A brass band is playing
Rehearsing it's thrills
All half-moon and cloudy
All golden and shrill

Got a sleep that burns
A sleep that burns
Got a sleep that burns all night
All right

I'm locked in your dark world
Where hearts hold the keys
Half-opened, enchanted
Half-truth and half dreams

Got a sleep that burns
A sleep that burns
Got a sleep that burns all night
All night

I'm sitting in a cafe in paradise
Naked as a razor, I'm as loaded as a dice
The waitresses all ask me for my price
I laugh, say I'm leaving
And this is only dreaming
So hold me while I'm screaming
Now... ! Is the moment of truth
Your youth is a mask
But it's not made to last
For we all have a past to out run
When the mask comes undone
And we race on and on
Through the fiery portals of hell

Go and tell all your friends
That you've witnessed the end
Of the world in a dream
A dream

The night winds are howling
Seducing the trees
I wake in a cold sweat
With the sheets round my knees

Got a sleep that burns
Got a sleep that burns
Got a sleep that burns all night
All right

I lay in the darkness
With visionless eyes
Exhausted and reeling
All heartbeats and sighs

But the sleep still burns
Yes the sleep still burns
Got a sleep that burns all night
All night
All night
All night
