I'll Sleep When I'm Dead Lyrics

It's the same each and every night
Glare at my screen with two big bloodshot eyes
I'm stuck self-torturing

My eyes are stapled open wide
As I lay down on my...

    this song is about the writer, and the fact that they are always the last one asleep, and the horrors of the delusions of sleep deprivation, it is also believed that this song is linked to; insomnia and loss of sanity, but these have not been confirmed by the artist.

    I personally think this song is about someone going insane due to insomnia. I get this from the phrase, "Bloodshot eyes." and "Self-torturing". For my interpretation of the singer having Insomnia, I can tell this by the words, "My eyes are stapled open" and "I can barely shut my eyes". To prove they are losing sanity, I'll use the quote, "My sanity is spent.". Overall, the possibility of them being insomniatic is from the quote, "All insomniacs, please raise your right hand". BOOM! Finished.

    I think one of the members of the band was insane but im not sure.
