The dread of death encroaches on my mind
A freezing sweat is dripping down my spine
This prison cell creates a lasting bind
It’s my own consciousness that keeps all hope confined

The moments before sleep haunting a child’s mind
Questions about life, death, parasitic
Digging deeper and deeper still, evoking panic never before known
Anxiety is born

Living in fear this is despair
By my own nature I seek out a savior

Why should I care so deeply?
Should approaching death be so crippling?
For if there's no escaping
My life is mine to live
Controlling my own death

To free me from this hell
When hell is a life that is lived in fear
Too afraid of mortality
This is barely a reality

Never no never again
Should I lose sleep over that which I cannot defeat

Focus my mind; surrender to my ignorance
There's only time; our only value and expense

Haunted nightmare dreams
Keep on gripping tighter with its teeth
Wake me from this dream to find
Death staring back at me

Never no never again
Should I lose sleep over that which I cannot defeat
