Dreams Run Wild

from by Brian McGrath

lyrics

Close your eyes
Rest your head
Broken thoughts better left unsaid

Crooked crosses
A burnt autumn sky
Strangers' faces lit by lantern light

Her body's burning
Her soul cries out
She says "I'm trying, but I can't go on"

Rivers rising
There's no higher ground
Shouts through the night no longer make a sound

So sleep awhile
Let your dreams run wild
While you can

Unholy nightmares born of your dreams
Lost all direction, caught in between

The bonds we've broken
Evil seeds we've sown
A peace of mind that we will never know

So sleep for awhile
Just sleep for awhile
Let your dreams run wild
Run wild!
Until it takes you by the hand
An endless life, bride to the damned
God, no!
And your heart beats slow
Then you're gone
