Just a Nightmare

Life would be so simple
If it wasn’t for the load,
And I know I’m miles away from heaven’s golden road.

Sometimes I’m just a monkey
Who is fighting with a snake,
And life is just a nightmare from which I can’t awake.

Yesterday I was crawling
Through a swamp of poison mud,
Last night I was drinking from a bucket filled with blood.

And this morning my boat was sinking
To the bottom of a frozen lake
And life is just a nightmare from which I can’t awake.

My brain is getting softer
And my body’s getting cold,
Maybe I’m just a story that was better left untold.

In my hand I hold a diamond,
But is it real or is it a fake?
Life is just a nightmare from which I can’t awake.

All those nights of so much pleasure
I no longer can recall.
Someday soon I’m gonna wake up and have nothing left at all.

I’ve heard a rumor, but I don’t believe it,
That there’s a heart that doesn’t break.
Life is just a nightmare from which I can’t awake.

If summer’s finally over,
Can a fall be far behind?
Can someone show me how to get me out of my lonesome mind?

Sometimes I’m just a monkey
Who is fighting with a snake,
And life is just a nightmare from which I can’t awake.
