Faithless Insomnia Lyrics

Last updated: 11/30/2012 12:07:52 PM

Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
Is when I search for the light
Pick up my pen and start to write
I struggle, fight dark forces
In the clear moon light
Without fear... insomnia
I can't get no sleep

I used to worry, thought I was goin' mad in a hurry
Gettin' stress, makin' excess mess in darkness
No electricity, something's all over me, greasy
Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
Makin' mad love to my girl on the heath
Tearin' off tights with my teeth
But there's no release, no peace
I toss and turn without cease
Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast
At least a couple of weeks
Since I last slept, kept takin' sleepers
But now I keep myself pepped
Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
So when it's black this insomniac take an original tack
Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack
I gets no sleep
I can't get no sleep

I can't get no sleep
I can't get no sleep
I need to sleep, although I get no sleep
I need to sleep, although I get no sleep

why there are 2 versions of the lyrics to "Insomnia" | Reviewer: Insomniac (for real) | 11/29/12

Dear Johnny: The sing365 posted lyrics above are the 1997 Monster Mix (Radio Edit). The Radio Edit version comes in at 3:34 minutes. lordvader has provided the 1997 full length album lyrics and Monster Mix lyrics ("Reverence" 1997 US Release & Monster Mix version found on "Forever Faithless" 2005) that come in at 8:43 and 8:41 respectively - easier to tell versions apart by song length.
There are numerous mixes out there but these three appear to be the most popular. As all three are performed by Faithless, I guess they would all be "real" lyrics.

Hope this helps...

two versions | Reviewer: Johnny | 12/16/10


How come there are two versions of Insomnia?
The one from the album REVERENCE is with the lyrics of lordvader and another goes with the ones this website presented above.

Can anybody tell me, please ?


this is not the real lyric | Reviewer: lordvader | 10/8/10

I only smoke weed when I need to,And I need to get some rest,I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress,Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty,And on the count of three I pull back the duvet,Make my way to the refrigerator,One dry potato inside, no lieNot even bread, jam,When the light above my head went bam!I can't sleep, something's all over me,Greasy, insomnia please release me,And let me dream about making mad love on the heath,Tearing off tights with my teeth.But there's no relief,I'm wide awake in my kitchen,It's dark and I'm lonely,Oh, if I could only get some sleep,Creaky noises make my skin creep,I need to get some sleep,I can't get no sleep....

insomnia | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/5/07

this song makes you feel like you're an insomniac.
it seems to be the soundtrack to any day after a sleepless night and the nights themselves.
