OPIATE DREAMS

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

Smoke clouds around me
My head is on fire
I'll never weaken
I never will tire

Opiate dreams
Send me far in the night
To lands of new fantasies
Red, blue, and white

Children about me
I pay them no mind
E'en though I love them
And with them, I'm kind

Opiate dreams
Send me love from afar
A land of burnt fantasies
Broken and charred

New things aesthetic
Creep into my brain
Sometimes I think
That I'm going insane

Opiate dreams
Are my one solitude
In the land of bright fantasies
One dreamy mood
