I'm no longer a kid.
I no longer drink milk
to help me sleep

Milk

Since i was a kid

Since i was a kid i've struggled falling asleep

Since i was a kid i've struggled falling asleep because of anxiety

I could count sheep until eternity

I could count sheep until eternity and still

I could count sheep until eternity and still, no rest

My parents would leave the door open

My parents would leave the door open and a small light on

My parents would leave the door open and a small light on Hoping the nightmares would soften

I would soon after tip toe to the living room

I would soon after tip toe to the living room Saying i felt sick to my dad on the couch

I would soon after tip toe to the living room Saying i felt sick to my dad on the couch Wanting me to leave quick

He would suggest I'd drink some warm milk

He would suggest I'd drink some warm milk So i would slowly sip

He would suggest I'd drink some warm milk So i would slowly sip quietly, not wanting to go back to sleep

The heat would caress my aching belly

The heat would caress my aching belly The white flavour would comfort me

The heat would caress my aching belly The white flavour would comfort me But the effect lasted shortly

The heat would caress my aching belly The white flavour would comfort me But the effect lasted shortly till i was back in my bed

Years after the past

Years after the past Months before the present

Years after the past Months before the present I've started to think I've battled it

Years after the past Months before the present I've started to think I've battled it I've battled my anxiety

But I'm not without enemy

But I'm not without enemy I'm still not in peace

I'm no longer a kid

I'm no longer a kid I no longer drink milk

Instead

Instead, to help me sleep

Instead, to help me sleep, i chug on a poison

The burn makes my belly ache

The burn makes my belly ache The bitter flavour disgust me

The burn makes my belly ache The bitter flavour disgust me But at least my head is finally drained

The burn makes my belly ache The bitter flavour disgust me But at least my head is finally drained and i can finally sleep .
