Demons Await

Every nightmare is different.

In the middle of the night I stay awake

Eyes wide open until the day breaks

Cuz when I go to sleep I’m in another place

Sucked by darkness as the demons wait


Close my eyes and I’m paralyzed

All my demons are ready to terrorize

They’re all ready to torture me until I die

But I can’t die in my dreams cuz I’ll die in real life


The red eyes are gleaming and the foul breath comes steaming, my god I must be dreaming, fuck these demons, I’m screaming


Shh, hold on, it’s too quiet

They wait for the chase in silence

As I stand in my closet in hiding

Dream’s changed, now I’m flying


But my mind, it plays tricks, now I’m falling

I’ve lost all control without warning

All this pain from the rocks, I’m absorbing

Come to a stop, see the demons, now I’m running


The red eyes are gleaming and the foul breath comes steaming, my god I must be dreaming, fuck these demons, I’m screaming
