Flamed, the time when nearly changed
Still I was a slave, waiting to be saved
Dream, the body sleeps but I

Dream, dream your sins away
Sing your dreams away
Your holding back, still holding back Algier

But I

Heavenly demons outside my window
Sent here to see me outside this world
I call the shadow, you call the season
That's all it takes, woo ooo
