Neon Indian - Sleep Paralysist Lyrics




Talking cryptograms
you know as well as day
But keeping to themselves
the words they'll never say

Something you don't know
something I don't know
and they don't know

Shaping mirror eyes
that might as well be drawn
I'll be a stranger
by the time I'm up at dawn

Someone you won't know
someone I won't know
and they won't know

Don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so
don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so

Don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so
don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so

Watch you lose yourself
in momentary grace
It washes over you
then loses every trace

Not for you to keep
not for me to keep
nor them to keep

Empty daydream
that keeps playing on repeat
Each passing loop
more decayed less complete

And you don't weep
and I don't weep
they won't weep

Don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so
don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this’ll all seem fake so

Don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so
don't sleep
Won't be you when I'm awake so just
don't sleep
In the morning this'll all seem fake so

    Someone you won't know
    Someone I won't know

    Don't sleep, won't be you when I'm awake so just
    Don't sleep, in the morning this'll all seem fake so
    Don't sleep, won't be you when I'm awake so just

    Don't sleep, won't be you when I'm awake so just
    Don't sleep, in the morning this'll all seem fake so

    axel usul

    It does help if you can mentally control the fear, I still get it and night terrors, but that the way it rolls. Lucid dreaming I have been doing since a kid. None of it is cool or fun it can fuck up your life, especially if you have Narcolepsy and Cataplexy.
