LyricsEdit

    I should be calling collect from jail
    For the things I commit each night in my head
    Like last night in my sleep I got to snuff you
    But then I woke up again, safe in my little bed
    
    No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life
    
    I get to force your untimely disappearance
    Each night in my dreams, when I'm fast asleep
    I close my eyes and you just vanish soon as I
    Lay down my head when I'm dead to the whole wide world
    
    No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life
    And then I wake up and it was all just a dream
    And everything is the same
    
    Sleepwalker - Did I give you concrete shoes?
    And throw you off of a bridge
    Sleepwalker - When I lay down to sleep
    Pray your soul's mine to keep, I feel you near me
    Go to sleep, Sleepwalker
    
    Just taking a stroll; don't go to sleep! Here's some toothpicks for your eyes!
    
    You always make an excellent cadaver
    I roll your body up in a carpet to make music in the
    Trunk of my limousine, wrapped up in a rug
    A fitting end, is that I send you up the river like a punk
    
    No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life
    
    The angel of death is pissed off at me again
    Just because I got to put you out of my misery
    It doesn't matter, I am without fear
    Now you're dead, I won't shed another bloody tear for you
    
    No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life
    I'm calling down the thunder, then you'll sleep with the fishes
    The answer to all of my wishes
    
    Sleepwalker - Did I tell you I was in movies?
    Then dump you garroted, lying naked in a ditch
    Sleepwalker - Everyday, another way, I know you can hear me
    
    I think you'd look nice in a Colombian necktie
    Should stop your tongue from wagging the dog
    No more stupidity from you, as I pull your tongue through
    For a smile from ear to ear, now there's nothing to hear
    
    No one is safe when I close my eyes; I come to take your life
    And then I wake up and it was all just a dream
    And everything is still the same
    
    Sleepwalker - Did I give you concrete shoes?
    And throw your body off of a bridge
    Sleepwalker - When I lay down to sleep
    Pray your soul is mine to keep, I feel you near me
    
    Sleepwalker - Or did I tell you I was in movies?
    Then dump you garroted, lying naked in a ditch
    Sleepwalker - Everyday, another way, I know you can hear me
    
    Sleepwalker - Did I buy you the farm?
    Put a horse head in your bed
    Sleepwalker - When I lay down to sleep
    Pray your soul is mine to keep, I feel you near me
    
    Sleepwalker - Everyday
    Everyday another way
    Sleepwalker - When I lay down to sleep
    Pray your soul is mine to keep, I know you can hear me
