Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death

I stay up through the nights Will I get to eat tonight Will I see the day I turn 21 One-Day will I feel the pain of a gun Will I die young Am I asking to many questions Does everything happen for a reason Is everything I go through one of Gods lessons Will I go to Heaven I stay up through the nights Will I reach new heights Lord tell me everything will be alright Now I think I want to be in love with the lights I just don’t want to fall to a Price Lord tell me everything will be alright I stay up through the night My eyes are getting heavy Am I ready to sleep Because Sleep Could be Deadly
