Dreams Of A Real Life
A dream that I was dying, killed
Murdered by a friendly hand
The fact my life was threatened, willed
Upon me not by my demand
Made me start to cry and beg
My friend to spare my life. Oh, please!
But he had shot me in the leg
Before I could get on my knees
I don't remember when I died
I woke before the killing shot
Now in my earthly bed I hide
From death, I've learned that I am not
Prepared for what comes after this
I need to repent for my sins
This preparation I can't miss
Grenades erase, so pull the pins
Enough with losses, time for wins
Never too late to start anew
Throw regret in garbage bins
A burden shared is split in two
Friend who killed me in my dream,
I will not share my life with you
Fruition won't come your scheme
Prepare, my friend and foe, to fight!
