I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No,no,no.

I'm so tired I don't know what to do
I'm so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you'd do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid git.

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind

Yeah, I knew that defense wasn't going to work. But at that point I was already committed...

I'd like to recommend everything done by Charles Vestal's "band", Major Inconveniences.
The lyrics to "Politics" speak to me a particuarly large amount:
"Politics!
Politics!
Politics!
Politics!
Politics!
Fuck you!"

"you enjoy myself" by phish is a pretty great song, which musically speaks volumes... but the lyrics consist solely of the words "boy," "man," "god," and "shit," in that order. and then some phrase in spanish or portuguese or something that's repeated several times.
