But I’m a head case if I don’t keep moving, and my head hurts if I don’t sit still. It’s an itch that I never stop scratching. It’s a hole that I never quite fill.

Electric President – Insomnia Lyrics
There’s a light bulb dangling from string,
it’s slowly swaying up over my head now.
As I jot down the words that’ll never be sung,
and wait for my headache to numb.
And the wind sounds as if the world’s sighing,
and the moon’s just a torn fingernail,
as the TV flickers and hums by the wall,
and I wait for my eyesight to fade.

So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.
So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.

While the bright eyed choke on ambition,
and the old folks circle their graves.
And the young ones are busy destroying their names,
and you’re still just wasting away.
I sit and watch the screen for a message,
some kinda sign that says we’re okay.
But the screen stays blank til I turn the thing off,
and wait for my conscience to break.

So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.
So, So, So.
It’s so damn slow.

And I hope you’re learning to listen.
And I hope you’re learning to stay.
And I hope you find what you’re missing.
And I hope that you’re making you’re way.
But I’m a head case if I don’t keep moving,
and my head hurts if I don’t sit still.
It’s an itch that I never stop scratching.
It’s a hole that I never quite fill.

So
