The Colour of Sleep Lyrics

1. The Colour of Sleep (5:05)
Sleep... for... life
Fear shreds your internal logistics system
You are just a pawn/fool, driven by a disturbance inside your mindscape
It is the consuming unknown that awaits you
And you cry for you cannot escape the ache...
...the void is nearly here...
Nerves are tested by a circumstance invented by the mere existence of our world
You can feel that there's something more than just progressing life
While your neighbour will deny, deny, deny!
You awaken and are shaken by the dim reality that becomes you
And consumes your mind
That death is real and you will soon hold it in
An embrace so tight you can't let it go
You want to believe in something higher
Social derision... blindfolded vision... need for decision...
Nothing's eternal... belief is infernal... your god is internal
You may not exist soon so enjoy it while you can
The power is in your hands in that deciding moment of your sad life
Controlled by a thing called time only fate's force can decide
Rotting before you've even died
Swept away by the fear inside
...sleep... lie!
This is something that they don't tell anyone when they're born, but
Once you think for yourself your test begins!
If you try you can suffer less if you deny
Looking at the sky, sky, sky!
You can read some else's way of getting by
But you'll have to buy, buy, buy!
It will soothe your pain, 'til you wake again
You will feel the reign of the dark
...they all believe in lies - lies - why?
Is it so hard for them to see logical reality
We bleed, we die
There's nothing once you've finished life
Tearing knife - wrists are sliced - decreased time
Those who can't defy
It is just a door that opens and swallows you inside
You are just another one of us
Don't think you get to decide
Don't think you'll wander somewhere when you're rotting in the ground
You'll be where there's nothing called taste, sight, feel, or fucking sound
Don't waste time, savour your life, it's all you have
As part of "man"... Now is the time to live for!
You are your guide for there's no one but you who can tell you how to be
I fear death so don't feel alone
I don't judge those who cry
We are all brothers in metal
We already rule the world now
...sleep... you're free!!!
The colour of sleep
