Sleepyhead Lyrics

All you've been asking for has been
Placed in front of you
The headaches, the shaking
The boredom the boardroom brings

You're scratching at itching
Brought by the spiders beneath your skin
The answer in question
Is over before it begins

Hey there sleepy smile
I see you've brought your bedroom eyes
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em
I'm assuming you reckon you won't

All you've been asking for has been
Placed in front of you
The headaches, the shaking
The boredom the boardroom brings

You're scratching at itching
Brought by the spiders beneath your skin
The answer in question
Is over before it begins

Hey there sleepy smile
I see you've brought your bedroom eyes
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em
I'm assuming you reckon you won't

Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
There's nothing to hold you but the flames
Nothing to see here but the rain
It's raining flames

Earth to sleepy smile,
Where'd you take those bedroom eyes?
Not assuming you wanna keep 'em
I'm assuming you reckon you won't

The song is about a Methamphetamine drug addict, as it references multiple key symptoms to a drug addiction to meth. For example, spiders under the skin- meth addicts feel like there are small bugs crawling over their skin. then of course the headaches and shaking are common withdrawal symptoms.
