A Song for Sleep

from by landlines

lyrics

While bored above his majesty of slumber
Began to read and fell asleep himself
So sat below a man who laid and wondered
Why am I not at rest I cannot tell.

I’ll count the sheep that fall asleep without me
I’ll read about my moments left unsaid
A pillow cannot cure me by the week’s end
So up the stairs I’ll go beneath my bed

Bordered by a mattress
His dark reigns upon us
Bordered by a mattress
Dear me is it dawn yet?

Beyond the sorry steps there stands a tower
A healthy pour, his house was made of sand
I’d sell my soul to sleep a half an hour
Your majesty’s mistake will ruin man
