Sleep When I'm Dead

The Cure

Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
But until then...

They told me I would live forever
If I kept it clean
They said I would be the chosen one
If I took one for the team
Yeah it's the only way to be
Never think it isn't fair
It's a green-eyed panic climb
To the edge of nowhere

Give it to the chicken
And see if it ticks
Yeah, give it to the kitten
See if it sits
Give it to the wonderful, wonderful me
And I will tell on my return just how it is
with all the happy boys and girls

Yeah the whole perfect happy world
And the love they feel for me
Yeah the love they feel for me

Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said

Told me I could run the world
If I kept it quiet
They said I could be the man
If I took it out of sight
In a monkey suit again
Having fun with all your friends
How a casual act can pull
All this world to pieces

Give it to the pony
Yeah and see if she kicks
Give it to the puppy
And see if he sticks
Give it to the wonderful, wonderful me
I'll let you know when I get back, just how it is
with all the other boys and girls

Yeah the whole (fucking) other world
And the way it stirs inside
And the why it never burns (at night?)
And the way they make the (climb?)
And the why they never pray for time
And the way I show surprise
And the why I never close my eyes
Yeah, just how it is

Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead, I said
Sleep when I'm dead, you angels
I'll sleep when I'm dead
But until then...

I should at least be tired, I think
Before I lay me down to dream
