Fell asleep and woke up screaming,
You were there beside me dreaming
While we lay with reality streaming
On either side of the bed.
Phantoms through my psyche streaking,
You held me close to still the shrieking
The weight of it set your bones to creaking
And started pounding in my head.
We know our senses are deceiving
The only truth is in believing
That victory is achieving
Indifference to the dead.
