Altered States


Here I lay within the shadows of your domain

Timely whispers in dew drops comes the falling rain

Forgotten dreams of tainted castles drawing near

Icy waters falling underground forming to a tier

Sun shining through in decals of your innocence

Reflections in a glass existing in terminal immanence

Eyes into eyes a puzzle of deluded distrust

Cloudy figures in torrent dreams shattered into dust

Closing my eyes I start to fly away

Painted pictures telling me what they may

Bringing me through the bitter end of its bite

Trying hard to see without putting up a fight

The game has finished the time has come

I've led you to believe that I have won

The gates you have open are clearly to be

A world of dreams that you share with me

After time goes on and you set me free

I'll never forget how it's going to be

Closing my eyes you can set my fate

By opening the doors to an altered state

Now I lay within the changing shadows

Broken footsteps where the wind blows

Whispers in the rain comes falling underground

As icy waters tainted castles begin to drown

Decals of reflections of the sun shining through

Innocence existing in a glass I drew

Deluded distrust in a puzzle of eyes

Shattered dreams of disfigure are no surprise

Fly away pictures through a bitter end

Trying so hard careful not to defend

Bringing me closed eyes I start to see

Putting up a fight would only be with me

The game has finished the time has come

I've led you to believe that I have won

The gates you have open are clearly to be

A world of dreams that you share with me

After time goes on and you set me free

I'll never forget how it's going to be

Closing my eyes you can set my fate

By opening the doors to an altered state
