full moon nightmare

there’s wisdom in the wind it comes and it goes
in all the confusion only spirit knows
in an hour of darkness when anger calls
calling out for clarity clarity for all

runaway runaway runaway wake yourself up
runaway runaway for the life of all of us
runaway runaway runaway wake yourself up
a life of abuse is a death in chaos

i had a full moon nightmare and i wasn’t alone
i wasn’t the main character but i felt the roar
i stood transfixed on the edge of the abyss
as a saintly figure turned to a demon with a hiss

there were faces in the trees midnight screams
waking up the children sleeping in their dreams

beware the lips that cover the fangs
putting voice to venom spitting in the night
beware of who will steal your soul
under the influence of someone something
you don’t want to know you don’t want to know

faces in the trees midnight screams
waking up the children sleeping in their dreams

with wisdom in the wind it comes and it goes
in all the confusion only spirit knows only spirit knows
