lyrics

I warned you all,
And yet you ignored me.
Said I was blind,
I was the one who'd seen.

The world's end is closing in,
The population engulfed with fear.
It's all about to begin,
But no-one ever listens to a seer.

Haunted by terrible dreams,
Visions of a world in anarchy.
Things no man should ever see,
I watch it as it becomes reality.

My life was fine,
Until that fateful day.
I saw the signs,
The visions came my way.

Estranged from those I once knew,
Preoccupied with the burden of the truth.
A message that won't get through,
Sometimes I wonder who they listen to.

Haunted by terrible dreams,
Visions of a world in anarchy.
Things no man should ever see,
I watch it as it becomes reality.

Everybody ignored me,
Just look at you now.
I offered you a solution,
But you all turned it down.
When I said I knew,
They said I didn't have a clue.

Instead of solving the problem,
I'm put in a padded cell.
Now it crumbles around me,
As our lives become hell.
When I said I knew,
They called me Oracle of Doom

I was branded a harbinger,
Of things that couldn't occur.
Written off as a lunatic,
And rushed out of sight.
When they called me insane,
I had no one else to blame.

His condition declines,
The visions have worsened with time.
He lies awake,
Unable to leave this state.

Why does no one hear my cries?
Every night that passes by I lose a piece of my mind.
How can I trust what they say?
When they're the bastards that took my life away.

Haunted by terrible dreams,
Visions of a world in anarchy.
Things no man should ever see,
I watch it as it becomes reality.
