"Stay Out Of My Dreams" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
I shan't think of her when I'm awake
However in sleep I can't escape
A Coney Island high when I get inside
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

Near the streets of Richmond and Hyland
Dwells the Princess of Staten Island
A seven dollar toll will get me in her hole
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

Though long gone, she won't let me forget
When at night I wake up in her sweat
A lonely Brooklyn troll, a ghost of Red Hook old
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

With your straight black hair and emerald green eyes
Hippies pointing 'That's Pete's sister in disguise'
Maybe you had uttered those words as a jest
I don't mind the allegations of incest

At the time I thought I could love no other
'Till I heard you say I was your brother
In your e-mail said how much we look like twins
How it turned you on just knowing it's a sin

Stay out of my dreams

    Song FactAbout this song, Peter Steele said:: « Stay out of my Dreams » is about a girl I loved very much, but I haven't seen her for five years now. I still think of her, and most of all, I still dream of her. I can't say her name, but, fuck, I think of her. [...]The end of the song uses the final chord of ''A Day In the Life' of the Beatles. »

    Translated quote from the french Hard Rock Magazine, #63, december 2000.

    General CommentThere just aren't enough incestuous love songs. Goth-metal god Pete Steele is in love with a lady who haunts his dreams, and who's resemblence to him brings to mind thoughts of kinky, sinful incest.

    General CommentIts about a girl whom he loved, a girlfriend. He became wary of her jokes about how they looked related, and he ultimately broke it off cause she was a little too into the idea of incest. Source: interviews and his general trend of dating girls with weird preferences.
