and we woke up here
somewhere inbetween apocalypse and the deep
somewhere neither here nor there, existing in time
we awoke as in a dream of the night
to behold the reflection of fate on a broken mirror
tainted visions, blood bath, body count
and a pandemic on powerful prowl
we awoke to slumber
awoke to slain numbers
awoke to hounding fear
in the streets and corners

and we woke up here
somewhere in between a dream and nightmare
