"Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead" as written by and Chris/webster Barnes....
Why can't I breathe?
Still I see
Dead on the table.
Try to move; I'm not able to.

They said I have died.
I still felt alive.
I won't believe their lies.
I can still see through these
Eyes.

Help me, I'm not dead
Wake me from this hell.
Tell me I'm alive.
Dead.

Knives cutting into me.
Scalpels rip me.
Screaming into deaf ears.
Now they stop and see my
Tears.

Help me, I'm not dead
Wake me from this hell.
Tell me I'm alive.
Dead.

I can't stop the visions.
Stop the premonitions.

My soul can't escape
The boundary of my flesh.
My heart does not beat.
My spirit does not rest.

They said I have died.
I still felt alive.
I won't believe their lies.
I can still see through these
Eyes.

    General CommentThese are some of CC's best lyrics.
    They really give you an ominous premonition of dreadful terror just reading them.

    Knives cutting into me
    Scalpels rip me
    Screaming into deaf ears
    Now they stop and see my
    Tears

    Powerlessness described in grotesque detail.

    General CommentIt's about a man who has died, but he finds that his soul is trapped within his body, and since he is dead, he cannot control his body. However, he can still see, feel, etc.

    General CommentClose Aniland, but this man IS ALIVE, it is about a man that can not control his body through hypnogogic sleep paralysis. This is how people see Aliens. Just Google it, it is very real. The "experts" say to just ignore the terror when you enter, only a fool will. If you enter this stage of sleep through REM which can be onset by all types of doors that you have opened "IE" listening to this song, and not getting it. The only way to stop the hypnogogic demons of sleep paralysis is to proclaim Jesus is Lord. They will have to let you wake up with Jesus on you side. I know by experience NOTHING ELSE WILL WORK. This song can open your eyes or open a door where you can enter this. Beware you can not stop it without knowing the power of Jesus Christ.

    General CommentI'm sorry but... this song was pure trash. The guitar was boring, the lyrics were just retarded cookie monster sounds, and though the lyrics were decent, it didn't save this song. Where all the death metal bands that do the psycho from-the-throat lyrics?
