There is a place that no-one knows
Where demons live and evil grows
No children laugh, no dolphins play
No solid line t’wixt night and day
 
I found that place that no-one knows
Where demons live and evil grows
T’was called the Dreamlands, far away
Where suns shine black and dead men lay
 
I found it once whilst chanting from
A Tome, a Book, forgotten long
I stumbled forth, fell through the door
Of somewhere rarely been before
 
Now, in that Dreamland far away
Where suns shine black and dead men lay
There was a cat with silver eyes
A siren in a deadly guise
 
She looked at me and told me this
Of broken dreams, a stolen kiss
That all men lust for love abound
Without it lost and never found
 
She stalked away not looking back
Down a lonely looking track
She turned around and gestured me
To follow through the woods and trees
 
Disturbed was I when looking ‘round
I heard a frightful deaf’ning sound
A scream, a cry from up above
A damned and dirty looking dove
 
It cried to me “Turn back, turn back
Don’t dare go down that lonely track
For when she has you on her own
She’ll tear your flesh from skin and bone!”
 
I shooed him off and went ahead
Deeper, deeper in she led
Til finally we came across
A courtyard steeped in vines and moss
 
A second warning came from there,
A stranger lurked without a care
“Turn around, go back” he said
“You come in here, you’ll end up dead!”
 
Ignoring him, I turned away
To face the shining light of day
My feline fright, my guiding light
Had shed her guise, ready to fight
 
My mind, it cracked and left me there
To fight this beast, though not quite fair
For in my hand became a shield
And in my left a lance to wield
 
We fought for days, my fiend and I,
Until at last, “Please stop” I cried
She raised her hand and cautioned me
To finish now or turn and flee
 
So flee I did, I ran alone
Now looking for a way back home
I called aloud “Just let me out!”
And out I was, well just about
 
I rose, awake and looked about
To hear another frightful shout
My fiend, my siren followed me
And was now grinning quite sickly
 
She drew up close, right up to me
And in a voice so full of glee;
"I'm back, I'm back, it's time to see
Which first, chaos? Anarchy!"
 
She pinned me down and licked my cheek
A chilling touch that left me weak
She grinned at me and grasped my head
Twisting it off, she left me for dead.
