[Tabs] It all began with silence, from under my covers I seen the sight The darkest cloud marching proud through another sleepless night As I lie awake in bed, cursing the hate that aches my head My thoughts gathered 'round to hear an earth shattering sound that could wake the dead I was weak and powerless, it's a tedious deep an*lysis Wanna leap to my feet but can't speak of of sleep paralysis There was a fire deep inside and it began to melt my core Then I felt something in myself that I had never felt before I was helpless, I felt it all in my bones Thunder clapped, the Son is back and now he's calling me home I felt in view with heaven's consciousness And these thoughts moved upon me like tsunamis that will soon consume the seven continents Left in astonishment, and maybe it's only right At last my soul can bask in the glow of this radiant holy light I know I got to accept it, this is knowledge perfected I'm lost in His voice, my only choice is to follow the Sheppard Such sights He brings before me so I'm forced to sing the story Riding high through a violet sky on giant loons of glory The sight I saw was ?? by the Bible's estimation But the fear was primal when we reached the final destination And it's way beyond any potential ride I could pencil out I'm out my mind I guess I gotta climb the steps of the temple now Start my quest towards the architect before the darkness sets And if I look deep within my heart, starts to spark and char my flesh Then the Son speaks "Father, one of your sheep has cometh" I feel the Holy Spirit alive in me when I finally reach the summit He said this was the point where most have eventually gone astray Cuz from here on out you're on your own, then He sent me on my way Walking down the darkest corridor that I ever saw before With plan to touch the purest call of the grand orbiter More and more I'm unsure what this court of law is called But damn as my chore I side to make the ?? ?? ?? All in all it's nothing but I swear as I write these letters That faithful night I gained the sight that would change my life forever And it's never been clearer, I'm just a mirror of its presence The mere sound of His voice, it hoist my spirit to the essence Starring into my eyes like why your wings have grown He grabbed my outstretched hands with a plan to bring me home To the land of things unknown so I can stand with kings on thrones I chose to stay amongst the heartless, armed with only a slaying stone He said these worldly ways would lead me to an early grave The weight of those words shook me as He took me to the pearly gates But after the mission was done I asked if I could bring some of my brethren He said it's only a mission for one into the kingdom of heaven So I started weeping, the Son of man was leaving He said follow me to the motherland where you understand the meaning And you don't succumb to plans from the under hand deceiving I'm thinking this is another scam, but on the other hand I'm dreaming "When I finally woke up, I was like, whoa, that wasn't a dream, that was a visitation to this real place, the land of the dead." "So what happened? I mean how did you finally get out of it?" "Oh man. It was just like one of those like life altering experiences. I mean I could never really look at the world the same way again, after that." "Yeah, but I mean like how did you, how did you finally get out of the dream? See, that's my problem. I'm like trapped. I keep, I keep thinking that I'm waking up, but I'm still in a dream. It seems like it's going on forever. I can't get out of it, and I want to wake up for real. How do you really wake up?" "I don't know, I don't know. I'm not very good at that anymore. But, um, if that's what you're thinking, I mean you, you probably should. I mean, you know if you can wake up, you should, because you know someday, you know, you won't be able to. So just, um ... But it's easy. You know. Just, just wake up."
