    Deep in the bosom of the gentle night
    Is when I search for the light
    Pick up my pen and start to write
    I struggle, fight dark forces
    In the clear moon light
    Without fear... insomnia
    I can't get no sleep

    I used to worry, thought I was goin' mad in a hurry
    Gettin' stress, makin' excess meth in darkness
    No electricity, something's all over me, greasy
    Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
    Makin' mad love to my girl on the heath
    Tearin' off tights with my teeth
    But there's no release, no peace
    I toss and turn without cease
    Like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast
    At least a couple of weeks
    Since I last slept, kept takin' sleepers
    But now I keep myself pepped
    Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
    I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
    So when it's back this insomniac take an original tack
    Keep the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack
    I gets no sleep
    I can't get no sleep

    I can't get no sleep
    I can't get no sleep
    I need to sleep, although I get no sleep
    I need to sleep, although I get no sleep

    Don't know if it will be of any use, but I find that listening to gentle ambient music helps me to drift off to sleep.

    there are few by Brian Eno that might be worth trying, such as Music For Airports.

    I agree, try listening to gentle music whilst closing your eyes.

    Normally works for me.
