In the heat of the moment
In the eye of the storm
When the high tide turns around
I tread water waiting to be found
In the dream of the shepherd
In the blood on the thorn
When the warships run aground
I breed monsters feeding on the drowned

I seek sanctuary
Take me in
Keep me safe

I seek sanctuary
Take my sins
Keep my faith

Squaring circles cutting ice
Hacking numbers telling lies
Dreaming nightmares waking up
Twisting shouting dying twice
Little poems from the skies
Fading daydreams falling down
In the daze of confusion
In the glare of the glow

When the demons comes unbound
I dive under drowning out the sound

In the noise of the silence
In the force of the blow
When the towers tumble down
I sink further going underground
Can't keep the pace
These demon days
Are piling up like
Falling towers everywhere

I could regret or try to forget the little things
That bind my mind to my memories
But I know that down below the pain remains
In different shades and shapes

I need to sleep
I have to stop and catch my breath
And view the world with my eyes closed
I close my eyes
