed and uh)
Who can you turn to? (when you're in a mess and ya keep hearing)
Peace and love are the only keys to gladness

Yeah that's what they say to me
So I go day to day trying to live patiently
Pacing myself. Staying as safe as can be
Walking with broken two wings
Adapting, while time keeps changing degrees rapidly
You can tell by cracks in the streets
Because it's aging, but see
But amazingly not one agency
Has concerns for saving things
Except for maybe me and my people
Who stay with me fighting courageously
Haters who sleep major, but can't take it from me
Because I never sleep
