lyrics

Getting out of bed’s hard enough,
but getting in is tough when
outside sounds i cannot stand
won’t go away.

You’ll hear to try harder,
you’ll hear to lay back,
and that voice behind
the polarized advice can be the same.

The dark is more confusing than tiring,
low light with eyes wide open for
creatures i’ve heard are versed in hiding.
Some with fangs, some with horns,
some with claws, some with more

Ain't it amazing
how many strange things
pop in your head,
in bed?

It's hard to sleep like this.

Thinking
of all these strange things
when you should rest.

It's hard to sleep like this,
when there's monsters nearby.

I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.
by.
I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.

From everything you’ve seen you’re sure,
you’re out of ways to hide.
Though you may have gotten bit before,
it takes a little more to die.

Only told advice like,
“Why don’t you bite back.”
Well that’s nice, but i’ve tried,
and the metaphor doesn’t work like that.

The venom in your veins speaks volumes,
to all the silhouettes, you can't compare,
but you know if you don’t run, they’re gonna catch you,
but i can bet you, there’s nothing there.

Ain't it amazing?
How many strange things
pop in your head,
in bed?

It's hard to sleep like this.

Thinking
of all these strange things
when you should rest.

It's hard to sleep like this.

I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.
by.
I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.

We can be scared
of what’s just assumed,
but you swear you hear them there,
just over a room.

You can pull apart
what you’ve fallen for,
so step into the dark.
I thought it was hard,
but just at the start.
Only get so far
putting off those dreams of yours.


Ain't it amazing?
How many strange things
pop in your head,
in bed?

It's hard to sleep like this.

Thinking
of all these strange things
when you should rest.

It's hard to sleep like this.
when there's monsters nearby.

I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.
by.
I'm dead tired,
but there's monsters nearby.

(I'd call monsters monsters.)
