why am i so afraid to sleep

Written by: Robert Walker

why is this happening what is it all for 
 my nightmarish dreams of apocolytic war
 waking up at nights in cold sweat wanting to scream 
 comforted by the fact that it's just another bad dream
 i use to think that this was some kind of faze 
 that all my dreams were of my death or the end of days
 I've dreamed of being locked up for the rest of my life 
I've dreamed of me dying by the blade of someone's knife
 I've dreamed of the world being destroyed by one big boom
 cause by all the evil mankind has consumed
 I've dreamed of just lying there buried inside that box
 watching my soul slip away while my body rots
 I've dreamed of the time i just watch the world burn 
 i think in that same dream i seen the lord return
 I've dreamed of constantly running thinking i almost made it 
 and turning around and being decapitated
 i don't know what's worst i must admit 
 seeing me destroyed 
or the whole world demolished
 although  i pray that none do come to life 
there must be a reason for all my strife
