Lyrics

Hope is counterfeit
Inside the life you live
I'm choosing to exist
In sleep I can't resist
A waking sun is calling out to you
But peace is so much more behind my chamber door

Why chase the harder ground?
Sleep it all away
Leave it for another day
Sleep until it's safe
Escape the world around
Leave it for the underground
Leave for sleep's soft surrounds

Escape the world somehow
Safe in sleep for now

Fireworks and search lights fill the sky tonight
The places where you hide are shining now too bright
And poetry turns to paper cuts

Why chase the harder ground?
Sleep it all away
Leave it for another day
Sleep until it's safe
Escape the world around
Leave it for the underground
Leave for sleep's soft surrounds

And I will retreat,
I will retreat to the safety of sleep

I'm sleeping it away
All I want to forget
It's better the edge of life
I'm sleeping away
All of the things I regret
'Til my mind has reset

I will retreat to the safety of sleep
