Sleep No More

Wretched sky, you who blow these
Winds of change, hear me now!

Take back your darkened hearts
Where greed and evil feast
Upon your sheep!

Gone, the days of laughter and

Our enemies are close now
Herding their prey for the coming

Like puppets, we twist and dance to

Scripted and cast like poisoned seeds
Sprouting lies and confusion
Through voices at their command

Awaken from your slumber!
Cast off your cataracts!

The terror train is about to depart
Do not climb aboard!
Death awaits!

Open your eyes!
Live free!
