Sometimes sleep and faith are hard to come by.


I don't sleep
'Cause I never liked the notion of countin' sheep
I've got places to go, I've got people to meet
And ain't one of 'em real, just between you and me
I don't weep
Just as tough as a coffin nail driven in deep
And I ain't the type of man who's gonna break his back
Over dollar bills and greed

Life's too short to live layin' in bed
Or sheddin' tears for the long lost dead
So knock back a shot or two with a good friend
'Cause these will be the happiest you'll have
Before you leave it

I don't beg, I don't plead
With a devil or a god or any man that I meet
'Cause I don't plan on being bought and sold so cheap
If eternity's forever then it's all the same to me

I don't agree to disagree
It just ain't in my mind to accept defeat
And you can bet that I'll be fightin' of the big sleep
The whole graveyard'll know when the reaper comes for me

Life's too short to live prayin' next to that bed
Or to worry about pleasin' a man overhead
So if in the end my eyes open to fire
I'll know how the dice were rolled and that the devil
Is on my side
