Fear Overtaking

No one gets you


You can't see why


All you want to do is hide


They yell and fuss


Your heart crumbles to dust


They curse and shout


Your fears, they mount


You just aren't good enough


Or so it seems


Retreat, my dear, to a world of dreams


And hope that they can stay away


Lest your dreams become nightmares


That haunt you so deep


Oh, those nightmares


That kill you in your sleep
