lyrics

Turns out I have no courage, followed the dark to dismay
In my disjointed panic, withered in time frittered away

All the time passed by me slowly
Yet in the pace I fell to the stray

I spent so much time in my dreams
I lost sight of the reality
I spent so much time in my dreams
I lost sight of it all

I lost so much time, chasing a false life
In each realm where I once reigned
Now I can’t sleep, nor can I die
I have lost all my control
I have lost all my control

Too fearful for the black silence of death
The perpetuity and hindrance of regret

Too fearful, such cowardice in me
The permanence, of my disbelief
Now in my age, I’m utterly incapable
Of satiation through sleep, or fixing the tearing seams

Turns out I was destined for failure, in my seminal quest for perfection
Where only in reveries anointed, was anything impeccable to me

All the time passed by me quickly
Waning into the disability of my age

Into the design, into the black light
The light keeping me from sleep

I spent my life lost in my dreams
Now I pay as death starts to creep
I spent my life lost in my dreams
Now I pay for this all
I spent so much time in my dreams
I lost my life
I spent so much time in my dreams
I lost it all

Death is no longer my choice, it escaped through my hands
I can’t escape in slumber, can only accept the end
