My body becomes numb

Scarlet dreams invade my mind

Dark whispers in my thoughts

And darker demons, just on time

Carry me awa, flying stallion

Take my ground, take my calm

Take away my breath, with roaring sounds


Take us to higher thinking

See the heavens unfold

But leave only one thing

The fear of our falling doom

Curse you, fear of failure

How many have you taken?

Curse you, fear of failure

How many hearts have you broken?


Fear of flight? Or to fall?

Fear of Death? Or to live?

Why do we fear the unstoppable?

Who do we fear to be free?
