Gasp awake, It's all a dream
Awful memory still haunting me
The evil thing that I've become
My mind has become undone
Release it from your soul, before it takes control
I stutter just to speak & fall to my knees

The eye calls my name
Visions driving me insane
I don't know where to run
I've lost control, what have I done?
Lucid atrocities , bring me to my knees
A tingle up my spine, it's hard to face what I've left behind.

Walking through these desert sands
I'm alone in this wretched land
I see a figure up ahead
A man who I misread.
Old & grey he sees my pain
Offers me a chance to drift away
Take a drink & settle your mind
Be ready to leave this world behind!

Let's go!
I feel it coming on
The shadows are close
And the dawn is gone
The night is all I have left to fear
As it pulls me in & I can't hear
I try to scream
But there's no sound
I cannot move, no I am bound
I curse that man in a dismal rage
A war with myself I'm about to wage

Fixed on a light, trapped in time
An urgent fear I try to fight
I lose my breath, the end of my plight!

To this day I won't forget
Waking alone as I'm drenched in sweat
Whispers gone, nothing left to fear
But I still feel a presence near
I guess I'll never know
That man who cleansed my soul
His tea so bitter sweet, took an evil that haunted me!
