Anthrax – Snap/i’d Rather Be Sleeping Lyrics

(Written by Brecht)

Originally performed by D.R.I.

No, there are no easy answers

To sum up the problems which we face

History’s a lesson, let us learn by our mistakes

Just don’t expect to make sense

Out of what you see

For I can tell you now that

Knowing is believing

So if you open your mind you might understand

You’re the victim of a big time government scam

And though you may not be inclined to believe

The man behind the desk does get paid to deceive

You live in your little dream world

You’re much too cool to care

I really have to warn you

I think it’s only fair

They await the final hour

As happy as they are sick

Laughing so hysterically

At all those who they’ve tricked

Who an I to tell you who to believe in

When all the masks they seem so damn deceiving?

How can I say to you, "You be free"

That would never bring about mass anarchy

Now, would it?

From sun up to sun down

Decisions make my head spin round

Make me drunk, sick and tired

Keep me up ’til I retire

And while I could be out barhopping

Meat market, rocker chick shopping

Out there, chasing my dick

In it’s never ending search for chicks

But, I’d rather be sleeping

In my bed, crashed out

A slice of death, wrapped up

All in wool, passed out

Drunk, you stupid fool

In my bed, crashed out

A slice of death, wrapped up

All in wool, passed out

Drunk, you stupid fool

No more waking hassles

Weary of the daily battles

So on my bed, I lay curled

No more waking hassles

Weary of the daily battles

So on my bed, I lay curled

A "could be" man of the world

But, I’d rather be sleeping

In my bed, crashed out

A slice of death, wrapped up

All in wool, passed out

Drunk, you stupid fool

In my bed, crashed out

A slice of death, wrapped up

All in wool, passed out

Drunk, you stupid fool
