My eyes were burning Rain washed down my face and coated my skin Like slime on a frog's back It stung. Oh, how it stung! The water was clear and fresh, but to me it was like acid Stripping flesh from the bone I came to in an instant and saw eyes staring - wary The vision was gone, but the pain... That burning remained Is it gone? Is it gone? Get to your feet or abscond Is it real? Is it real? Embrace the pain, accept and yield This curse is yours forevermore All this confusion! Incessant voices and crowds blocked my way Can't you see the alarm!? It screams like a siren forced to your ear! They looked on with disdain, the fools You will be ripped apart! Turn heel and run from this black art! My hands were withered - strangers' limbs I did not recognise My body transformed - a hardened husk crackled as I shook This cannot be real I clawed at my form and again it was soft, raw Blood began to run, and crimson dropped to the floor Is it gone? Is it gone? Get to your feet or abscond Is it real? Is it real? Embrace the pain, accept and yield I turned to see a ghostly figure Sand dripped from its eyes and they fixed my soul with a glare Pain gripped my body and every sinew strained to escape this dark fate I broke his stare and ran Frightened faces leapt from my path, as sand whirled up in a storm The wailing was deafening! I clasped my ears and stumbled on The ground streaked with blood The air thick and bilious Shadows gripped my neck and I screamed All was black as the darkness enveloped me Madness consumes - the blood red moon's release I looked around and all was lost It took the grains of sand and slipped away 'Forget your brothers, they are gone' it said 'Sealed in glass 'till the end of days' Sealed in glass 'till the end of days
