Sleep

leave a comment »




According to our friends at Wikipedia, Sleep is a naturally recurring state characterized by reduced or absent consciousness, relatively suspended sensory activity, and inactivity of nearly all voluntary muscles.
It is distinguished from quiet wakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, and is more easily reversible than being in hibernation or a coma.
Sleep is also a heightened anabolic state, accentuating the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems. It is observed in all mammals, all birds, and many reptiles, amphibians, and fish.

Unfortunately I can’t get any!

Faithless – Insomnia (Mediafire Link)

I only smoke weed when I need to,
And I need to get some rest,
I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress,
Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty,
And on the count of three I pull back the duvet,
Make my way to the refrigerator,
One dry potato inside, no lie
Not even bread, jam,
When the light above my head went bam!
I can’t sleep, something’s all over me,
Greasy, insomnia please release me,
And let me dream about making mad love on the heath,
Tearing off tights with my teeth.
But there’s no relief,
I’m wide awake in my kitchen,
It’s dark and I’m lonely,
Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
Creeky noises make my skin creep,
I need to get some sleep,
I can’t get no sleep…


And now, here’s the Kinks’ pong to Faithless’ ping: A cover produced by Geoff Barrow of Portishead

The Kinks – I Go To Sleep (Demo Version) (Mediafire Link)

When I look up from my pillow I dream you are there with me.
Though you are far away I know you’ll always be near to me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.

I look around me and feel you are ever so close to me.
Each tear that flows from my eyes brings back memories of you to me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.

I was wrong, I will cry, I will love you to the day I die.
You alone, you alone and no one else, you were meant for me. ot sure how
When morning comes once more I have the loneliness you left me.
Each day drags by until finally night time descends on me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.
I go to sleep, sleep, and imagine that you’re there with me.


Somebody told me recently that some things are better left unsaid. I should’ve just posted the lyric that came through my head. Now, this post has taken a totally different meaning… or has it?
