Dark Nightmare


Velcro ripping at my heart,
paper melting in the rain,
I can see better in the dark
but how can I get away?
If I was a butterfly
you'd just get a net,
if I had nine lives
you'd get extra bullets
how can we escape
if we don't know what we're up against?

I can see better in the dark
but what dimension are you in?
Out of the corner of my eyes
I can see your dagger glimmering
if you take away my sight,
I can still hear everything
and if you cut off my ears
I'll just glue them on again
Oh, I can see better in the dark,
so you can never win.

Evil things are everywhere
they creep into your dreams
they trap you in the shadows
so you can never wake
but we know exactly what they are,
Depart, in Jesus's name
they try to take away your prayers
so they can make you afraid
but I can see better in the dark,
so you will never get away.

    Night mare, a wild horse running rampart in your dreams trampling all tranquility and in the daytime it's a white steed, at night a ring wraith ridden demon frothing at the bloody nostrils.
    Only light will eradicates the shadows, light from outsde or inside you.
    But nightmares are informative also. They tell us who we are , and of our fears. Our fears protect us.
    And they prepare us also.I used to think of death stoically, that I would face it fearlessly.
    Then one nightmare I saw myself die and felt all. The main emotion of death was fear.Fear that this was my last
    breath, my last heartbeat, and my last thought...which was all out pure fear.
    Now I know more of death because of my nightmare.
    Daymare, nightmare...everywhere. (Report) Reply
