I lie awake again no sleep tonight, I find no peace in the quiet absence of the light A million thoughts floatin' through my head A million seconds has passed me by in my bed One two three now it's four in the morning as the emptiness swallows me on more time I grow a little older with every second that passes I die a little every time I close my eyes No sanctuary in my dreams, no quiet place to hide, every night I swear it's the same And I don't know where I'll be tonight but I know sleep will come if I walk all night It's been a thousand hours maybe even more since I fell victim to all the thoughts I tried to ignore Nameless faces and sounds, voices screamin' in pain, huddled shadows And sirens voices calling my name. Well I can't sleep but I'm not Awake to this hazy dim version of reality. Hypnotized by everything I can't control Desensitized by everything that controls me Well I can't sleep so it's here in the dark I'll make my peace with all that I've learned Sanity's just another dream away maybe with time it'll be alright Every night I swear it's the same, I walk all night and never ever get anywhere It's taken all my strength, it's taken all the life that used to flow deep inside of me All my dreams are filled with no peace All of my days are filled with no rest Maybe with time it'll be alright

    General CommentIt could just be insomnia, but I think it's more indicative of a bigger problem, like depression or bi-polar disorder. People that have those types of things have racing thoughts and in extreme cases think they are hearing and seeing things...almost like a schizo. I know this all too well unforunately.
