Sleep Now and Forever


My eyelids want to go down
I want to sleep safe and sound
Away from you is what I need
Your hate's a different breed

I am so deep
in my sleep
I cannot feel the pain
That is good
on my account
you are too insane
Mad with power
you hit and strike
the pain comes rushing in
Then the tears
come rushing down you've commited a sin
You cuss and swear
I hide in fear
wanting to escape
The metal cage
you've kept me in
are about to break
But for now I'll go to sleep...for now and forever.

This wasn't supposed to be my happy ending.
As Death and Decay sing in choras.
I'm flying with them on black horses, into the dead night.
And with my old life behind me in flight.

My body is sleeping now and forever...
