Deep asleep my heart stops beating
why am I here this is a mistake
Lost in darkness my skin is freezing
I fell asleep but did I wake

I do remember a porcelain plate
I held a cup I ate and drank
Was it dinner that sealed my fate
Hemlock soup with a Death Cap steak
Poisonous dreams betrayal and scheming
Oleander tea with a Ricin cake

Looking down I am not breathing
I feel no sorrow if it ends today
I see her face but she's not speaking
as I drift into the dark decay

Dark clouds crackle and shutter
a celestial throne splits the sky
Man cowers from the churning vortex
a monstrosity covered in a million eyes
Wheels spinning around a golden alter
crushing bone, crumbling stone
A symbol of justice begets a reckoning
eagle, ox, lion, man
prostrate before the ethereal King

Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely
Do you know you are not the only one alone
as your blood flows down the drain

You live your life the only life you are given
I understand this aching pain you are feeling
You are not alone as you face the darkening day
I am here to stay

Look in the mirror at the blade you are holding
and what you chose as your goodbye clothing
Does the throbbing make the pain go away
as you float away

Down the drain you will bleed
I will chase down your memories

Are you feeling sad are you depressed and lonely
Do you know you are not the only one alone
as your blood flows down the drain

(chorus)
Am I dreaming
I know that you are not alone
Am I dreaming
So many ways to go on
in this life that you know

I close my eyes and look above
I know this time I am not dreaming
I look above and close my eyes
is this the time I will be leaving
I know it's time for DMT
magic in my memory
I know their eyes do look at me
I see the road is never ending

(chorus here)

Standing on a cliff of diamonds
I look down and see the world
Standing on a cliff of diamonds
I look down and see the world

When I was a little boy
These creatures came to me at night
when I was a little boy
they took me to a place of magic

(chorus here)

I was sleeping in a world of my own
I was grieving and I couldn't let go
of the demons that were inside of me
Am I dreaming when I am awake
DMT

I close my eyes and look above
I know this time I am not dreaming
I look above and close my eyes
is this the time I will be leaving
I know it's time for DMT
magic in my memory
I know their eyes do look at me
I see the road is never ending

So you brought a pen to a knife fight
you who write with brilliance
No need to fret
I guarantee you leave a legacy
life is not through with you yet

Your nouns have purpose
you who suffer every time you write
I swear this to you
every verb has profound meaning
let your poetry ignite the mind

I promise you this
draw from the passion you find in life
your adjectives will live forever
A spider web spinning digital dreams
each conjunction you weave lingers on

So you chose a pen to to conduct your life
choose each adverb wisely
You who creates poetry brilliance
For the legacy you leave with words
is how the world will remember you

One makes you tiny
the other makes you oh so tall
One makes you happy
the other makes your body fall
Join me in Wonderland
and I will show you something special
Join me in Wonderland
but leave your ego at the door

The nether world will greet you when the last grain of sand drops
within the magical hour glass inside our makers thoughts
Layer after layer we shed our fear till the ego is found
Drowned by the light of a supernova
shattered loud with a glorious sound

(chorus)
Walk with me through the Looking Glass
leave your body behind and join me at last
Lay with me and forget the past
tonight the sky ignites over Wonderland

For you my friend I'll bake you a cake and
cover it with spice
One slice will change your life
The White Rabbit never lies
And then you wake up
now your mind is free
your finally free
You can see together we
form a river of energy

(chorus here)

Laying down on my bed of shame
I feel that nothing ever stays the same
Oh I'm laying down on my bed of shame
I feel so much inside
this never ending pain

I'm looking at myself through the mirror in my bathroom
I glance up on the shelf and see a box that's painted green
I look inside and find an egg that glowing oh so pretty
I take it to my room and place it on my pillow gently

That night I fell asleep and dreamt of dancing magic mushrooms
and then I woke to see my precious egg was cracked and broken
As bright as two sunrises in the middle of my room these eyes were glowing
what a beautiful surprise I see a baby dragon smiling at me

Do you feel alone in an ocean full of people
Have you always known that earth is not your home
We are both the same together we'll be happy
in a magic place a world we call our own

With one swoop of her wings she flew above me
then let out a stream of fiery rings
is this happening to me?
This is a gift for a king and queen
am I lost in a magical dream
is this happening to me?

(Chorus)
I ride my dragon through space and time
together we will shine
in a world beneath the ocean
under the nether sky
My dragon you are my friend
together we will fly
to a world of magical wonder
under the nether sky

Have you ever wanted someone you can call a friend
depend on them no matter what
a good companion
always there through thick and thin
My dragon is the only friend
that will be with me to the end
and when that day comes she will lift me
far away

I smite her with out a flicker of remorse
so in exile I shall remain

Web caught trembling prey
blistering sadness shallow grave
Repulsive rotten ***** stench
locked box of putrid sorrow
Blood clot hidden trench
vile secretion burrow

Wolf dressed goblin *****
muttering incantations
Teetering on a broken fence
seething hatred regurgitation
Greedy, evil, spineless, *****
cunning, patient, *****

One head liar
two face succubus

Speech craft forked tongue
slithering witch, foul gargoyle
Rebuke venomous, castrate hung
stoke the funeral pyre

Incubate the serpent fetus
demon, devil, fire
Never more sinister toil
bone covered soil

Death to the succubus
Death to Venus
