Counting Sheep
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Closing my eyes, counting sheep
Gun in my mouth, trying to sleep
Everything ends, everything has to
Get well balloon, going insane
Weight of the world, papier-mâché
Gone with the wind, out into nothing
Verse 2
I'm just trying to be easy, agreeable
I don't want to seem needy to anyone, including you
Verse 3
[?] drowned in a pool
Nearly got killed walking to school
Hope it was slow, hope it was painful
Life is a gas, what can you do?
Catheter piss, fed through a tube
A cyst in the brain, blood on the bamboo
Highway to hell's littered with signs
Everything last thing they advertise
I want to buy, I want to sell too
Verse 4
But I don't want to seem greedy, I'm generous
I'm just trying to be pleasing to everyone, including you
Verse 5
Tomorrow is shining like a razor blade
And anything's possible if you feel the same
Verse 6
Early to bed, early to rise
Acting my age, waiting to die
Insulin shots, alkaline produce
Temperature's cool, blood pressure's fine
One twenty-one over seventy-five
Scream if you want, no one can hear you
Verse 7
I just want to be easy, acceptable
I don't want to seem needy to anyone, especially you
Verse 8
Especially you
Especially you
