Sleepytime in the Western World

This song is by Blitzen Trapper and appears on the album Furr (2008).

Your eyelids are made of lead
You can't keep them up 'cause its sleepytime
And that's no crime in the western world
'Cause when the sun goes down you're bound to follow through
Sleepin' through the afternoon
I just can't seem to leave my room waiting for the moon and a love so true
It's gonna see me through
You know it's gonna see me through

'Cause when the sun goes down it's gonna make that dream come true
Sleeping through the afternoon
I just can't seem to leave my room waiting for the moon and a love so true
It's gonna see me through
You know it's gonna see me through

Drifting down the sleepy river, waking like a child
Never gonna know what the spirit said unless you drift down for a while
Never gonna know what the wind is whispering now
Never gonna know unless you leave this world somehow
Unless you leave this world somehow

I woke up on the street so apprehensive, feeling weak
And as I finally tried to speak twelve birds flew straight-ways from my mouth
I circled high above the sky began to cry with piercing sounds
A crowd gathered on the ground all speaking strangely through their teeth
I felt alone and in my crib, I spoke once more into the wind
A storm of birds contained therein, began to spin, to spin

Your eyelids are made of lead
You can't keep them up 'cause its sleepytime
And that's no crime in the western world
'Cause when the sun goes down you're bound to follow through
Sleepin' through the afternoon
I just can't seem to leave my room waiting for the moon and a love so true
It's gonna see me through
You know it's gonna see me through
