I hear a voice speaking softly amidst the breathing
An invitation to a place where hearts are breathing
To a place where your dreams are made
Where songs are played
Where drinking never ceases and no dismay
I'm pushing my senses away to take another step
With my conscience aware of my heart's intent
I feel a whisper, a friendly voice start to rise
"Indulge until your heart's content and pay no mind.
Tomorrow is a lifetime away and this is here.
The time is now, so there's nothing to fear."
This hint of disaster is a beautiful face
Hiding grins, fronting the chills of warm embrace
"I'll take you to a place where chimes are ringing
To a place with a chill where souls are singing
I'll bring you to a state of nightmares clinging
Where your innocence dies with lies I'm bringing"
I'll take you to a place lying six feet below
Where bodies lie cowering soft and slow
And where the song of the chimes keeps ringing
And outside the window the demons are singing
I see the faces aware but the room is empty
And now I'm owned by my lifeless stare
My shelves are bare
I'm dreaming about a second chance to go back
Rewind the clock and attempt a playback
"Follow me to pain and I'll show you"
