On vices and fate

lyrics

I don't sleep when I dream
I stare wide awake into the high beams
I pay now for my then
I'm going down but I don't know when
I don't know when

I got a one and one that makes three
I'm overdrawn from the big bank of me
I got collateral damage piling up to the sky
And every reason is the reason why
Every reason is the reason why

Yeah, you know me
I need everything
I don't sleep when I dream
And this dream won't let me be

And this boulder on my shoulder's
Got me feeling older
And I pulled all the leaves
From my four leaf clover
Dumped all my change
Into the wishing well
And I hear it crashing loud
Down the tunnel to hell

I don't die when I'm dead
Girls and whiskey keep me up on my hind legs
I ain't found when I'm lost
And it's my body that pays the cost

Yeah, you know me
I need everything
I don't sleep when I dream
And this dream won't let me be

I'm going down

And this picture in the mirror
Is getting way too clearer
Running faster to stand stiller
The crowd's a painkiller
My last three dollars
Slapped down on the bar
Dammit if I can walk
Then I can drive my car

I don't know how it ends
With my candle burning hot in the summer winds
Sing the song till I'm done
Gazing into the setting sun

Yeah, you know me
I need everything
I don't sleep when I dream
And this dream won't let me be

I'm going down
