sleeping in my flesh

Drowning while I sleep
The rain pours down
Like a falling knife
Some are awake throughout their surgery
Some are awake throughout their pain
But I've sleepwalked throughout my life
I've had my eyes closed to the world
For the tears I'd cry would burn
The wage of my sin is more than death
I long to sleep forever
I am tired beyond exhaustion
My mind is weary and besieged
There is nothing left to do
I've paid my dues
So if I can't sleep forever
Why can't I just leave?
