stay awake lyrics – dishwalla

staring at the wall because you know it understands
and boy you wonder
about everything that could have been

it’s getting later all the time but you’re still wide awake
and boy you wonder
if you’ll ever sleep again

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
don’t let it slip away
don’t think that they’re not waiting

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
as your mind is peeled away
but they still seem to find you anyway

sift your hands through broken gl*ss
through your shattered crystal ball and boy you wonder
if you’ll ever see again

’cause every time you close your eyes
you know they’re right behind you and you wonder
if you’ll ever live again

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
don’t let it slip away
don’t think that they’re not waiting

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
as your mind is peeled away
but they still seem to find you anyway

don’t make a sound ’cause they’re living all around
with their shiny eyes and their shiny minds
and they’re living everywhere, watching every move i make
gotta stay awake

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
don’t let it slip away
don’t think that they’re not waiting

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
as your mind is peeled away
but they just seem to find you anyway

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
don’t let it slip away
don’t think that they’re not waiting

hey, hey, gotta stay awake
as your mind is peeled away
but they just seem to find you anyway
anyway, anyway, anyway
