I couldn't sleep last night
my ears were ringing in my head
Best friends with the boogie man
I may be better off here dead
Running on empty once again
Too tired for tears I dread
Sink deep into those magic dreams
while I blast off in my bed

And you know I played it all here
Where everyone hides their darkest shades of fears
And I threw my whole night down the drain
You know, cause everyone says that i'm not the same
since I changed my name

Three hours later and i'm staring at the ceiling still
Xanax does nothing more but calm the sleeping thrill
Turning the pillows round and round to find a cold spot for my head
Ah, bless my only friend

And you know I played it all here
Where everyone hides their darkest shades of fears
And I threw my whole night down the drain
You know, cause everyone says that I'm not the same
And everyone turns tricks for fickle fame
I feel my body's lost control
My knees get weak as I drift away
and it gets darker, darker
Dreaming's where I am

And you know I played it all here
Where everyone hides their darkest shades of fears
And I threw my whole night down the drain
You know, cause everyone says that i'm not the same

And you know I played it all here
Where everyone hides their darkest shades of fears
And I threw my whole night down the drain
You know, cause everyone says that i'm not the same
since I changed my name

    General CommentDoes this song remind anyone of anything off of Silverchair's "Neon Ballroom"? I mean, the vocals are just... wow. Exactly like it. This and Juliana Theory... man, Sugarcult and TJT are Silverchair sound-alikes, except for the music. Vocals are exact! SUGARCULT ROCKS.

    General Commentnice quiet song right towards the end of the album. i think it's just really calming and a little surprising, in the middle of this cd full of rock hooks and choruses.

    it's just a really nice song.
