In my room, lying on my bed
The air is heavy, hot and still
Lady luck has left me or i'm under the wings of Destiny
Which is true I wait for time to tell

I dream the fog surrounds me
I dream this on a restless summer night
It cloaks-- it's all all around me
And when it's there I feel that all is right
You see the fog it frees me
When no one else can see me I can hide
I lie awake and dream that the fog rolls in...

My mind roams cross oceans and years
The time being's become a dead end
Last time I rolled the dice there flashed the eys of the snake
So I sit and wait for my turn to come round again

I dream the fog surrounds me
I dream this on a restless summer night
It cloaks-- it's all all around me
And when it's there I feel that all is right
You see the fog it frees me
When no one else can see me I can hide
I lie awake and dream that the fog rolls in...
...rolls in through the night
In the chill of it's caress everything is alright
But when the morning sun, my dreams burn away
They've vanished with the night

    General Commentor fog could just mean fog.

    if youve ever been outside really late on a summer night, there is actual fog which covers all things in the distance from your sight, or can cover you from the sight of others. knowing that no one can see you is a comforting feeling within itself, but when youre walking alone late at night, its like the world has gone to sleep and the night is yours. you can do anything.

    General Commenti really don't think there is any hidden meaning to this song... he's simply saying that when he is depressed he wishes he could dissapear into the fog, into the night.
    he is a child of the night, and he wishes he could hide and live forever in darkness.
