"SILENCE OF THE SLEEPY"

Verse 1
He thinks he's king,
Pleased with himself,
Hazy, lazy as he brings
His flask off the shelf,
Pouring his mist over those
He's trapped within his sheets.
They've no mouths; the holes are closed,
And all are fast asleep.

Verse 2
At times my mind was filled with clouds
That hazed the truth I sought to see.
Then I came to say aloud,
"This sleepy life is the one for me."
That oriental tune
Had stole my senses, stole my mind.
Stole my senses
I thought I was enlightened,
But the darkness gloated from behind.

Chorus 1
Stirred up from my sleep, it was then I feared
I'd fallen prey.
I prayed, "God, no, not me,
Please take this demon far away, far away."

Verse 3
The lights are getting brighter,
My eyelids getting lighter.
Now that I've begun to search my soul,
Confusion fades away and takes a short walk down a long hole.
All I had to do was to look into Your face.
All You waited for was for me to wake up out of the sleepy lace,
Sleepy lace.

Yeah-e yeah

Chorus 2
Stirred up from my sleep, it was then I feared
I'd fallen prey.
I prayed, "God, no, not me,
Please take this demon far away.

Chorus 3
"I see where I went wrong,
The error of my ways.
Jesus, make me strong
And take this demon far away.

Chorus 4
"I see where I went wrong,
The error of my ways.
Jesus, make me strong
And take this demon far away."

Chorus 5
Stirred from my sleep, it was then I feared
I'd fallen prey.
I prayed, "God, no not me,
Please take this demon far away."
