Cruxshadows: Insomnia lyrics

You're lying awake
The room is different
The walls dissolve
Replaced by sky
Horizon blackening
Twilight beckoning
As the clouds are stretching wide
Stars still shining
Little holes
That light is clawing to get through
But hope is shifting
With the shadows
That are drifting on the ceiling as you move

(Shh... just close your eyes and go to sleep
There's nothing to be afraid of...)

Are you awake?
Sour thoughts are dancing now
All around your head
Shoulders shake, chattering teeth
The cold wind rips the covers from your bed
The apparition
The eyes are digging
Heart is pounding
Eyelids will not close
Your voice is failing
The screams derailing
And she stands so near to you

And nothing is sweeter
Than the songs you're seeing
Begging for the colder hand she hides
Her soul is hunting
White lights breaking
And fluid cries
She is reaching
And the haunting
No one knows
A kiss-like smile that leaves you beguiled
Fading darkness and the whispers of a ghost
