Welcome to this institution
One way to resolution
I'm put on this medication
Rolls down my throat

Cause I can't ever sleep at night the same
This medication enjoys, enjoys most every day

Cause I close my eyes,
I see land

What did I say?
What did I say to put Sister to Sleep?
And fall awake and die
And I'm never goin' to bed

Back to the day, back into this day
Back to another level, hotter then hell
Said that we're not savages until we do it
Again
And one last night I'll kiss your lips again

What did I say?
What did I say to put Sister to Sleep?
And fall awake and die
And I'm never goin' to sleep

I will take this ferris wheel
And I'm sleepwalking back into this hell

Oh my darling
For the first time

Don't let me sleep tonight
And get in your way tonight
Don't let me sleep tonight
Get in your way

What did I say?
What did I say to put Sister to sleep?
I'll never go to sleep
And I won't go back to bed

I'm sleepwalking back into this...
Hell!
Oh... God...
playground eyes.
Awake and Unafraid
playground eyes.

I don't really know what this song is about, but i read on the youtube comments (xP) that its about a guy who rapes his sister while she sleeps.. i guess some parts might suggest that? ("said we're not savages until we do it again", "don't let me sleep tonight", "one last night i'll kiss your lips again", etc.)
xo.

i dont really get this song either,
but i remember Gerard saying in (i think it was) the WSOU interview that "sister to sleep" was a reference to the Sandman comic books (which are amazing btw), and that this song was hoped to be included in the Freddy Vs Jason sountrack.

personally, (this hardly makes sense) i take the song to mean that:
the only time he/she feels alive is when their dreaming, [Cause I close my eyes, I see land]
this is due to the medication they're taking [Cause I can't ever sleep at night the same, This medication enjoys, enjoys most every day]
and they're terrified of what happens in their dreams [I'm sleepwalking back into this hell],
as he/she's scared their going to get in someones way [Don't let me sleep tonight, and get in your way tonight]


*shrugs* i wish more interviewers had asked about this song...

This is about sleep deprivation and Freddy Krueger
