Lying in bed, not quite awake--
Screams in the night.
Screams no one else can hear but me
I can't pull out of this dream--
The blood dripping everywhere.
Down the walls, over the floor,
Seeping through the cracks.
Feeding the evil that is there
Why can't I wake up?
The screams are so loud,
I don't know where to turn.
Can't get away,
Can't stop it.
Can't someone come wake me up?
And Sadam's maniacal laughter in the background.
He watches as they are being tortured
Will I never wake up?
