the nightmares deep inside of me

April 1, 1994

the nightmares deep inside of me
aren’t really all that bad
there’s not much in this dreamful mind
to make this grown man sad

i’ve fought with demons
i’ve stepped on satan’s toes
ive had bad luck on my side
when ive had plenty to lose

this man can be a demon
when he really wants to be
this guy’s a god damned lunatic
when he sets his true self free

im not about to let them say
what my life should do
i know some day ill shut them up
when i make my dreams come true

i jogged the path that took me here
although it was on fire
there’s no way to get me down
because each breath takes me higher
