Lyrics for I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep by Ghostpoet:

Verse 1
Count me out
I'm heading to Ecuador
No more letters
We just shred them all
Counting coins
Bits of copper crud
Stare at the stars
Feeling out of luck
Out of time
Out of time
Out of my body
Out of my mind
Maybe I've lost it
Who even cares?
Bury my head until this life becomes fair

Chorus
And I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake
And I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake

Verse 2
I swear in my dreams
I saved you from a fall
And I was king
But then I drank it all
Swayed off the road
Caring for nothing much
Some say reckless
I say out of touch
I'm sick of the noise
Why won't it let me be?
Fine my own
But all these hands keep on grabbing me
I'm taking my cheer
Taking a stand
Taking the piss
Because it seems that we can

Chorus
So I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake
So I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake

Verse 3
Let's run away
Let's leave it all behind
Only possessions
Stuff we collect in time
Just feel different
Itchy beneath my skin
Can't quite explain it
I can't stand the questioning
Can somebody tell me
Where the hell is the dimmer switch?
Done with his thinking
Laid out like a crucifix
And I want peace
In my heart
In my inner being
But won't find it here
With all this content warmongering

Chorus
And I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake
And I grow tired
But then I fall asleep
Who knows what?
Will I wait if I fall too deep?
Call it a mission
Call it a inner fear
But I am awake
I am awake
I am awake
