Boy oh boy, look at the mess you're in
Another nightly run away from a hundred and ten
It seems as if you can just never win

Boy oh boy, let's review your situation
Another night full of your worst humiliation
It seems as if it's a dreadful hour long

What kind of sick pleasures derive from this game
Just twisted little people who indulge in your pain

Do you want to awake?
Boy, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the world is against
And the torture's intense
And there's never escape from your being seen
Boy, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the laughter it rings
Like a banshee's shriekings
And where everyone you know has turned against you it seems

Do you want to awake?

Girl oh girl, are you hearing this now?
All the sneering and laughing and jeering of the crowd
'Cause you're the center of attention so take a bow
(You might as well)

Girl oh girl, how do you suffer tonight?
All the prying eyes, and pointed fingers that are in your sight
'Cause there's something funny about your plight

What kind of sick pleasures derive from this game
Just twisted little people who indulge in your pain

Do you want to awake?
Girl, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the world is against
And the torture's intense
And there's never escape from your being seen
Girl, do you want to awake from your terrible dream?
Where the laughter it rings
Like a banshee's shriekings
And where everyone you know has turned against you it seems

Do you want to awake?

(They all watch and laugh as you try to run and hide
But there's no escape for you is there? No!
There's NOwhere to run and NOwhere to hide
All the ever-watching eyes of the people devise
Always devise a plan for your the next big surprise
So is there any escape
Are you ever waking up?
Just wake up and smell the coffee because it's all a bunch of lies!)

Do I want to awake?
Oh, do I want to awake from my terrible dream?
Where the world is against
And the torture's intense
And there's never escape from my being seen
Oh, how I want to awake from my terrible dream
Where the laughter it rings
Like a banshee's shriekings
And where everyone I know has turned against me it seems

(Or is this my twisted little game?)

Do you want to awake?
Do you want to awake, boy?
Do you want to awake, girl?
Do I want to awake?
The full title is actually "A Terrible Dream (My Twisted Game)".

This was a song I wrote. Yep. Once again I can't play instruments so it's probably never gonna be an actual song but who knows. Maybe one day?

Either way I've been hardcore inspired to write songs about...well everything lately. I must say right now my biggest inspiration is Muse. They have pretty diverse subject matter and I love it |3

Now...about this song's meaning. There could be an awful lot of things for it. Up to interpretation really. I know this means a few different things to me. One thing it stands for that's less personal than the other things is how people sometimes can feel that the world is against them. How people are all just sitting back and laughing at you and how pathetic you are. But it's just a lie, hence that last line in that one little bridge type part that says it's all a lie. That and the part near the end where it says "Or is this my twisted little game?" that suggests maybe it's just you all along that thinks that.
It has multiple meanings really to me. What does it mean to you?

Lyrics (c) me :iconmrsaturn123:

Blah, that sucks I'm sorry D:
I don't usually have that bad of dreams I was mostly using it as a metaphor for things but I've certainly had them before.

That is really great. I have read it through a couple of time and enjoyed lyrics more each time. I do actually have an idea for a tune and vocals but I would say it requires two people to make it most effective but that is my opinion. Either way, it would be interesting if you could fully complete it.

Oh wow, thanks. I'm glad you like it that much ^^
I had a melody in my head at the time I was writing it but I probably lost it by now. I would love to work on it again in the future though. Hopefully one day.

I'd say that sums up what the song means to me, but at the same time it kind of reminds me of the part of MOTHER 3 where everyone is on Tanetane Island and hallucinating about their loved ones saying all sorts of nasty things to them, in particular Claus' taunt about how everyone Lucas loves is coming to throw rocks at him.

I can see what you mean.
Damn that part was freaky too.
And funny thing too is how this whole song is represented as a dream and how in Mother 3 that whole thing is a hallucination...which in some ways is similar |D

This is amazing, Jesse :love:
Have you got a tune for it? x3?

And. It pretty much meant the same thing to me as it did to you. And I can totally relate xD

Thanks :3
I sort of do. A basic melody in my head but I have to work it out...and somehow put instruments with it even though I can't play anything XD ;

Yeah, that's a pretty universal theme I think with some people. It means a lot of different things to me but that's the most prominent for sure.
But that's great, I love it when people can relate to my writing |D
