The Dream Death of J Johnny Mackles

This song was created for Game of Bands round 254 : "Dream Sequence"

Lyrics:

Have you ever had a moment where everything seemingly stops?
Where all that you knew about yourself and your reality was thrown out the window?
Where the most incredible things you will ever see appear, transforming in nigh-infinite ways, before disappearing once more?
Where the true wonder and majesty of the universe and everything inside of it is, for however brief a moment of time, understood and appreciated?
Where fears and horrors unimaginable gain form and lurk just beyond your comprehension?
And then suddenly, when you have reached a point where you can no longer discern from the life you are living and the death you are experiencing, your alarm clock rings…

And you wake up

Closer inside
Beauty defied
All in the mind
All in the mind

God save the queen
Mercy on me
All in the mind
All in the mind

Separate enough
Thought not so tough
All in the mind
All in the mind

Nodding in shame
Not in the way
All in the mind
All in the mind

I appeared before the magical gates of Yesteryear, to provide council for the dwarven king. Upon entering, I was greeted by a world of caverns and crystals, the rush of metal and footsteps sweeping me away to the ramparts. They stood mighty at the walls, those dwarves, ready to defend them and themselves against the unending hoards of the undead. Zombies clawed at the stones, while skeletons rained hellfire with their bows. The dwarves would retaliate, of course, volleying and venturing and pushing back the creatures. Yet still, always more monsters would arrive, and always more dwarves would fall. By the end, only twelve remained. The Neverhiem. They became something more that night. The heroes who held. The legends of Yesteryear. Memories of a story in another life.

Closer inside
Beauty defied
All in the mind
All in the mind

God save the queen
Mercy on me
All in the mind
All in the mind

Separate enough
Thought not so tough
All in the mind
All in the mind

Nodding in shame
Not in the way
All in the mind
All in the mind

Sunrise is
Peaking through
Cold blinds
Guarding my room
Sit up
Check the time
7:30
I think I’m fine.
Could go back
Dream once again
But I'd rather
Get up instead.
[Exit]
