about

Sleep Is Boring is about grieving. I wrote this song a few years ago when I thought the band was coming to an end. Change is always difficult. It’s easy to mourn the way things were and it’s hard to accept the way things have become.

In the midst of everything that's going on in 2020, it seems like we’re all grieving something. We grieve for our old lives and we struggle to accept this new normal.

I miss seeing your faces. I miss singing your songs and I miss singing mine with you. I miss playing these songs with my friend over and over and over again. I miss taking my wife on dates to public places and I miss wrestling with strangers over a limited edition chicken nugget sauce. I know you’re missing things too.

It seemed fitting to release this song now. I hope this song gives you something to sing about. Sing it loud! After all, no one is around to hear you.

-Ben

lyrics

It’s just a window with a crack a crooked shutters
I’m looking out to see the weeds are overgrown
And casting shadows on the good life
You know the grass just needs some good light

The leaves are colored, dressing branches for the last show
The things we do to cover up the fact we’re dying
Hiding from the signs of closure
Knowing good and well it’s over

This is still my life

Where did time go?
I was dreaming
I can’t live slow
Sleep is boring

This house is cold and full of things that we believed in
A quiet hum that used to keep away the demons
And a smell that’s so familiar
But something’s new and so peculiar

The carpet’s worn and bare from years of heavy traffic
Boxes of memories are littering the attic
Telling stories of a past life
When every day turned in to good nights

This is still my life

Where did time go
When I was dreaming?
I can’t live slow
Sleep is boring
