lyrics

This I have witnessed
In my twilight dreams
Those feverish visions haunt me even when awake
Where all the colours have faded
Where feathers cut like knives
Where I am alone yet in company
Of something that is not sealed

And every time I awake in sweat and know it's just a dream
How I wish to return there, where my sanity escapes me
To release this devilish anxiety

In the flickering candlelight I can sense there's something beyond
As I hear the howling outside I know it has begun

Little comfort in these pills
I take to keep my mind at bay
Slipping towards the border
These dreams have taken over

And every time I fall asleep I question if it's just a dream
How I wish to escape and stay awake
No longer they stay away
Even in the light of the day

Inside these walls of my mind something has been born
Something that has taken me beyond to the point where insanity embraces me

Too long too stretched my mind is giving in
I have gone too deep too many times
I no longer know if I'm awake or in sleep

A distant sound awakes me from my tortured slumber
I hear a knock on my door but not once nor twice but thrice
Who dares to disturb me in the heart of night?
As I approach the door opens revealing being that sends chills down my spine
A figure alarming yet so charming
I try to reach out but the vision escapes me
I hear the chanting and awake to my own scream

Gasping for air I realize it was just another dream
But where did that sound I heard come from
I open the door and stare it eye to eye
How could a thing so miss-shaped be alive
I bar the door and escape back to my bedroom
Where the breeze takes out the last burning candle

Oh dear god
How I have feared and waited this moment
I hear the sound of shattering wood
This time I know I'm awake

All the lights have gone out
my room is dark and dim
I know they are near for I can hear them singing
