Song: Hope (The Nightmare)

The general concept for this was to create a sort of pseudo-rap style of song.

Lyrics Print

Came down here they told me where you'd be. I'm standing right
here. Can't you see? I've got somethin for you. What you got
for me? I'm gonna be rich, I'm gonna be hot--gonna play guitar.
The next big superstar, that's who I are.

Gonna sell you my soul like it's part of my shoe. Speaking of
which, if you were in my shoes what would you do? It's not so
obvious, not so clear--now that we're here. Give me the power
I sought, or it's all for naught.

But please don't give me any hope.
Something so easy shouldn't have to be hard.
Something so close shouldn't be so far.
The only explanation: one lost soul's beginning is the nightmare's end.

Many years ago I sold my soul, got a bargain and a deal, walked
away with a steal. Fantasy blossomed into truth off of my heels.
You're gonna die, I'm gonna die--best we just forget we ever even
lived. Don't you be aware of yourself. The thought's primitive.

Let's veer from the path let's walk through the woods, lose
ourselves. Yes, we could. All you've ever been afraid of's good.
I know you wanna walk back now, but don't look now, we're at the
end. All you've ever been afraid of ...

So please don't give me any hope.
Something so easy shouldn't have to be hard.
Something so close shouldn't be so far.
The only explanation: one lost soul's beginning is the nightmare's end.

All I ever know is only in my head.
All I ever fear is what I don't forget.
Be the one to show me I was always wrong when I sang this song ...

Just please don't give me any hope.
Something so easy shouldn't have to be hard.
Something so close shouldn't be so far.
The only explanation: one lost soul's beginning is the nightmare's end.
