Waking from a nightmare

Is like rising from the dead

There’s a pounding in your skull

As you lie there on your bed

Pictures blind your heart

As horrors fill your sight

Here you are the audience

To the cadence of the night

But this show is repetitive

Though you wish to make it stop

Just as the flashbacks finish

They restart, from the top

And your whole life plays before you

All the embarrassing things you’ve done

The biggest scares, the saddest fears

The battles, lost and won

You’re straddling two worlds

When you awaken from a dream

But remember, whether here or there,

Nothing’s as it seems
