about

I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy with Cataplexy in late 2015. I've dealt with the symptoms since I was a teenager. I wrote this song before I knew I had narcolepsy, but it was about the symptoms I was experiencing. I also played the bass!

lyrics

When I'm walking I feel like I'm falling
I do all I can do to keep from falling
I've been getting to sleep by losing days
I find that this is just one of my old ways

My brain is moving too fast in my head
But when it's time to get up, I stay in bed
Light comes through my window every morning
But when I unclench my chest it gets to storming

I'm grinding my teeth on the ways in which I dream
And I can't speak in the ways in which I mean

There is starlight like water in my eyes
When I wake up from sleep I rub my eyes
I feel myself leave from my body
But I don't see it at all I see nobody

I'm grinding my teeth on the ways in which I dream
And I can't speak in the ways in which I mean

When I'm walking I feel like I'm falling
I do all I can do to keep from falling
I've been getting to sleep by losing days
I find that this is just one of my old ways

I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
I'm grinding my teeth
