Alice Cooper Can't Sleep, Clowns Will Eat Me Lyrics

Last updated: 07/21/2009 11:00:00 AM

Don't sing me lullabies
I won't close my eyes,
I can't close my eyes
It's true,
I'm doomed
'til dawn
shines through
Got too many things to do
Got friends to see,
I can't miss a thing
It's true,
I'm through
I'm screwed,
unglued

I won't close my eyes, I can't close my eyes,
I never close my eyes
You see, they're always there with funny hair,
Oh, I'm so scared

It happens to me every night
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
They always want to take a bite
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
And if you think this isn't real
I'll show you wounds that never heal
To them I'm just a happy meal
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

Make the coffee black as night
Help me through the night
I know their appetite for me
I'm meat
but I'm sweet
as can be
And if I do too much booze
I begin to snooze
I hear the big old floppy shoes
It's true,
I'm stew,
unchewed

I won't close my eyes, I can't close my eyes,
I never close my eyes
See, they're always there with that funny hair,
Oh, I'm so scared

It happens to me every night
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
They always want to take a bite
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me
And if you think this isn't real
I'll show you wounds that never heal
To them I'm just a happy meal
Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

Steven's Greatest Fear | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/09

It's something we were all afraid of as kids: being eaten in the middle of the night. Is it Steven, sitting in the trailer, wondering if the scary clowns at the carnival are after him, or Alice's own personal phobia?

It's one of the heaviest tracks on Dragontown, including Triggerman and Deeper. It's scary to think that even back on 2001, Alice was still the king of shock rock and the god of fear.
