“and I’m afraid to sleep because of what haunts me,
such as living with the uncertainty,
that I’ll never find the words to say which would completely explain,
just how I’m breaking down.”—City & Colour “Sleeping Sickness”
“I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don’t lose my head.
they crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed.
dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I’m alone….
there’s a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain.”—Blue October “Hate Me”
