Faithless - Insomnia

According to Wikipedia, the song features Maxi Jazz singing as an insomniac while he struggles to sleep ("I toss and I 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").

The subject is resonant with fans of dance music, since stimulant use is common in club/rave culture, and insomnia a normal side effect. The insomniac is also rather destitute ("Make my way to the refrigerator/One dry potato inside, no lie, not even bread, jam...").
