The sandman came, as sandman do

dropping slumber in my eyes

stole the innocence I knew

and sowed a thousand grains of lies


so I walked the world asleep,

amidst a land of frozen souls

and gathered hope in desperate keep

to fill the void in endless holes


one day I woke, a day of years

and sight aware to understand

and saw through cries and twisted fears

I slept a boy;and woke a man


I went to sleep a boy and woke a man


From my compilation:Until I am Empty
