Up against the riddle in the dead of the night

My soul he freeze, bring me to my knees
Eyes the size of footballs and I feel like shite

Was it the neighbours raucous entertainers
Or the cheese with the furry green skin?

Am I gonna sink or swim?
Can I make it to the other side?
If you'd only let me in – we could save the day

It is certainly complex but I managed to identify certain problems (not the ones in the song, that's poetic licence :-)) which you can read about in my post on tips on sleeping better.
