lyrics

So sleep is the closest thing to love
Maybe we can dream clearer than we think
If we can stand it we can hear each others secrets
When I see you in my head, while we're sharing the bed

CHORUS:
Sleep is the master of my body
Sleep is the mind of my mind
Sleep is the singer of my breath
Sleep is all I leave behind

Something warm and liquid flows
The molasses of your body flowing into me
Now I can taste it and I know what you're doing
When you turn out the light, and die into night

CHORUS:
Sleep is the master of my body
Sleep is the mind of my mind
Sleep is the singer of my breath
Sleep is all I leave behind

Must be a scary way to feel
Always losing myself, as if you're someone else
Carry on inside you like a whirlpool in our blood sea
Flecks of red are seeping through the lining of our sleeping
