​Arsenic Dreams

This song is by The Great Deceiver and appears on the album A Venom Well Designed (2002).

Arsenic dreams and shattered hopes
In darkness steeped
Venomous souls
Sedated lives at reptile speed
Stripped of hope and left to bleed

I find myself smaller and smaller
Each and every day
Rejections, expectations
Crush me with their weight

Arsenic dreams and shattered hopes
In darkness steeped
Venomous souls

Arsenic dreams rush burning cold
In darkness steeped
Anguish unfolds
Within man beats the heart of disease
As the earth drinks the blood of the meek

Arsenic dreams burning cold
In darkness steeped
Anguish unfolds

No gods, no masters, no pre-destined fate
Armageddon lies dormant inside us
I see your creation foaming with rage
Misanthropic and righteaous

Arsenic dreams and shattered hopes
In darkness steeped
Venomous souls
Arsenic dreams
No gods, no masters, no pre-destined fate
Armageddon lies domant inside us
I see your creation foaming with rage
Misanthropic and righteous

The world turns under the burning sky
