 ramblings and things

Fugue  - variation ii

In my dream they came and took me
But I awoke and shook my head
Taking both comfort and relief
From the warmth of my snug bed.

They were waiting for me
As I fell back into my sleep
And I struggled to awake
But I was down too deep

So I laughed at them
No matter how this seems
This is not my world
Just a world of my dreams

But they are reaching for me
I am fastened to the stake
And I struggle and I struggle
But I just cannot awake

If I am in my bed
And my world is the same
How can I feel the heat
From the fast approaching flame

Am I dreaming of a world
As I try to stay sane
As I scream in agony
From the searing pain

And they are chanting around me
And no matter how this seems
I am dying here alone
Trapped in my world .of dreams
