"Blanket of Fear" as written by and Jerry Horton Jr Tobin Esperance....
Well I'm awake under this blanket of fear
Go outta my sight
None of the people I see be lying
Now I'll be once asleep
I'm awake and I'm dreaming
I believe it's time for the rude awakening

[Chorus]
So hold on to your dreams
Because your nightmares might seem like your reality
Hold on to your dreams
Because your nightmares might seem like your reality

I believe the only thing we have to fear is
Fear itself, and the man behind the content
I heard him say: dreamers are becoming endangered species
And I'm aware of the rude awakening

[Chorus]

I'm falling in my dream; I finally hit the ground
I'm falling in my dream; I finally hit the ground
I hit the ground
Because I, I can't keep my mind from going into dark places
â??Cause I, I can't keep my mind, we're going into dark places

[Chorus]

I'm falling in my dream, I finally hit the ground
I'm falling in my dream, I finally hit the ground

    General CommentI think this song is about not giving your dreams/wants up even if you've hit rock bottom, and your life just seems like a nightmare. And even if your dream falls apart, you can still go for other dreams even if it seems like all the good stuff is over.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song! It has to be one of the sweetest and sickest songs lyrically on the album. This song and Getting Away With Murder definitely have a really evil, sick feel to them.

    I'm not really too sure what this song is about although I think it might be something to do with politics...he's "awake under the blanket of fear" but everyone else is asleep. Just a thought...

    General Commentwhen nightmares become life and you can't escape them even by being asleep, a harsh reality.

    General CommentI love their music with a passion. But most of their songs bring back such hard times and horrible memories that im trying to forget. Their songs throw me back into those times when I was at rock bottom and my life was hell. Their songs gave me strength when I was at my worst. Their album 'Getting Away With Murder' changed my life.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, if you ever felt fear for anything, or weren't ready to take risks, this song means a lot to you. It's about not giving up, when your dreams are not working out, or when the nightmare becomes reality. It pretty much means that if a nightmare can be true, so can a dream, but you gotta hit rock botton (wake up and come back to reality) to make it.
    LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

    General CommentI am awake
    Under this blanket of fear
    And I must say
    None of the people I see belong here
    Now everyone's asleep
    But I am awake and I am dreaming
    I believe it's time for the rude awakening


    So hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality
    Hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality

    I believe
    The only thing we have to fear is
    Fear itself, and the man behind the curtain
    I heard him say: dreamers have become an endangered species
    And I am aware of the rude awakening

    So hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality
    Hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality

    I'm falling; in my dream I finally hit the ground
    I'm falling; in my dream I finally hit the ground
    I hit the ground

    Because I, I can't keep my mind
    From goin' into dark places
    Because I, I can't keep my mind
    From goin' into dark places

    So hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality
    Hold on
    To your dreams
    Because your nightmares
    Might seem like they're your reality

    I'm falling; in my dream I finally hit the ground
    I'm falling; in my dream I finally hit the ground

    Aces song. :) Never give up, no matter how bad shit seems. XD Because it will get better; you'll land on your feet when you hit the ground.
