The Devil's Dream
A silent dream within my head;
Thousands of people lying dead.
Murder and mayhem everywhere;
No place to hide, not here nor there.
A child born with sightless eyes;
Only to hear the silent cries,
Of burning bodies and tortured minds;
With silent eyes forever blind.
As fire lights the darkened skies;
I see the shadows running by,
And hear the sounds of silent screams;
But can't awake these tortured dreams.
Wake me up, don't let me die;
As I scream out a silent cry.
Silent minds, silent cries,
Silent death, silent eyes,
Tortured souls, tortured screams,
You can't escape the Devil's dream.
