In the beginning all I hear is people singing
Deep and low with iron bells ringing
And there's a source of heat near my feet
I'm so weak I pass in and out of sleep

Flashes of light blotches of color
I yell out for help but it's drown out by weather
Downpour torrential, power of the vengeful
This was all triggered by the sub-conscious central

Sweet dreams are hideous lets not confuse those
Bad dreams will find you confine you to circles
Every other movement is slowed by your mind
That's why stabbing them blind is no crime

With no REM your bound to cave in
And life in the conscious life is quite grim
If I can't escape than I'll die in my sleep
'Cause the cliff is to steep and the waters to deep

Sound familiar bad dreams can kill ya
Deeper the sleep the realer, man I feel ya
Bad dreams sad scenes and fear
You don't want to have to wake up here

Bad dreams, you don't want to have to wake up here
Bad dreams sad scenes and fear
you don't want to have to wake up here
Bad dreams, you don't want to have to wake up here

I'm running down a hall with one wall of flames
With friends I've never seen in my life with strange names
Sound familiar bad dreams can kill ya
Pains not what it seems cold stares and sudden screams

I get in fights every night as I'm reflecting
Throwing punches fast hard as I can but not connecting
Them protected by a force field locked in an engagement
Until I see the color red when pounding heads into the pavement

Caught up in a chase scene or working on a plan
Sometimes I'm falling and I have to wake up before I land
Lots of doors to open afraid what I might find
My girlfriend getting fucked with eight more guys in line

Cant wait to rise and shine when ill thoughts are provoked
(Shane wake up)
My girlfriends right beside me getting choked
In real life plus I heard it could get worse
So much for walking in my sleep that's close to murder in the first

Sound familiar bad dreams can kill ya
Deeper the sleep the realer, man I feel ya
Bad dreams sad scenes and fear
You don't want to have to wake up here
Bad dreams, you don't want to have to wake up here

They say that most people can only dream in black and white
That's why he packs a knife and only reappears at night
I pray for the light to turn him back to stone
And shine bright enough so I can find my way home

Watching myself from above and just behind
Like I'm controlling video games inside my mind
Be careful what you dream for because it's right there
Sometimes day dreams turn into nightmares

I've prepared the chair
Electricity rumbles through the air
You don't want to have to wake up here, it's cold in the morning
Breath the eternal frost of our dawning

Plus it's dark and damp with slight hints of death
So cold I'm spitting icicles rip right through the flesh
Smoke forms with every breath the sound of children screaming
Pinch my self I have to wake up afraid of dreaming

Sound familiar bad dreams can kill ya
Deeper the sleep the realer, man I feel ya
Bad dreams sad scenes and fear
You don't want to have to wake up here

Bad dreams, you don't want to have to wake up here
Bad dreams sad scenes and fear
You don't want to have to wake up here
Bad dreams, you don't want to have to wake up here
