Artist: Third Eye Blind
Albums: Third Eye Blind (1997)

I'm on a train,
But there's no one at the helm
And there's a demon in my brain
That starts to overwhelm,
And there it goes,
My last chance for peace,
I lay me down,
But I get no release,
And I say...

I try to keep awake,
I try to swim beneath,
But still I find this narcolepsy slide
Into another nightmare

And there's a demon in my head
Who starts to play,
A nightmare tape loop of what went wrong yesterday,
And I hold my breath
'til it's more than I can take,
And I close my eyes; I dream that I'm awake

I try to keep awake
I try to keep awake
I try to keep awake
But still I find this Narcolepsy slides
Into another nightmare

I read dead Russian authors
Volumes at a time
I write everything down
Except what's on my mind
Cause my greatest fear
Is that sucking sound
And then I know I'll never get back out
And there's a bone in my hand that connects to a drink
In a crowded room where the glasses clink
And I'll buy you a beer and we'll drink it deep
Because that keeps me from falling asleep

I said,
How'd you like to be alone and drowning
How'd you like to be alone and drowning
How'd you like to be alone and drowning
How'd you like to be alone and drowning
Still I find this narcolepsy slide slide
Into another nightmare
Still I find this narcolepsy slides...
