Verse:
D A G                          D
    It's like I don't have the patience
                         A      G
Or the willpower to separate myself
          A                        D
From this inundated era I've been dealt

And all across the nation
                        A      G
Pixelated screens light up the night
       A                        D
Of insomniacs and night owls alike

Chorus:
            Bm                A
But we can turn off the lights; the sun's comin' up
    G                A
No dreams tonight to interrupt
     Bm               D            A
Turn off the alarm before it sounds
Bm                       A                G     A D
Get out of bed without putting your head down, down

Verse:
D A G                    D
    I've been closing my eyes real tight
                                 A         G
But the space between my lids betrays the light
        A                                  D
So I'm up again, I've lost the will to fight

The scrolling information
                          A    G
Pulls me in and holds me in a trance
A                                  D
Link to link, no I don't stand a chance

Chorus:
            Bm                A
But we can turn off the lights; the sun's comin' up
    G                A
No dreams tonight to interrupt
     Bm               D            A
Turn off the alarm before it sounds
Bm                       A                G     A D
Get out of bed without putting your head down, down

Bridge:
G                 D
Stay awake with me 
       G                 D
In the darkness you will see 
                Bm     A   G    A    D
What I've known all along, all along


Verse:
D A G               D
   Baby when you're sleeping 
                           A  G
I wonder if you see me in your dreams 
A                          D
Do you know exactly what it means

Maybe we are falling 
                            A      G
And when I hit the ground I disappear 
         A                               G
But you open up your eyes and I'm still here

Chorus:
            Bm                A
But we can turn off the lights; the sun's comin' up
    G                A
No dreams tonight to interrupt
     Bm               D            A
Turn off the alarm before it sounds
Bm                       A                G     A D
Get out of bed without putting your head down, down

Outro:
Bm A  G  A   D
Down, down, down
