Liner Notes: 

Discovered that there's a preset on Superior Drummer 3's core library labelled "Collins Kit" and that led to this...


Although I lie in wait for sleep to come
It slips and slithers out of reach
The pills and booze I use to make me numb
Awareness finds the slightest breach
Its grip as certain as a leech


I try in vain to find a remedy
To help me sleep, perchance to dream
I find unconsciousness eluding me
I close my eyes to drift downstream
It's not as easy as it seems


Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

that drum beat certainly is as unsettling as a night awake. i love the slow ebb and flow of your lyrics as you sing them, you voice carries the fear of sleeplessness like a heavy burden,

Words we have all felt and I love the music you put with the words. Great song

love the slow build, i like the last line of each verse turn. love the reverb yet the close up vocals, like a warehouse of sleeplessness
