Just a rough demo track of a new song.


Forgotten dreams, drift through the sea, clinging to the shoreline, thrown against the rocks.
Eyes hollow from the torment, compass spins in all directions, the wind sighs in mourning, time erodes before the march of what awaits us all.

No way to stay afloat, to keep your dreams alive.
Drowning in your loss of worth.
Nightmares stalking, consciousness grows dim.
Drowning, in your loss of worth.
Take a deep breath the water's getting deeper.
I am home.

Awash with fear, of the trails that lay ahead, to brave the seas of the unknown.
Lost inside myself, blinded by the fear, paralyzing the senses.
My will dissolves before my eyes, water fills my lungs , one last look at the sun, I plunge into darkness.

I had a dream last night. I dreamt I was a dove flying over the sea. And then I dove into the ocean... And I swam with the dolphins. I was two animals joined as one... which meant good things are coming. Good things.
