I'm on a train, but there's no one at the helm 
And there's a demon in my brain 
Who starts to overwhelm whelm whelm whelm whelm 
And there it goes, my last chance for peace 
You lay me down, but I get no release 
And I say I, I try to keep awake 
I try to swim beneath 
I try to keep awake 
But I, I can feel 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 till its more than I can take 
And I close my eyes and dream that I'm awake 
I try to keep awake 
I try to keep awake 
I try to keep awake 
But I, I can feel this narcolepsy slide 
Into another nightmare 
I read dead Russian authors volumes at a time 
I write everything down except whats on my mind 
Cause my greatest fear is that sucking sound 
And then I know that Ill 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 Ill buy you a beer and well drink it deep 
Because that keeps me from falling asleep I said 
How'd you like to be alone and drowning(x 4) 
 
Still I find this narcolepsy slide slide 
Into another nightmare 
Keep awake, keep awake, keep awake 
And I can feel this narcolepsy slide
