New song!
Rough mix to see how it sounds.
And it appears Bon Jovi have a song called "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" which this [song] has nothing to do with but shows I have a some holes in my 80s/90s rock knowledge...
Look! Below are the lyrics:

lyrics

Grey pallor complexion like a cloud's cast a shadow on me
Burning candle at both ends, no bottle has set me free

The land of forty winks isn't at the end of forty drinks
But there's headaches and hallucinations that I dread
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I'll sleep when I'm dead
Yeah, I'll sleep when I'm dead
Seems the only way you'll get a pillow to my head
's when I'm lying in my coffin on a cold, satin spread
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead

Insomnia's crippled me with a vice-like clutch on my brain
Can't discern reality or pleasure from pain

No longer do I worry about bills, cheap thrills or annual revenue
I stare at the ceiling and morbidly look forward to
The sleep when I'm dead

I'll sleep when I'm dead
Yeah, I'll sleep when I'm dead
Seems the only way you'll get a pillow to my head
's when I'm lying in my coffin on a cold, satin spread
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead, no thoughts will fill my head
Sleep when I'm dead, no thoughts will fill my head
Sleep when I'm dead, no thoughts will fill my head
Sleep when I'm dead, no thoughts will fill my head
Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead

I find it futile to try and snap out of my nihilism, so instead I distract myself with small fictions set to fast music.
