It's Me and My Mind

There’s something about it
These nights and me
we get along just fine
it’s me and my mind
that makes me wonder
yeah it makes me wonder

When my heart beats hard
that harsh pain in my chest
and the monsters visit
they look like you

Oh sleeplessness
leave me alone
you bring the shadows
kind to flesh and bone
but my soul,
me and my mind
we can’t hide
oh sleeplessness
leave me alone

I wish I could run
run away
from this darkness
from this strain

But this darkness
oh it is me
its me and my mind
ripping the seams
it’s my own terror
killing the dreams

Oh sleeplessness
leave me alone
you bring the shadows
my heart’s a stone
but my soul,
me and my mind
we can’t hide
oh sleeplessness
leave me alone

I’m lost in my own room
trapped by them, screaming
oh but it’s just me and my mind
stuck here bleeding
The doors close but not my eyes
there it goes, there goes my mind

Is this fate?
Or is it a curse?
Either way I’m doomed,
There’s no rest on this Earth

Oh sleeplessness
leave me alone
you bring the shadows
I’m a danger zone
and my soul,
my dark dark soul,
me and my mind
we can’t hide
oh sleeplessness
leave me alone

But you can’t go
Can’t leave me alone
Because you, sleeplessness,
You’re all I know

When you say there's no rest on this Earth i think it would sound better as there's no rest for me on this Earth. And is there any other word besides sleeplessness you could use cause it sounds kinda strange. But anyway, this is a good first draft, it just needs some improvments.
