Wake to find that it's followed you
Back from the other side of the river
Now it knows the way and
Next time it may not be alone

Deep in innocent slumber, you crossed unknown terrain
Like a child in a labyrinth, something must guide you back if you do not know the way

Through the darkness
Sailing blindly
Into the nightmare
And it's followed you home

Now your eyes have seen
What most can only hope to dream
But will it save you, or destroy us all?

Letting go of your body, suddenly you found a way to slip through
You would never have taken that daunting first step if you'd known what awaited you

You found yourself upon the doorstep of somewhere you do not belong
You've not yet earned your passage, you begin to realize something's wrong
You can't seem to shake that feeling that somehow you're never quite alone
That sickening unearthly presence, these demons have now been tied to you

You've found... found a way... to pay the ferryman's toll
You've seen the distant shore through the eyes
Through the eyes of the crow

Without the weight of a heavy heart
Reality begins to fall apart
You've waited years to find your way
Seduced by dreams of bending time and space

Time and space
You've found a way to pay the ferryman's toll

Wake to find that it's followed you
Back from the other side of the river
Now it knows the way and
This time it's not alone

What you thought would be heaven is now hell on earth

Take a look at yourself through the eyes of the world. What will you be when all else is gone; when there's nothing left to lose, when there's no one left to kill?
