Welcome to my Nightmare

I hear my name being called in the night
Stephan, Stephan, Stephan
I wake in a sweat, knowing I belong here
Dead bodies trample upon me
As I begin to lose my mind
I hear my name being called
Stephan, Stephan
The ravens are here
To devour me whole
The bloody feast of holy knights
This insanity embraces me
Taking me away in clouds


Phantoms have pierced my eyes
The tears are bloody droplets upon my weary bones
As the stake is driven threw my heart
I am the poison hiding in the dark
A mask upon my face hides not my evil fate
Angels in virgin white, playing harpsichord
Looking down upon the beasts of burden
Knowing they too shall prey upon my soul
My mind has escaped this tormented earth
I am broken, and living on borrowed time
Love was the illusion of my youth
As the voices said overhead
Stephan Stephan Stephan
You can run from your mind
It will always capture your fear
Welcome to my nightmare
Forbidden dreams


Notes: Based on some songs written by a classically trained musician

    It's great to see 'Alice Coopers' song 'Steven' inspiring this piece. I used to sing this track to my son Steven when he was younger. Taken from 'Welcome to my Nightmare' great Album, cool poem Arthur, James..
