This was a one off horribly vivid dream I had about 10 years ago. The dream was so real that I spent the rest of the day after waking up around my parents for fear of being attacked by the same invisible force. The fear of being asphyxiated is one that has stuck with me since this dream. I wouldn't wish being strangled to death on anyone after having it simulated in my sub-conscious. I did my best to convey both the fear of being strangled and the fear of running for your life in the song. I hope you enjoy it.


It was a nicer dream that quickly went astray
My gentle consciousness keeps pleasant thoughts away
I feel cold clammy hands denying me of air
I kick and scream and shout but there’s nobody there
I feel my lungs go dry my breath just doesn’t last
The world gets darker I can feel it fading fast

The whole world fades
I’ll be erased
And I descend
Is this the end

Oh dear lord please have mercy on my soul
I feel the deathly hands gently let me go

I know that it wants blood and that blood is mine
I feel an awful chill running down my spine
I can hear a breathing and I know that it’s near
Death and heavy footfalls is all I can hear
I cannot look behind me there’s no question why
All that I can do is just run and cry
I have to keep on running ‘cause I don’t wanna see
The horrid twisted face of what wants to kill me
And I want out

Let me out
So I scream
Scream and Shout

I can hear it coming ‘cause it’s right behind
I just need a place that is hard to find
I’ll just close my eyes and sit and pray
Please somebody turn this night to day
And I want out

Let me out
So I scream
Scream and shout
