Shinedown - No sleep tonight

Don't trip
This trap will close its mouth on you
There's not a damn thing you can do
You better brace for impact
Here comes a fade to black
Don't trip
This trap will spin you out

We've had enough of being powerless
We've heard it all, and no, we're not impressed
We are the nightmare that you brought to life
So don't turn off the lights
There'll be no sleep tonight

Speak up
Or they will bleed your courage dry
No, they were never on your side
Struck down the golden rule
As if they know what's best for you
Speak up
Or they will bleed you dry


We've had enough of being powerless
We've heard it all, and no, we're not impressed
We are the nightmare that you brought to life
So don't turn off the lights
There'll be no sleep tonight

Don't trip, speak up
No sleep until they hear us
Don't trip, speak up
No sleep until they hear us
Don't trip, speak up
No sleep until they hear us
A whisper to a scream
The scream that wakes you up

We've had enough of being powerless
We've heard it all, and no, we're not impressed
We are the nightmare that you brought to life
So don't turn off the lights, no
We've had enough of being powerless (we've had enough of being powerless)
We've heard it all, and no, we're not impressed (no, we're not impressed)
We are the nightmare that you brought to life (yes)
So don't turn off the lights
There'll be no sleep tonight
