Sleep Apnea Lyrics - Chevelle

Review The Song (5)



There sat a new test
Much harder that you bought in
As for the unseen, just take care of what you will
Light the silent alarm
We never think that we're missing much 'til

I gasp and hold my breath
These needs had changed so deep
To face you all and say
I've been awake for

I need a new test
Then I set out to choose someone to
Light the soul like a kiln
Just imagine us chasing this with
Eyes scorned from sleep apnea
A slight of tongue as the seas are emptying

I gasp and hold my breath
sponsored links
These needs have changed so deep
To face you all and say
I've been awake for....

Ever
Ever
Ever
Ever

Try to read off a letter that's falling apart
The sun and the moon I count sheep
Escape like an animal i'm ready for my sleepless stroll

I felt these shifting hours mistakenly used up

So I gasp and hold my breath
These needs have changed so deep
To face you all and say
I've been awake for years/forever

I gasp and hold my breath
These needs have changed so deep
To face you all and say
I've been awake for...

Ever
Ever
Ever
Ever

Amazing | Reviewer: Alec | 3/8/12

I truely think he rolls into the next line when he says about Sleep Apknee so to say. I think Pete meant for it to roll like this. "Eyes scorned from sleep apne-A slight of tongue as the seas are emptying" That's how i believe he meant it. Either way it's a well written song and even if he did shorten it doesn't change how awesome it is:)

Response to MIck | Reviewer: Steve | 3/16/10

Great song.

In response to MIck about Pete saying "sleep ap-knee"... cutting the last syllable off just helps tighten it up for a better flow. Another example is how the band Anberlin uses the phrase "never take friendship personal" and using the word 'personal' instead of 'personally' in one of their songs. Though it's not grammatically correct, it sounds better because he isn't cramming syllables into places they don't fit.

That's my take on it.

Good Song | Reviewer: Kevon | 12/4/09

Digging deep into the metaphorical world, Pulling out secrets, And binding them into a melodic grind is what Chevelle is. Probably the greatest song on the album, it packs a punch to the listener with guitar riffs, drum pickups, and a melodic vocal tear!

Awesome | Reviewer: MIck | 11/10/09

I love this song, and the entire Sci-Fi Crimes album in general, but does anybody notice that Pete doesn't say it correctly? He says "Sleep Ap-knee". I just seen them Sunday in concert and he says it live as well. Great show however

Great Song | Reviewer: Roger Torres | 8/30/09

Something new, terrific sound Chevelle gets better and better with each album down to the most faint of notes. If your looking for a song to get you pumped in the morning look no futher "Sleep Apnea" is that song.
