Overkill III (Under The Influence) Lyrics

9. Overkill III (Under The Influence) (6:31)
Shall I wake or shall I sleep with dreams so warm, so soft, so deep?
A never ending tale enhanced, a never ending thought... entranced!
It's... entranced.!.

Take from me what you need, take my heart, my soul, my seed
A lasting presence inside my mind; at last a presence, a contract signed
Turned my back when I first saw you, turned to stone when I ignored you
Then something greater then my will turned me round to Overkill

From the shadows called my name, from the cold in to the flame
The wings around me kept me warm, through hollow eyes I was reborn
All around me once dispised could see the world now through his eyes
A people lead by blind ambition signed on for life, into submission

~Hear me~ I hear your call!
~Obey~ I'd give it all if all my dreams come to life
~Hear me~ I hear your call!
~Obey~ I'd give it all if all my fears come to light

Shall I wake or shall I dream? Shall I become just what it seems:
A never ending tale fulfilled, a never ending Overkill!?!

To see, to taste, to touch the world; in jaded glory danced and whirled!
To see it happen as was told as new beginnings now unfold
Light the sky, the glow above, see the bat, eat the dove
Another stage, completed mission; signed on for life into submission

~Hear me~ I hear your call!
~Obey~ I'd give it all if all my dreams come to life
~Hear me~ I hear your call!
~Obey~ I'd give it all if all my fears come to light
