Morphine sedates and sends you to sleep
What I would give for a sleep that was deep
I can hear birds calling my name
What I would give to send them away

Cos I'm still awake and weary and bleary eyed
I switched on my bedside light
Took out my shotgun instead
Fired twenty rounds of pure lead

The land of nod the trees are white
The sky is black, it's always the night
Sleeping pills do the trick
The candle's reached the end of the wick

It flickers and feels so weary and bleary eyed
I switched on my bedside light
Took out my shotgun instead
Fired twenty rounds of pure lead

...Weary and bleary eyed
I switched on my bedside light
Took out my shotgun instead
Fired twenty rounds of pure lead

Send me to sleep (x8)
To sleep (repeat and fade)
