stolen memories lyrics – abraxas

i wake up soon before the dawn brakes
what’s this place where am i?
i squat alone in the corner of any room
a fear to run a fear to hide

sweat ice-cold it runs down on my neck
the door is locked barricades beside
oh god is this my own house?
who has this done perhaps i myself?

[bridge:]
pieces of a dream come back to me
a dream so wonderful a dream so frightening
faces in my memories are p*ssin’ by
don’t know who don’t know where there are

dirty faces in the mirror deadly lookin’ down on me
empty rooms with white dressed people in a dessert far away
many needles in my arms headphones talkin’ low to me
and a wall of foreign memories hides a secret endlessly

faces in my mind are gettin’ clearer
some are friends some are really bad
we all share anything mysterious
a secret that’s stolen from my mind

[bridge:]
pieces of a dream come back to me
a dream so wonderful a dream so frightening
faces in my memories are p*ssin by
don’t know who don’t know where they are

[refrain:]
feel it coming step away from me
stolen memories won’t come back to me
