lyrics

Pride has circled all around me
Stress, it seems, threw away the key
They all want to know my play but I am not about to say

Every night I watch the prey
Stand inside the moonlight’s shade
I’m so tired of looking on, show the fangs, strike at dawn

Forty winks
Frozen stiff while staring glassy eyed
Forty winks, but I’m alive

There’s freedom in giving in
Apprehend a suspicion
I could let it all just change, try again another way

Volunteer to demonstrate
If you will the ideal way
To find what one is looking for, past decisions to ignore

Forty winks
Frozen stiff while staring glassy eyed
Forty winks
I'm alive

Do you agree with running faster as you turn away?
I’m not gonna change a thing
Abandon course, tangent plane
Cuz I could never look like them
And I would rather not pretend

Forty winks
Frozen stiff while staring glassy eyed
Forty winks
I'm alive
