Awaking into Nightmare:


Hypnos the great entering the stage
Covering my eyes with blackest coat
Breathless I sink into cruel sleep
Tightening its straps round my throat
Unbearable burden rests on my chest
I drift away
Into the night
I drift away...

 

All life has frozen
Pain is all that´s left
Senseless war surrounds me
I can´t see dark nor light

 

Will time heal?
Will it allay the pain in me?
A place not cold nor warm
All misty twilight

 

Cruel nightmares
Are haunting
So deep in me – so deep in me

 

And fire fading
Despair growing
Darkness rising
Into the realm of sleep

 

Am I awake or do I sleep?
Invisible claws pierce my flesh

 

All life just seems sorrow
Pure darkness pounding within
They say that time would heal
But it just teaches to deal

 

Deep into the yonder I ride
Approaching my certain end
On into my death I ride
Come shelter by decline

 

Cruel nightmares
Are haunting
So deep in me – so deep in me

 

And fire fading
Despair growing
Darkness rising
Into the realm of sleep

 

So deep

 

Hypnos calls for me!

 

Dying trees on rotting soil
Purgatory dawn
In these forsaken lands
Where I am caught

 

The beast within is still hungry

Once more it must break free
I´m dreaming myself to death
I must awake

 

Cruel nightmares
Are haunting
So deep in me – so deep in me

 

And fire fading
Despair growing
Darkness rising
Into the realm of sleep

 

Am I awake or do I sleep?
Lost in this meta-world
Invisible claws pierce my flesh
Great burden of grief

 

Is this my time to leave?
To sink into eternal sleep?
To shake off time, pain and lust?
Or is it time to withstand
Hypnos´ dark eyes?
I must not drift away!!!
