  • I seem to find myself talking to the powers that be
    Awaking the shade and shadowed under towering trees
    Admiring the scene, inhaling fumes of flowers that breathe.
    Jet-lagged eyes are begging for an hour to sleep
    Although my blood shot whites and irises they never find any
    Clock stops at times where the sunshine can blind many
    Although my eyes are heavy, they won't be closing soon
    'Cause I heard that time waits for nobody, I suppose it's true
    We make corrosive tunes through acid tabs and vocables
    To see the flashing lights at photo shoots, we make our motive moves
    I say whatever I feel to vent a rhyme
    So I can still invent the lines and stay close to the friends of mine
    "'Cause real will recognize real" is what my father says
    And I'll be sticking to this phrase until I pass away
    Overworking, no sleep is just another way to die slow
    But I'll just keep going strong and never let my eyes close.

    Five o'clock with lights off
    Interview with a vampire
    Sleep is for the living and not a utensil that I require
    I swear I said, that I'll sleep when I'm dead
    Who's on the beat upon the feature with Ed, it's D-E-V to the Z
    Overtired, pale-faced like Michael Myers
    Bags underneath my eyes can show the baggage I've acquired
    And over the time within this maze I'll think you'll find you'll never find that piece of mind you seek to find until your dying
    'Cause I got too much to stay awake for, to sleep or even take 4, seconds out the game
    It's time to wage war
    Scissors, grab a sword, and sharpen up your hunting knives
    2 psychopathic lyricists are driving on the hunt tonight
    I'm haling from the Essex and the East London boarder line
    Villains never sleep the mastermind in all sorts of crimes,
    Be wide awake just like your snorting lines
    Or get left mortified like you've just seen the ghost of Jesus walking by

    [Chorus]
    I never sleep
    When trouble steals thoughts from my restless mind for free, it could be,
    The times I'm living in I never sleep, when trouble steals thoughts from my restless Mind for free, it could be...
    The times I'm living in lately.

    I brush my teeth every night but still I wake up with a bad mouth
    And the background is my past and my presence will bring it back out
    Deliver the raps how I flow
    I live with the raps now and those that hate me call me Ron
    But they won't Slytherin too easy, believe me I'm Snape minded
    Be within this great time, be on minimum wage, life is a prison escape that I'm in
    It's all to do with timing not the label that you sign with
    Then my mates are doing fine but then they never put the time in
    I try to hide my cold side like when I flip my pillows
    Some of the the songs I write are real because the chart is filled with si-lo-con
    I'm still broke without the money for a Mac Pro, living out of three bags no talk About my cash flow
    Opposite of sober cause I never did my homework
    Which has got me on the sofa, no degree but growing older
    I played a fool to catch the wise I will never tell a lie
    Await death, take deep breaths, try to never die.
    Never die.

    Two guys with the same view, keep it tight like screws
    Making metaphors flow and move, like typhoons and tunes
    And if we got our eyes on you, we'll catch you while you snooze,
    Times elapsing while your catching Z's, the masses like to move
    We scan the situation, analyse information, and then decide what probably is most Practical to do,
    Driven young gentlemen
    I've hardly changed my bed sheets at all over the last 12 months 'causeI haven't Slept in them, true!
    I'm coming home, the lights are on, your rights are wrong so I'm correcting 'em
    We got the fans all like 'Oh wow it's Devs and Ed' what less did you bloody expect From 'em
    In the end sleep deprivation might just be our detriment
    Fighting through writers block from 9 o'clock to 5 o'clock and no way will I ever Waste a second of the time I got,
    I keep my pupils engaged,
    Like a classroom in holy matrimony but I'm only trying to stay awake.

    [Chorus]
    I never sleep
    When trouble steals thoughts from my restless mind for free, it could be,
    The times I'm living in I never sleep, when trouble steals thoughts from my restless Mind for free, it could be... [x4]
    The times I'm living in lately.
