lyrics

Night Mares
Galloping through the dark
With roaring manes
Shriek into my sleep
And hurl me from my
Dream into reality
But only fiction makes sense now
Reason slips back and forth
From one corner to the next
Devious as a cat with a bad conscious
Always sliding by unnoticeably
Just when I ´ve realized its not where I am
It’s gone, again hiding in the shed
Vomiting into the rat’s race.
Why do I feel so forgotten in the face of evil
Where have all the heroes gone

But I don’t believe that God is dead
He is my neighbor feeding the cat
The grumpy grocer with his ancient baseball bat
The firefighter risking his life
And the mayor’s wife
I don´t believe that God is dead
He is the crazy lady wearing a wig
The nurse with the scabs in her face,
Leftovers from wearing a mask all day
And her innocent daughter
I don´t believe God is dead
He is the politician that cares
For the poor and the rich man
Who shares more than he can
Write off as a tax deduction
I don´t believe God is dead
He is a concept to aspire to
Not a religion or rigid faith
But a good hard look into your own face
And soul, have you met up with the
Challenge, what was the toll?
Did the scale tip or flip to your side?
But my dog howls
And the water sprouts up out of my
Sink into a boiling cascade that nobody drinks
And sometimes I feel as if I´ve
Been crying for years
Tears of wrath and distress
That suggest hopelessness
Fury is what I feel most oft the time.
Fury at the deceit, the cheap mime
The lies and the injustice
The moldy steak cut out of a dying cows thigh
Served on a golden platter
Garnished with rotting cheese
And sold as a delicacy
In our society
In which the bees are dying
On a scale so large
That the universe seems
Dwarfed by its obscenity.
Little bits of shiny metal
Swooping over my head in the sun
Are they the North Korean invasion or just
Poised forks ready to drop the bomb.
And yet I don´t believe that God is dead
His spirit is the beauty we had
And the hope still there
And an end to the nightmare.
