'Oblivion isn't a bliss.'

Nightmare That's My Dream

As I stood at the edge of a cliff,

As I stood at the edge of a cliff, Contemplating my next step,

As I stood at the edge of a cliff, Contemplating my next step, I heard a voice coming from the abyss,

As I stood at the edge of a cliff, Contemplating my next step, I heard a voice coming from the abyss, ‘Don’t jump,’ it said, ‘oblivion isn’t a bliss.’

All I could see was darkness,

All I could see was darkness, Unable to make out what’s below,

All I could see was darkness, Unable to make out what’s below, I wondered if I should plunge to my death,

All I could see was darkness, Unable to make out what’s below, I wondered if I should plunge to my death, Taking one last deep breath.

‘Don’t do it!’ The voice came.

‘Don’t do it!’ The voice came. Who was down there? I couldn’t see,

‘Don’t do it!’ The voice came. Who is down there? I couldn’t see, Deep in my thoughts, I mused again,

‘Don’t do it!’ The voice came. Who is down there? I couldn’t see, Deep in my thoughts, I mused again, Should I step forward before I go insane?

As I kept standing there, on the ledge,

As I kept standing there, on the ledge, Thinking, how quiet everything had become,

As I kept standing there, on the ledge, Thinking, how quiet everything had become, My heartbeat was the only sound I heard,

As I kept standing there, on the ledge, Thinking, how quiet everything had become, My heartbeat was the only sound I heard, So loud, it filled my very soul with dread.

A cool breeze played with my hair.

A cool breeze played with my hair. I felt so many emotions at once,

A cool breeze played with my hair. I felt so many emotions at once, Wanting to fall down into a bottomless pit,

A cool breeze played with my hair. I felt so many emotions at once, Wanting to fall down into a bottomless pit, I felt my despair, there was no end to it.

Life wasn’t good, nothing holding me back,

Life wasn’t good, nothing holding me back, Thinking of everything I had lost,

Life wasn’t good, nothing holding me back, Thinking of everything I had lost, ‘You fool!’ At last I heard it again,

Life wasn’t good, nothing holding me back, Thinking of everything I had lost, ‘You fool!’ At last I heard it again, ‘Your life isn’t all bad, don’t die in vain.’

Not a ray of light I was able to see,

Not a ray of light I was able to see, The pitch black had engulfed me,

Not a ray of light I was able to see, The pitch black had engulfed me, I had yet to make up my mind,

Not a ray of light I was able to see, The pitch black had engulfed me, I had yet to make up my mind, If I jumped, what would I find?

I took a step back, feeling free.

I took a step back, feeling free. I made my decision, no longer afraid.

I took a step back, feeling free. I made my decision, no longer afraid. Closing my eyes, I decided not to leap,

I took a step back, feeling free. I made my decision, no longer afraid. Closing my eyes, I decided not to leap, That last hope I would forever keep.

That’s when I woke up with a start,

That’s when I woke up with a start, Shaken back to reality, gasping,

That’s when I woke up with a start, Shaken back to reality, gasping, ‘What an odd dream,’ I thought,

That’s when I woke up with a start, Shaken back to reality, gasping, ‘What an odd dream,’ I thought, ‘I won’t lose to death after the battle I have fought.’

Stretching my arms, I soaked in the sunlight.

Stretching my arms, I soaked in the sunlight. Coming through the open window, start of a new day,

Stretching my arms, I soaked in the sunlight. Coming through the open window, start of a new day, The dream would stay with me forever, I knew that,

Stretching my arms, I soaked in the sunlight. Coming through the open window, start of a new day, The dream would stay with me forever, I knew that, Yet, living a worthy life, I was going to take a shot at.
