Deja Vu (Infinite Dreams) – ’11-#2

Infinite dreams I can’t deny them
Infinity is hard to comprehend
I couldn’t hear those screams
Even in my wildest dreams

Suffocation waking in a sweat
Scared to fall asleep again
In case the dream begins again
Someone chasing and cannot move
Standing rigid a nightmare’s statue
What a dream, when will it end
And will I transcend?

Restless sleep, the mind’s in turmoil
One nightmare ends, another fertile
It’s getting to me so scared to sleep
But scared to wake now, in too deep

Even though it reached new heights
I rather like the restless nights
It makes me wonder, it makes me think
There’s more to this, I’m on the brink
It’s not the fear of what’s beyond
It’s just that I might not respond
I have an interest almost craving
Would I like to get too far in?

It can’t be all coincidence
Too many things are evident
You tell me “You’re an unbeliever”
Spiritualist? Well me, I’m neither
But wouldn’t you like to know
The truth
Of what’s out there to have the proof
And find out just which side
You’re on
Where would you end in Heaven or
In Hell?

Help me! Help me to find my true
Self without seeing the future
Save me, save me from torturing
Myself even within my dreams

There’s got to be just more to it
Than this
Or tell me why do we exist
I’d like to think that when I die
I’d get a chance another time
And to return and live again
Reincarnate, play the game
Again and again and again and again

This week’s Illustration Friday theme is Deja Vu. I thought of the Iron Maiden song of the same name, but then decided on a different Iron Maiden song for inspiration – Infinite Dreams. (get your eighties headbanging ready for this one!)
The lyrics of this song really speak to the concept of deja vu – a feeling that you’ve experienced something before.
