Must not sleep. Must warn others
These lines are a reference to “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”. In the movie, the main character feels as if he has to warn the populace about pods that take over your mind and body when you fall asleep. Aes feels the same, but obviously not about alien pods.
Aes also has these lines tattooed on his arms.
