A Nightmare to Remember

I've got a nightmare to remember, I'll never be the same What began as laughter so soon would turn to pain The sky was clear and frigid, the air was thick and still Now I'm not one to soon forget and I bet I never will Picture for a moment the perfect irony A flawless new beginning eclipsed by tragedy The uninvited stranger started dancing on his own So we said goodbye to the glowing bride and made our way back home Life was so simple then We were so innocent Father and mother holding each other Without warning Out of nowhere Like a bullet From the night Crushing glass Rubber and steel Scorching fire Glowing lights Screams of terror Pain of fear Sounds of sirens Smoke in my eyes Sudden stillness wrapped in silence No more screaming No more cries Stunned and bewildered Cold and afraid Torn up and broken Frightened and dazed Stunned and bewildered Cold and afraid Torn up and broken Frightened and dazed Lying on the table in this unfamiliar place I'm greeted by a stranger, a man without a face He said, "Son do you remember? Do you even know your name?" Then he shined a light into my eyes and said "Take this for the pain" Hopelessly drifting, bathing in beautiful agony I am endlessly falling, lost in this wonderful misery In peaceful sedation, I lay half awake and thought of the panic inside starts to fade Hopelessly drifting, bathing in beautiful agony "Tell me, does this hurt you?" said the faceless man "Can you move all of your fingers? Can you try your best to stand?" I asked about the others "Is everyone okay?" He told me not to worry as he turned and looked away Hopelessly drifting, bathing in beautiful agony I am endlessly falling, lost in this wonderful misery In peaceful sedation, I lay half awake and thought of the panic inside starts to fade Hopelessly drifting, bathing in beautiful agony Day after day and night after night Replaying the events Did they ever see the red light? Over and over, scene by scene Like a recurring nightmare haunting my dreams How can you prepare for what would happen next? No son should ever have to see his father such a mess It's a miracle he lived, it's a blessing no one died By the grace of God above, everyone survived Life was so simple then We were so innocent It will stay with us forever A nightmare to remember
