I Need Peace - Lyrics by Frank Black And The Catholics


Lyrics
Close your eyes
Or you'll have a lot of tears to cry
So hey now if you're wise
You won't open up your eyes
Close your ears'
Cause you don't really want to hear
The things that give you tears
So don't open up your ears
And if you sleep
Well, you better not go too deep'
Cause bad things they will seep
Right down into your sleep
And if you wake
Well, you're gonna have a nervous break
So sleep now for goodness' sake
Sleep for goodness' sake
I need peace
I get so down
I've got these
Turned up so loud
Turned up so loud
