Nevermore — The Sanity Assassin lyrics

See the man of hungry mind
Never had a dream to call his own
His sin in form of thought
He lived to milk the minds of the blind
To rule the sea of imagination
And the sanity assassin
Is coming down to steal your mind
So he takes an innocent's vision
The blind lead the blind they say
Meet the sanity assasin
A trick of mind or the devil's whim
On the way to tomorrow's dream
He's fading away

See the man with the empty soul
Never had a face or will of his own
So he took another's pride
And he made a mask of faults
Defensive anger and false emotion

And the sanity assassin
Is coming down in a stream of black
So he takes what he cannot live
The black leads the blind astray
Meet the sanity assassin
A trick of mind or the devil's whim
On the way to tomorrow's dream
He's fading away

Sing your sweet poison
Stealer of dreams
Bleed your sweet anguish
And the form of dreams are born

Don't be afraid to
Dream outside the lines
Don't be afraid
Of painting pictures with your mind
Don't be afraid
Your path is not of sorrow
Don't be afraid
Dreams are immortal

Rise in the coming tide
Wave after wave of sleep
Crushing down
Hopes of the weakened and knowing
Awash in the undertow, falling away

Listen as the tale begins
To now unweave
The will of strong minds
He'll never deceive
I speak the words to lay me down
I am ever strong
Against the all-knowing
Thief of imagination

Dreams are immortal
