TORMENTS COLD EMBRACE

I have been dreaming of breaking away from the bonds, bonds that tie me to a place that I don't belong.
Reality shaking the ground that I’m on, shaking the very foundation that holds my thoughts.
Creating cracks inside dreams leading me from peace, showing me things that I do not want to see.
What lies awake screaming, tearing after me, awaiting absolution willing to rend to be set free!

I see through eyes that have seen too many scenes of sightless self-destruction laced in malice that I run screaming from my memories, away from my mind, away from myself, away from my own.

Displays of immolation that I cannot bear to see another future failure to remember what I have forgot.
Broken from the onset living life to die in retreat from torment I create inside my thoughts.

Quaking with fury taking a shot at making my mind sleep when I’m not ready to lay down and die!

Chorus:
As I dream of a place, silent serene, and free of pain.
I lay inside my own mind, light and hope washed out by the rain.
As I dream of the place, where suffering stays down in the shade.
Colds in deaths eternal embrace, freedom spreading forth from my veins.

I start to see freedom is past and dreams are all I can try to hold dear until they fall away.
My mind shattered and I see the pieces start to crawl, moving out from me into the light of day.
In search of absolution, yearning to be whole, afraid annihilation will never let them come back home. Still holding hope that one day they will be embraced, puzzled back together, every piece in its place.

Further away from my grasp my mentality wants me no more, leaving me in the past to sit and scream all alone, into this tomb that had been my soul.

Displays of immolation that I cannot bear to see another future failure to remember what I have forgot.
Broken from the onset living life to die in retreat from torment I create inside my thoughts.

Quaking with fury taking a shot at making my mind sleep when I’m not ready to lay down and die!

Chorus
As I dream of a place, silent serene and free of pain.
I lay inside my own mind, light and hope washed out by the rain.
As I dream of the place where suffering stays down in the shade.
Colds in deaths eternal embrace, freedom spreading forth from my veins.
