Planes falling from the sky.
darkness all around me.
everyone’s eyes are filled with fear.
fear, fear is all I see.

I hide in a corner and wait for it to pass.
but the darkness, just will not leave.

can this be really happening,
this fear, I just can’t believe.

I gather everyone, I must protect them.
this fear, I won’t let it win.
men in shadows, come to destroy.
But I go right to them, I confront my sin.

I open my eyes, it happened again.
a terrible dream, that felt oh so real.
a message must be trying to be sent.
but what is it, was it really a dream?
