I fell into a Nightmare

I fell into a Nightmare upside down and out of mind
Air now rushing by me Clocks no longer telling time

The ground came up to meet me
It was then I thought I Knew
What really Made the grass scream green
What Made my sky’s cry blue

I smacked into that solid earth
My body limp and free
My insides spilling over the ground
All the colors I did see

I lay blood stained and broken
Blood rushing out of me
Turning into mice and men
They screamed and screamed and screamed

Away they crawled so quickly
My body now a butchers mess
Into the ground I fell once more
But no sins did I confess

Maggots crawled into my arm but pain they did not bring
Yet still they dined upon my flesh, a dinner fit for kings
