    When you no longer sleep
    Life becomes too long
    Days blur into nights
    You don’t feel that strong

    When you no longer sleep
    Time creeps to a stop
    Your brain starts to go haywire
    Your mouth and jaw just drops.

    When you no longer sleep
    Something is very wrong
    You can’t live like this
    No, not very long.

    When you no longer sleep
    There is a disturbance in the force
    You spend all night watching
    Morning comes, of course.

    When you no longer sleep
    You’re living on borrowed time
    Your body will strike back
    You’ll lose your sense of rhyme.

    When you no longer sleep
    Life mocks you and your trials
    Steals your confidence
    And takes away your smile.

    When you no longer sleep
    You lose time and circumstance
    You get so wound up
    And forget how to dance.

    When you no longer sleep
    You forget the how and why
    If you don’t get some rest
    Maybe you will die.

    When you no longer sleep
    Maybe you feel bad
    Over something you did
    Or just how you got had.

    When you no longer sleep
    You care less and less
    Lose your cool often
    Left only to second guess.

    When you no longer sleep
    You may be psychotic
    Maybe off your meds
    Might be a little neurotic.

    When you no longer sleep.
    You’re scared and cannot run
    The evil eye has got you
    You might be under the gun.

    When you no longer sleep
    It could be because you’re alone
    Nobody at your side
    No one is in your home.

    When you no longer sleep
    The day seems like a dream
    From which you can’t awaken
    If you do you’ll just scream.

    When you no longer sleep
    You write very long poems
    About all the madness
    And how life takes its toll.

    When you no longer sleep
    You lose your true intent
    You’re in survival mode
    Maybe can’t pay the rent.

    When you no longer sleep
    You spend too much time online
    For it is safer
    Than the life you left behind

    When you no longer sleep
    You think of life in sound bites
    Lose your intention
    And then you lose the fight.

    When you no longer sleep
    Tell me, what was their names?
    You know, the people
    Who made you this insane.

    When you no longer sleep
    You really need some help.
    But where can you get it
    If you don’t help yourself?

    When you no longer sleep.
    Death starts to stare
    He knows you are running
    Eventually you’ll be there.

    When you no longer sleep
    You repeat yourself often
    Till they stop listening
    Tell me what then?

    When you no longer sleep
    Nothing ever gets done
    You put it off until tomorrow
    Another day, same sun.

    When you no longer sleep
    Nothing seems to please
    You can’t get any rest
    From whatever is your disease.

    When you no longer sleep
    Your systems start to shut own
    A certain way to die
    That can ever be found.

    When you no longer sleep
    You start to beg for mercy,
    “Someone turn me off
    Quick before they bring the hearse in”.

    When you no longer sleep
    You stand guilty as charged
    Your life went out roaming
    Somewhere, still at large.

    When you no longer sleep
    When you no longer sleep
    When you no longer sleep.
    When you no longer sleep.
