    "Counting Sheep" Lyrics

    Conor Oberst

    Closing my eyes, counting sheep
    Gun in my mouth, trying to sleep
    Everything ends, everything has to
    Get well balloon, going insane
    Weight of the world, papier-mâché
    Gone with the wind, out into nothing

    I'm just trying to be easy, agreeable
    I don't want to seem needy to anyone, including you
    Little ___? drowned in a pool
    ___? got killed walking to school
    Hope it was slow, hope it was painful

    Life is a gas, what can you do?
    Catheter piss, fed through a tube
    A cyst in the brain, blood on the bamboo
    Highway to hell's littered with signs
    Everything last thing they advertise
    I want to buy, I want to sell too

    But I don't want to seem greedy, I'm generous
    I'm just trying to be pleasing to everyone, including you

    Tomorrow is shining like a razor blade
    And anything's possible if you feel the same

    Early to bed, early to rise
    Acting my age, waiting to die
    Insulin shots, alkaline produce
    Temperature's cool, blood pressure's fine
    One twenty-one over seventy-five
    Scream if you want, no one can hear you

    I just want to be easy, acceptable
    I don't want to seem needy to anyone, especially you

    Especially you
    Especially you
