asleep lyrics – desultory

asleep again
darkness is ruling
within my mind
i feel i’m flying slowly
a dream so real
alive and frightening
a grotesque sight
my senses shiver deep inside

these nightly scenes
now twisting my eyes
i see it clear
painted up before me
forgotten place
buried beneath sea
mountain high
the lord of evil i behold

in silence i dream
of things yet unseen
through aeons i see
with closed eyes, in dreams

deep in me, cries
lame inside, dead
cannot fight

awake at last
i’m cold and shaking
so terrified
i stare at my own hands
i have created
deep in my sleep
a sick reflection
of the horrid things i’ve seen
