Verse:
1.Can't understand what is happening to me, this isn't real, this is only a dream
2.I have a lust for the earth below and hell itself is my only foe
3.My body tingles I feel so strange I feel so tired I feel so drained

but I never felt no I never have felt this way before
cause I've no fear of dying I'll go when I'm good and ready
and I wonder if I'll ever be the same again

I'm looking down on my body below I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
I snatch a glimpse of the lights eternal rays I see a tunnel I stand amazed
Is this in limbo or heaven or hell? Maybe I'm going down there as well
