Someone's Nightmare

SOMEONE'S NIGHTMARE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Have you ever wondered
Have you ever thought 
You're not really who you are
Like an animal, you're caught
Trapped inside a vision
Living in somebody's mind
In the middle of somebody sleeping
And running out of time

Knowing when they wake up
You might yourself be dead
Or searching for an exit
Trying to escape from somebody's head

In the eye of someone's nightmare 
You try to scream but can't
You want to run into the sun 
But your feet are stuck in quicksand 
In the eye of someone's nightmare
You are itself the fantasy 
When you can't control the things you do
You never know but you could be 
In the eye of someone's nightmare

And so if it's true
I got to get out of you
I couldn't stand to be
The centerpiece of some little boy's dream
And if it's true
I figure that I am screwed
From here to there
I don't care
Anywhere
I got to get out of here

In the eye of someone's nightmare 
You try to scream but can't
You want to run into the sun 
But your feet are stuck in quicksand 
In the eye of someone's nightmare
You are itself the fantasy 
When you can't control the things you do
You never know but you could be 
In the eye of someone's nightmare

Could you just imagine
Could you so believe
You're not really who you are
Try but cannot leave
Lost inside a vision
Dwelling in another mind
A traveler of destiny 
And running out of time 

Knowing when they wake up
It just might be the end 
Nothing is the way it seems
And somehow you did descend

In the eye of someone's nightmare 
You try to scream but can't
You want to run into the sun 
But your feet are stuck in quicksand 
In the eye of someone's nightmare
You are itself the fantasy 
When you can't control the things you do
You never know but you could be 
In the eye of someone's nightmare
