New Song Lyric

Listening to Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" on the way to work inspired me to write my own positive pop lyric. Hopefully, it will make its way to a Disembodied Voices tune eventually.

 

"Sometimes I Choke Myself to Sleep"

 

All I want is to bring about the end

All I need is a rope, cord, or wire

If you say there is something to live for

My reply is you’re wasting your time

If you believe in a reason or purpose

If you feel there is a higher power

I’ll let you know when I get there

Provided there’s a way I can call from beyond

 

(chorus)

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I chase away my dreams

The moment when the noose gets tight

Is when I feel the most alive

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I strangle back the tears

My lost thoughts then unwind

Passing the sleepless time

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

 

If you believe in infinite sadness

Quantified by hopeless sedation

If you have blacked out fantasies

Then maybe you are just what I need

I can feel the end approaching

I can hear death’s siren song

This will be my final farewell

Tomorrow is my curtain call

 

(chorus)

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I chase away my dreams

The moment when the noose gets tight

Is when I feel the most alive

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I strangle back the tears

My lost thoughts then unwind

Passing the sleepless time

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

 

Last night I thought I had done myself in

No more pain no more heart break

Last night I thought that I could go through

Back at the last moment I untied the noose

Botched suicide a pointless endeavor

But I believe I’ll have another chance

All I want is to bring a sudden halt

But I just keep terrifying myself again

 

(chorus)

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I chase away my dreams

The moment when the noose gets tight

Is when I feel the most alive

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I strangle back the tears

My lost thoughts then unwind

Passing the sleepless time

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

 

Crying out dark hopeless romantic

Asphyxiation is my love child

She brings me sleep when I least expect it

She takes away the nightmare I bring

Awestruck by her presence

My own death a seductress approaching me

In time my eyes start to sparkle

I feel just like a timid schoolgirl in heat

 

(chorus)

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I chase away my dreams

The moment when the noose gets tight

Is when I feel the most alive

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep

Sometimes I strangle back the tears

My lost thoughts then unwind

Passing the sleepless time

Sometimes I choke myself to sleep
